FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

Q :

What is Carpet Area, Built-Up Area & Super Built Up Area?

A :

Carpet area is generally considered as the usable area in exclusive possession of a person which will also include lavatory block, door jambs etc. It is measured from finished wall to finished wall above the skirting for rooms and above the dado in case of lavatory block.
Built-up area
can be defined as the carpet area plus the area of the walls.
Super-built up area
includes the built-up area plus common areas, such as, staircases and lift-rooms.

 

 

Q :

What is Cement?

A :

Cement can be defined as an inorganic chemical powder possessing excellent adhesive and cohesive properties that enable it to bond with other materials in presence of water. 

 

 

Q :

What are the raw materials used for manufacturing of Cement?

A :

The main constituents of cement are  Limestone, Al. Laterite /  Iron ore, Gypsum and Coal.

 

 

Q :

Which cement should I purchase for constructing the house?

A :

Ordinary Portland Cement (Eg. OPC  53 grade)) is the best cement in terms of strength and performance. However, you can also opt for OPC 43 grade cement for house construction.

 

 

Q :

How Bhavya Cement is better than other cements?

A :

Q :

What is 'setting time' of Cement? What are the factors that affect the setting time?

A :

When water is mixed with cement, the paste formed remains plastic for a short time. During this period it is possible to mould it as per requirement. As the reaction between water and cement continues, the paste looses its plasticity and we cannot mould it. This early period in the hardening of Cement is referred as "Setting of Cement". Generally setting time of cement depends upon various factors, such as, the type of cement, presence of certain types of salts, chemicals in sand, percentage of water, availability of ambient temperature etc. In winters, the setting time of cement is longer due to low temperature.

 

 

 

 

Q :

Why Gypsum is added while manufacturing of cement?

A :

Gypsum alters the setting time of cement. If gypsum is not added, cement will set immediately and it cannot be used for making concrete/mortar. Hence to make it workable, gypsum is added.

 

 

Q :

What is Soundness of Cement and state its significance?

A :

It is very important that after the setting time, cement should not undergo any appreciable change in volume. If it does, it is called unsound cement. This will cause serious difficulty for the durability of structure when such cement is used. The unsoundness of cement is due to the presence of excess lime, high proportion of magnesia content or calcium sulphate content. It is therefore advisable to purchase cement from reputed manufacturers like Bhavya Cements Ltd. where the manufacturing is done using state-of-the-art equipment and stringent quality control measures.

 

 

Q :

Is there any relation between Strength and Colour of cement?

A :

No, Colour of cement depends on the raw material used while manufacturing. Colour may vary from factory to factory.

 

 

Q :

What is meant by Curing of Concrete ?

A :

Curing is the name given to the procedures for promoting the hydration of cement. Curing is done to make the concrete mixture stronger and more durable.

It is generally done for a minimum of seven days or until concrete reaches 70% of its specified strength. Commencement of curing depends on ambient temperature. Higher the ambient temperature, commence curing earlier.

 

 

Q :

What is meant by Durability of Concrete ?

A :

The concrete structure should continue to perform at it's required strength and service ability during the specified or expected service life. The durability of concrete refers to the extent to which the material is capable of resisting deterioration caused by exposure to service conditions. Generally speaking, concrete is strong and fireproof. Additionally, ordinary structural concrete that is to be exposed to the elements must be watertight and weather-resistant. Concrete that is subject to wear, such as floor slabs and pavements, must be capable of resisting abrasion.
