43 Grade OPC Cement

Ordinary Portland Cement

Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) is graded according to their strength. The grade indicates the compression strength (Mpa) of the concrete that will attain after 28 days of setting.

53 Grade cement is used for fast paced construction were initial strength is to be achieved quickly. 53 Grade cement has fast setting compared to 43-grade cement. 53 Grade attains 27 Mpa in 7 days compared to 23 Mpa by 43-grade cement.

43 Grade OPC Cement is commonly used for plastering works, Non-RCC structures, pathways etc where initial setting time is not of importance.
