Rugby Sulfate Cement
Sulfate Cement - Specialist Cement
Rugby® Sulfate is designed to prevent the rapid deterioration of concrete made from Portland cements which occurs in structures exposed to certain types of soils and groundwaters.
Building Research Establishment document Special Digest 1; ‘Concrete in aggressive ground’, recognises that Portland-Fly Ash cement (incorporating at least 25% fly ash) provides enhanced durability when used in concrete placed in aggressive ground conditions.
Special Digest 1 permits CEM II Portland-Fly Ash cement in the same aggressive sulfate ground conditions as Sulfate Resisting Portland Cement, (SRPC), to BS 4027.
Delivery & Storage
Delivered by road in a curtain-sided vehicle, the standard load size is 28 - 30 tonnes. All CEMEX drivers are fully trained and experienced in the safe delivery and unloading of our vehicles, but please do all you can to ensure your site is accessible with no obstructions.
Rugby® Sulfate is available in paper sacks delivered as shrink-hooded, 1.4 tonne modules on non-chargeable pallets. To avoid premature deterioration of the reducing agent incorporated in the cement for control of soluble Chromium (VI), storage should be in accordance with the recommendations given on bags and despatch documents.
Health & Safety

Contact between cement powder and body fluids (eg sweat and eye fluids) may also cause irritation, dermatitis or burns. There is serious risk of damage to the eyes. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection.
In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of clean water. Keep out of reach of children. Contains chromium (VI), may cause allergic reaction, the risk of which is increased if the cement is used beyond the declared storage period shown on bags and despatch documents.
