CEM II / B-M (P-W-L) 42,5 N

CEM II / B-M (P-W-L) 42,5 N is a Portland fly ash - pozzolan - limestone cement suitable for civil engineering, building applications, ready-mixed concrete and concrete products. In comparison with CEM I cement, it has higher sulphate resistance and a lower heat of hydration.

It is based on Portland type clinker mixed with cementitious materials. According to ELOT EN 197-1 CEM II / B-M (P-W-L) 42.5 N is a Composite Portland cement with strength category 42.5. It conforms to the requirements of ELOT EN 197-1 and carries a CE Mark.



Contractual concrete production.

Marine concrete.

A moderately low heat cement to reduce the thermally-induced stresses in large pours.

Can be used in most applications, where CEM I Portland cement or CEM IV pozollanic cement are used.


Reference should be made to the Greek Concrete Norm KTS 97.



Grey in color

Consistent strength meeting all the conformity criteria of ΕLΟΤ EN 197-1.

Compatible with admixtures.

Trial mixes are recommended to determine the optimum mix proportions.



CEM II / B-M (P-W-L) 42.5 N is available in bulk throughout Greece.



This product in bulk should be stored in sealed silo and the unopened bags clear of the ground in cool dry conditions. Information on the maximum storage period can be found on the bag.


Conditions of use

CEM II / B-M (P-W-L) 42.5 N may be used for wide varieties of concretes.

To achieve optimum performance from CEM II / B-M (P-W-L) 42.5 N in concrete or other products, it is essential to be used correctly.

Recommended mixes could be given from the contacts listed.

It is essential to use the correct materials, proportion and mix the materials properly, add the correct amount of water, compact, cure and protect as appropriate. When using CEM II / B-M (P-W-L) 42.5 N cement, it is particularly important to ensure that effective curing is applied.

Normal hot and cold weather practice should also be followed.

The final finish quality of this material will depend upon the operative having the required skills and a familiarity with the material and its application methods.
