Using white cement allows a white concrete to be produced either to provide a white product or to create especially bold shades when used with our colours as seen in the Gelato Range. We are very excited by the possibilities this top quality product provides, at a very reasonable price.
Two products are available:
The Aalborg Cement is the most consistently white cement available. It has some significant advantages over competing products and has proven itself over many years. Here is a picture showing the relative colours of white cement vs grey cement when made as a mortar (cement and water)
When added to a normal concrete mix, the colour is slightly affected by the stone colour i.e. it is slightly darkened. But still, SuperWhite concrete provides a much whiter result than any other option like, say, when titanium dioxide is added to grey cement mixes.
Aalborg, the World's largest manufacturer of White Cement, is an Italian owned company, with six white cement manufacturing sites around the world. The Aalborg White® we are selling is made in their Malaysian plant. in a modern State of the Art facility to the highest European Standards. The key advantages of the Aalborg White® is its superior whiteness, uniform composition and performance. The Whiteness is a consistent 92% and there is none higher in the NZ market. Aalborg have a reputation for consistency second to none and are the largest global exporter of white cement for good reason. There is an natural fit with the brand values of Peter Fell. The following picture shows the comparative mortar shades of the Aalborg vs the other white cements on the market - clearly the whitest. (We can assure you we have not tampered with this picture, or the products in anyway)
SuperWhite and SuperWhite Plus are not recommended for use on flatwork (floors, patios drives, etc), unless they are going to be ground/honed. This is because the concrete finishing process can darken the surface and colour variations are possible.
However if grinding then careful choosing of both the sand and the aggregate is required as this will affect final colour. Using special sand and aggregate can make the concrete expensive so check with your local concrete supplier on options.
