BS EN 197-1:2011 Cement. Composition, specifications and conformity criteria for common cements
This European Standard defines and gives the specifications of 27 distinct common cements, 7 sulfate resisting common cements as well as 3 distinct low early strength blast furnace cements and 2 sulfate resisting low early strength blast furnace cements and their constituents.
The definition of each cement includes the proportions in which the constituents are to be combined to produce these distinct products in a range of nine strength classes.
The definition also includes requirements which the constituents have to meet. It also includes mechanical, physical, and chemical requirements. Furthermore, this standard states the conformity criteria and the related rules. Necessary durability requirements are also given.
