CEMENT BASED PRODUCTS
The HSE has identified the small amount of soluble Chromium VI that naturally appears in grey Portland cement as the element that stimulates an allergic dermatological reaction in some people that results in “cement burns”. Legislation now requires manufacturers to keep levels of soluble chromium VI below 2 parts per million of the total dry weight of the cement content. White cement/sulphate resisting cement and cement fondu all have contents below this level and are
naturally compliant. Ordinary Portland cement however needs to be treated to achieve these levels. All materials supplied by Tilemaster Adhesives Ltd are compliant or have been treated to meet HSE compliancy during the stated shelf life on the packaging. Bags must be stored unopened in clean, dry conditions, off the ground above 5ºC and in a well-ventilated area.
Use of treated products after the shelf life time may increase the risk of an allergic reaction.
Cementitious mixes may contain relatively sharp and angular aggregates and are therefore relatively abrasive when wet. Newly applied product is also very alkaline.
