Cement depending on its type is used in making concrete counterparts, cement blocks, in mass and hot weather concreting, building foundation, walling ,tiling, curb , utility pole, anti-sulfation, and many other applications

Portland Cement type 1
is the same as ordinary cement which is available in white or gray. The white one is used in making concrete counterparts because in spite of its high price it has precise color consistency. 

Portland cement type 2
is also known as modified cement. Modified cement can be used in mass and hot weather concreting. In fact, this type is the most widely used type of cement, because it has many applications in building foundation, walling (brick, clay, block, etc.), tiling and many others. This type of cement is also used in the construction of cement blocks, curb and various types of utility pole.

Portland cement type 3
is referred to under other headings such as regulated-set cement or hardening cement. It is more useful when the exploitation work has to be done earlier.
This cement is cured quickly in cold weather conditions and the only thing that should be considered while using it is the use of antifreeze.

In Low heat Portland cement (type 4) by reducing the amount of C3A C3S, the hydration temperature is greatly reduced and it is used in mass concreting. Of course, the production of this type of cement in the world is low and attempts are made to use alternative cements (such as type 5) instead. 

Portland cement type 4
is known as slow setting cement. This cement is used in high temperature over 40 degrees, in lower speed concreting and in layers.

Portland cement type 5
is also known as anti-sulfate cement. Therefore, Portland cement type 5 is used when the environment of the concrete structure is exposed to severe sulfation.

Grout cement is composed of water, cement, sand and other additives. Grouting is used to fill empty spaces and large cracks as well as to prevent cement from being flaky. Grouts are in the form of powder that after mixing with water, they are used as a fluid mortar. Buffer grout is the most widely used type of grout.

White Portland cement is made like ordinary portland cement, except that its raw materials do not contain iron oxide, so clay should not be used in making it, but in this case, the cost will increase, so the same raw materials in addition to potassium chloride or calcium chloride are used, which is combined with iron oxide in a cement kiln to give iron chloride, which is a gas that evaporates and then the cement color turns white. Iron oxide should not consist of more than 0.02% of white cement total weight. 

Different types of cement will be used in various forms such as concrete, building facades, wall and floor coverings, construction of columns and foundations and also to increase the safety and strength of the structure.

Today, different types of construction cements with different physical, chemical and functional characteristics are available in the consumer markets.

Different types of building cement in combination with water and the surrounding air will be fully integrated and will create a structure impermeable to water, heat and moisture.
