The Cement

 

Cement is an essential raw material for the construction sector.

It is a fine powder that sets and hardens after a few hours when mixed with water.

The cement is mainly used to produce concrete and mortar after mixing it with aggregates (sand and / or gravel) and water.

In Europe, the production and marketing of cements is governed by a harmonized standard (EN 197).

In France, this standard is completed by a voluntary NF marking (delivered by AFNOR), which is an additional guarantee of quality for customers.


The cement results from a fine and homogeneous grinding of several mineral raw materials :

• The main one is clinker, which results from the burning in a kiln at 1450 ° of a mixture of mineral raw materials (mainly limestone and clay). Cem'In'Eu does not produce clinker but buys it in Europe and around the Mediterranean.

• Calcium sulphate (gypsum) is added and is used to regulate the setting of cement.

• Cem'In'Eu will also add ground limestone for specific grades of cement so as to meet with customer needs and to reduce the C02 emissions associated with the production of clinker.


The various qualities of cement in our product range will be marketed either in bulk or in separate bags, in order to adapt to the different processing methods of our customers (construction and civil engineering companies, road companies, masons, farmers, producers of ready-mix concrete, pre-fabricated concrete products, mortar, etc. ).

The Products of Alienor Cements             

 

BULK

We produce 4 types of cement : CEM I 52.5 R, CEM II / A-LL 42.5 N, CEM II / A-LL 42.5 R et CEM II / B-LL 32.5 R with the CE marking.  

The procedure for NF marking is in process and we expect to obtain this by the summer of 2019.

These cements are especially adapted to our BPE (ready-mixed concrete) and Prefabricated (pre-cast concrete) customers. 


BAG


The EUROPEAN CEMENT (“LE CIMENT EUROPEAN”) bag contains a CEM II / B-LL 32.5 R or CEM I 52.5 R cement and includes the CE marking. 

The procedure for NF marking is in process and we expect to obtain this by the summer of 2019.

The EUROPEAN CEMENT is a polyethylene bag, sealed and completely water-proof. 

This technology, completely new to France, allows for outside storage in all weathers and completely avoids losses on the building sites.

The bag, once empty, is recyclable using traditional construction channels.

The EUROPEAN CEMENT is available and packaged either of cement quality CEM II / B-LL 32.5 R in a 35kg bag or of cement quality CEM I 52.5 R a 30kg bag. For CEM II / B-LL 32.5 R cement we offer the choice either of a standard pallet of 42 bags (1.47 tonnes) or a reduced size pallet of 28 bags (980 kg).

Since February 2019, CEM II / B-LL 32.5 R cement is also available in a smaller quantity of 20kg and equipped with a carrying handle allowing for much easier handling.
