Make the ‘white choice’ with White Cement

Make the ‘white choice’ with White Cement

White cement is ideal for applications requiring a decorative brilliant white finish. It eliminates the addition of white oxide for use in grouts and renders where a premium whiteness is required. Available in bulk and bagged form, Sandhub is Sydney’s ‘one-stop’ shop for white cement and all your other earthly building needs.

What are the main differences between White Cement and Ordinary Grey Cement?

White cement and ordinary cement have several differences. Ordinary – or grey cement – contains high amounts of iron oxide and manganese oxide. White cement contains small amounts of these raw materials. White cement is finer than grey cement and is usually more expensive.

What is White Cement commonly used for?

White cement is a versatile building material. It is used to build large functional buildings or constructions made for more creative design-oriented products. It is used as a binder in concrete, concrete masonry, mortar and grouts. It is used in the manufacture of fibre cement products, in soil stabilisation in building construction, civil engineering projects and decorative DIY.

What are the benefits of White Cement?

White Cement is typically specified to ensure clean, bright, consistent colours, including light pastels. It allows a wide range of colour options for producing structural and architectural concrete, as well as masonry and cementitious building products.

Other advantages of White Cement include:

  • Can be used with additives and supplementary cementitious materials
  • It is versatile across many applications
  • Blends with raw materials to suit your project
  • Compatible with render and mortar plasticisers
  • Oxide can be added to achieve a deeper, coloured finish
  • Conforms to Australian Standards (AS3972).

Where does Sandhub get White Cement from?

Sandhub gets its white cement from Cement Australia, a leader in the Australian construction materials industry. The company has been proudly manufacturing high performance cement and general blended cements in Australia since 1890.

What are the steps involved when working with White Cement? 

Step 1: Combine cement, clean aggregate and sand in correct proportion in a non-porous vessel. Large jobs require a concrete mixer. Add a Cement Australia oxide to colour your project.

Step 2: Add clean water gradually and mix thoroughly. Use enough water to make a workable mix. Excess water ruins good concrete.

Step 3: Use the product immediately after mixing. Keep moist for 7 days for the best results.
