CEMENT, AN ESSENTIAL MATERIAL
Cement is a widely used material, mainly employed to make concrete, the most common construction material worlwide.
Although the same process to produce cement (developed by Louis Vicat in 1817) is now used around the world, cement production is not less complex.
All ou cements are certified by AFNOR CERTIFICATION in accordance with the specifications of standard NF EN 197-1 for common cement and a different standard for special cements and also in accordance with complementary propoerties defined in NF-LH ('hydraulic binder') mark reference documents and related standards.
The quality assurance system implemented in our plants is monitored by AFNOR CERTIFICATION and by the Paris Material testing laboratory (Laboratoire d'essais des Matériaux de la Ville de Paris) through on-site samples taken every month.
