Scope

This specification covers ten types of portland cement as follows:

  1. Type I – For general use, when the special properties specified for any other type are not required;
  2. Type IA – Air-entraining cement for the same uses as Type I, where air entrainment is desired;
  3. Type II – For general use, more especially when moderate sulfate resistance is desired;
  4. Type IIA – Air-entraining cement for the same uses as Type II, where air entrainment is desired;
  5. Type II(MH) – For general use, more especially when moderate heat of hydration and moderate sulfate resistance are desired.
  6. Type II(MH)A – Air-entraining cement for the same uses as Type II(MH), where air entrainment is desired
  7. Type III – For use when high early strength is desired
  8. Type IIIA – Air-entraining cement for the same use as Type III, where air entrainment is desired
  9. Type IV – For use when low heat of hydration is desired
  10. Type V – For use when high sulfate resistance is desired
