Bauhinia Brand Masonry Cement (MC-5)

Development of Masonry Cement

In the 60s-70s of U.K., Italy and various countries in Europe, masonry cement was used mainly for the production of plaster and related standards had been set up to ensure its quality.  With the rapid development of masonry cement and plaster products in China, many countries have produced these two products to meet the needs of the market.

 

Advantages of Bauhinia Brand Masonry Cement (MC-5):

Bauhinia Brand Masonry Cement (MC-5) aims to satisfy the requirements of users for brick wall, smooth finishing and decoration works. Raw material consisted of additives – grinding aids with advantages set forth as below:

1.   Easy to use. Just mix a fixed proportion of masonry cement, sands and water together.  No need to use extra material.

2.    Good Workability, easy to manage.

3.    Good water retentivity and good adhesive strength.

4.    The color of the masonry cement is lighter than ordinary plaster.  This would make painting easier.

5.    More resistance to chemical attack

6.    Our Masonry cement (MC-5) is tested in accordance with BS 5224: 1995 and ENV-413-1:1995 requirements.

Formula:
