PQX Cement
Quick Setting Ultra-Rapid Hardening Cement

Pozament PQX Cement is a quick setting ultra-rapid hardening cement for use in producing concrete for the rapid repair and replacement or construction of concrete roads and airfields where time is limited. PQ-X Cement is used as a direct replacement for Portland cement and admixtures in the production of concrete. Concrete manufactured using PQ-X Cement is mainly used when restricted working time necessitates ultra-rapid strength gain where the work programme is of short duration.

Why use Pozament PQX Cement

Pozament PQX Cement offers rapid strength gain. Concretes made with PQX cement can exceed 20 N/mm2 in 2 hours and 40 N/mm3 in 4 hours. See technical datasheet for details.
Pozament PQX Cement sets rapidly allowing fast completion of repairs and earlier return to service for infrastructure like concrete roads, rail beds, bridges and runways.
Pozament PQX Cement produce concretes that reach up to 62 N/mm2 after 28 days. See technical datasheet for details.


Where can Pozament PQX Cement be used?

Ultra rapid strength gain cement for faster concrete repair and replacement

Pozament PQX Cement produces concretes that set quickly and gain strength rapidly. This makes it suitable for fast efficient repair and replacement of concrete slabs in a range of settings.
Fast setting cement for concrete road repair and replacement

Concretes made using PQ-X Cement gain strength rapidly allowing sections of concrete based roads to be repaired or replaced with limited road closures, minimising disruption to road users. Read our case studies for more details.
Rapid strength gain cement for airfield runways and standing areas

Pozament PQX Cement is suitable for structural repairs to concrete surfacing at airfields with minimal operational delays.
Rapid setting cement for rail beds

Pozament PQX Cement is suitable for installation, repair and replacement of concrete rail beds. It allows fast, permanent repairs within narrow time windows.
Fast setting cement for car park decks

PQX Cement is ideal for use in concrete for installation and repairs to car park decks and similar load bearing structures.
Fast setting cement for bridges

Fast setting times, and rapid strength gain makes PQX Cement ideal for use in concrete for concrete bridge deck repair and replacement.
