Vicat Prompt Natural Cement 1 Ton (40 x25kg bags)
Prompt is a natural cement, mined and manufactured in Grenoble in France. It is burned at similar temperature to lime and contains nothing more than what is dug from the earth. Natural cement has been produced using the same method for over 150 years and works well with heavy aggregates, and bio-sourced aggregates when blended with limes.
Prompt has been in use continuously since the 1850's. It is a very simple material with some complex characteristics, manufactured from Argillaceous Limestone (Limestone containing some clays). It is simply mined, fired (at much lower temperatures than ordinary cement) and milled. Nothing is added to it, nothing is taken away.
Having been in use for over a hundred and fifty years it has been tested and proven well beyond the abilities of Ordinary Portland Cement.
