ASEC Minya Cement launches sulphate resistant cement
Published: 18 February 2014

ASEC Minya Cement has launched its sulphate resistant cement (SRC) entitled ‘ASEC Al Mokawm.'

The SRC type protects concrete from the effects of sulphate salts which are usually found in surrounding environments such as agricultural soil.  Use of the cement also results in a reduction of water permeability in the finished concrete product, and thereby a decrease in cracks.

Amr Gemeyie, commercial director, said: “The company has launched ASEC Al Mokawm cement to reflect its ability to stem the fast changing and diversified market needs in addition to the exact criteria of the construction environment in Egypt.”


ASEC Al Mokawm is produced in line with Egyptian and international manufacturing standards. It has been designed for use in all types of concrete constructions that are directly exposed to the negative impact of sulphate salts including sewage treatment projects, agricultural land with poor drainage, industrial drainage projects, irrigation construction (dams and barrages), foundation works of bridges and different types of piles, tunnels, plane concrete foundation works in coastal areas and costal protection concrete blocks and the production of precast concrete elements such as tunnel segments and sewage pipes.
