CEMEX OPC is produced by burning a precisely specified mixture of raw materials containing lime, silica, alumina and small quantities of other materials to form a clinker. The clinker, together with calcium sulfate to control setting, is then ground to produce cement of the required fineness. Up to 5% of minor additional constituents (typically, limestone, fly ash or granulated blast furnace slag) may be incorporated at the grinding stage.
- Can be used with admixtures to produce concretes suitable for a wide range of applications

Contact between cement powder and body fluids (e.g. sweat and eye fluids) may also cause irritation, dermatitis or burns. There is serious risk of damage to the eyes. Wear suitable waterproof protective clothing, gloves and eye / face protection. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of clean water. Keep out of reach of children.
