Brazilian cement maker Camargo Correa Cimentos (CCC) plans to export its first official shipment of white cement to the US in 2005, Brazilian news service AE Setorial quoted product marketing coordinator Vanessa Lopo as saying. 

Samples have already been shipped to the US for tests and exports there are expected to reach 30,000t, said Lopo, adding that most of the white cement will be used for industrial purposes, such as in mortar production. 

White cement exports from its Pedro Leopoldo factory in Minas Gerais state reach 10%, which should increase to 25% with the US shipments. Currently, Argentina is CCC’s largest international client.
