Republic Type V®

REPUBLIC® TYPE V Cement is a high performance Portland cement ideal for applications requiring high sulfate resistance. 

Why Use High Sulfate Resistant Cement

Sulfate attack is a common form of concrete deterioration that occurs when concrete comes into contact with soluble sulfates, present in seawater, groundwater, sewage and some soils.  The reaction of tri-calcium aluminates (C3A) in the cement with these soluble sulfates form ettringite, an expansive gel within the concrete structure that causes internal tensile stress and eventually results to structural cracking.
 
Since REPUBLIC TYPE V has less than 5 percent C3A content than TYPE I cement, the concrete will be significantly less vulnerable to sulfate attacks.  

Advantages
