CEMEX launches New, light-coloured, blended bagged cement


CEMEX is launching a new light-coloured cement, Rugby+ Premium that will be available from builders' merchants in 25 kg bags from 7 August. New Rugby+ Premium is a CEMII blended Portland Limestone Cement.

It includes air-entraining additives for improved performance, and has been developed in partnership with builders' merchants and end users for applications where light colour, workability and frost resistance are key.

CEMII blended cements using replacements, such as limestone, are part of CEMEX's wider commitment to sustainable development and could reduce CO2 emissions by up to 18% for each bag of Rugby+ Premium produced.

A recent successful customer trial suggested that end users favoured the light colour and workability of the new product, which makes it ideal for use in mortar, render, screed and all visible concrete applications. For all general building applications CEMEX offers Rugby+ Cement, a sustainable blended Portland Fly Ash Cement.

The Rugby range also includes Fast Set, Lime, Rapid, Sulphate and White Cement for more specialist applications. CEMEX is a global building solutions company and leading supplier of cement, ready-mixed concrete and aggregates.

In the UK, CEMEX also has a significant share of the asphalt, concrete block and mortar markets. The company has a national supply network in the UK with over 500 locations, to ensure that quality building materials is available to customers locally.
