Mix Designs

AALBORG WHITE® is available in:


From Cement to Concrete

Water - Use clean water e.g. tap water.

Aggregates - The aggregates have a major effect on the appearance of the finished concrete surface. The aggregates should therefore be selected, stored and used in an appropriate way so as to meet the aesthetic demands to the finished concrete surface. The mix of the aggregates should be kept as constant as possible in order to avoid differences in shade of the finished concrete surface.

Admixtures - All admixtures should be colourless to avoid discoloration of the white or light concrete. Air entraining agents are known to reduce the tendency of efflorescence. Such admixtures that act upon the setting and hardening should also be used in accordance with usual guidelines. To ensure the requested white colour it is recommended always to make trial mixes.

Constructions and casting - The constructions should be of a design that is suitable for repelling pollution from percolating water and dirt. Particular care must be exercised in the choice of basic materials, casting materials, mixing and casting processes, curing, and finishing.

From Cement to Mortar

AALBORG WHITE® is often used as binder in various types of mortar and together with lime in a lime-cement mortar. Tools used for mixing the mortar should be stainless in order to preserve the white colour.

Storage - AALBORG WHITE® cement can be stored for at least six months, if kept indoor under suitable and dry conditions. Care should be taken to avoid moist. Do not store cement bags directly on the ground or on a floor or even with direct contact to an outer wall. We recommend that cement bags are stacked on a counterfloor 10-20 cm above the regular floor or on pallets. The cavity below the counterfloor should be ventilated to keep the bags dry. Cement that has been stored for a long time should be examined by e.g. trial castings prior to use. If the cement contains stony lumps it should not be used, as the strength cannot be guaranteed.

Service - Our technical advisory department is here for you, should you require assistance in respect to mix designs or to the use of our AALBORG WHITE® cement.

Health and Safety

Contact with cement mixed with water or body fluids (e.g. sweat or eye fluid) or with concrete or mortar should be avoided as it may cause irritation, dermatitis or burns. If such contact occurs, the affected area should be washed without delay with plenty of clean water. In case of eye contact rinse immediately with clean water and seek medical advice.
