33 Grade OPC
This cement is used for general civil construction work under normal environmental conditions. The compressive strength of cement after 28 days test as per BIS specification is 33 MPa. Due to low compressive strength, this cement is normally not used where high grade of concrete viz, M-20 and above is required. The availability of higher grades of OPC in the market impacts the usage of 33 grade OPC as these days 43 grade OPC is normally used for general construction work. This grade of cement is more useful for mass concreting and plain cement concreting and can also be used for plastering and single storied individual houses.
