Microcem

Ultrafine Cements

Tarmac offers a wide range of ultrafine cements, specifically produced and formulated for use in geotechnical engineering and a variety of other specialised applications.

The MICROCEM® range of controlled fineness cements is produced by finely grinding Portland cement clinker with small quantities of set regulating additives. The range is manufactured in a controlled factory environment under an ISO 9001 accredited Quality Management System, using a specialist production process and the strictest control of particle size distribution to consistently achieve the highest levels of quality.

MICROCEM® is suitable for a range of applications, such as cement-based repair compounds, injection grouting and soil stabilisation and is available in a range of different finenesses, both as packed and bulk products.

Controlled setting and low bleed

Excellent penetration and waterproofing, particularly in tight fissures and low porosity soils

High ultimate strength and good long-term durability

Compatible with most admixture types

Can replace chemical grouts in some situations

Can be used with standard cement injection equipment

No hazardous fumes leading to a safer working environment

Microcem® 550

Fine cement, combining high fineness with good early strength development. Suitable for use in cement-based adhesives, repair compounds, flowing screeds and grouts.

Microcem® 650

Superfine cement (finer than MICROCEM®550) suitable for injection into joints, cracks, fissures and soils to produce a water-tight mass of grouted rock or soil.

Microcem® 650 SR

Superfine cement suitable for injection into joints, cracks, fissures and soils to produce a water-tight mass of grouted rock or soil. Similar fineness to MICROCEM® 650, but slower setting. Particularly suited for use in hot climates.

Microcem® 900

An ultrafine product (finer than MICROCEM® 650), suitable for injection into hard rock, tight joints and fissures.
