Banshiwala is a leading producer of OPC (Ordinary Portland Cement), PPC (Portland Pozzolana cement), and PSC (Portland Slag Cement). White cement is also available in the marketplace to be used in both, the interior and exterior of the building. We are one of the best cement industry in Rajasthan India whose main aim in providing quality cement to its clients. The raw minerals used in producing the cement are checked for their quality and checks are performed at every step of grinding of cement. Discussed below is the testing of OPC conducted at Banshiwala along with its uses and some series of steps that take place during cement solidifying.

Testing of Ordinary Portland Cement 

  • Flexural quality test
  • The warmth of the hydration test
  • Ignition test
  • Consistency test
  • Compressive quality test                                  
  • Specific gravity test
  • Elasticity test
  • Strength tests
  • Quality test
  • Setting time test

Some uses of OPC (Ordinary Portland Cement) are: 

  • It is utilized for general construction purposes. 
  • It is typically utilized for the fortified solid structures, extensions, asphalts, and where soil conditions are ordinary.
  •  It is likewise utilized for the greater part of solid stonework units.
  • It has extraordinary protection from splitting and shrinkage however has less protection from concoction assaults.


Cement can be characterized as the holding material having strong glue properties, through which construction materials are put together. Conventional/Ordinary Portland cement is one of the most broadly utilized types of cement all over the world. The name of Portland cement was given by Joseph Aspdin in 1824 because of its closeness to Portland stone (white-colored limestone) as compared to the shading and quality. 

Setting and Hardening Process at the plant:

When Portland cement is blended with water, its constituents experience a process of substance responses that cause it to set. This substance response with water is called “hydration”. Every single one of these responses happens at an alternate time and with various rates. These substance responses all include the expansion of water to the essential synthetic mixes. Expansion of every one of these responses gives information about how Ordinary Portland cement solidifies and gains quality. Those mixes and their job in solidifying of cement are as under:Best Cement Industry in Rajasthan India

Tricalcium silicate (C3S): Hydrates and solidifies quickly and is answerable for introductory set and early quality. Ordinary Portland cement with higher rates of C3S will display higher early quality.

Dicalcium silicate (C2S): Hydrates and solidifies gradually and is responsible for quality increments past multi-week.

Tricalcium aluminate (C3A): Hydrates and solidifies quickly. It releases a lot of heat very quickly and contributes to a small extent of the early quality of cement. Gypsum is added to Ordinary Portland cement to delay C3A hydration. Without gypsum, C3A hydration would cause standard Portland cement to set very quickly in the wake of including water.

Tetracalcium Aluminoferrite (C4AF): Hydrates quickly, however, it does not result in quality. Most customary Portland cement shading impacts are expected to C4AF.
