Castle White Cement is a high quality Portland cement with a wide range of uses. It has a particularly bright white appearance, making it ideal where visual impact, aesthetic or safety considerations are important - for anything from terrazzo flooring to safety barriers. In addition to the beauty of its appearance white cement has the same high performance and setting characteristics as grey Portland cement. White cement can be used to create stunning decorative elements or even whole buildings. It adds beauty to the performance of mortars, render and concrete. And of course, the beauty is lasting; it does not fade or wear away over time. Combined with the brilliance of its colour, this helps make it a perfect base for colouring. Pigment is more efficient when mixed with white cement and produces richer, deeper, truer colours.

Key Features
  • Bright white appearance
  • Excellent for aesthetic or safety reasons
  • High performance characteristics
  • Pure beauty that does not fade
  • Reduces amount of pigment in coloured concrete and mortar

Given its excellent durability and workability, White Cement can be used in any situation where traditional grey cement might be used. But it is most often used where safety or aesthetic considerations are important. As well as being appreciated for its bright white appearance, white cement is a perfect base for producing coloured products. Pigment is more efficient when white cement is used, producing richer and deeper colours.

Optimum strength and durability is achieved when the water content is kept as low as possible, consistent with ensuring satisfactory placing and thorough compaction. Other factors affecting strength include conditions of curing as well as the individual properties of the constituent materials and their proportions in the mix. The potential strength of any Portland cement-based product will only be best developed under saturated conditions. Excessive loss of water by evaporation to the surroundings should be guarded against, and for a period of at least seven days precautions should be taken to keep the concrete moist and to prevent premature drying. The rate of strength development will depend on ambient conditions and the initial temperature of the mix. As a general rule, fresh concrete should be kept within the range of 10°C to 30°C.In cold weather; freshly poured concrete should be protected against frost to prevent damage. At higher temperatures there is an increased risk of rapid loss of water by evaporation, leading to surface cracking.
