Prompt natural cement

Basic properties

Complementarity with lime

Using a small quantity of natural prompt cement in lime mortars gives resistance at early age and low shrinkage, without modifying the respirability characteristics or the low elasticity modulus. Since the industrial production starts, early XIXth century, natural cements have been used mixed with lime to accelerate their setting.


Precautions measures/Industry standards

Prompt natural cement is primarily used in mortar (Prompt natural cement mortar or natural lime–Prompt natural cement mortar). It is sometimes used in concrete. It has always been used in the same way as hydraulic binders.
