Cement & Lime

What is Cement? 

Cement is a fine powder that is used as a binding agent and is usually mixed with an aggregate such as sand or gravel to create a mortar, concrete, render and screed. At Howarth Timber & Building Supplies, we have a wide variety of cement options available, including: 

  • Multicem. A general-purpose cement with a long shelf-life and creates a finish that is resilient against frost; 
  • PostFix. Used as a long-term solution to fix concrete posts into the ground, there are various types available including rapid setting options; 
  • Trowel Mastic. Used to point wooden and metal door and window frames; 
  • Plasterer’s Stabilising Primer. Prime and stabilise an internal surface to prepare it for new plaster (suitable for new walls, as well as ones that have been plastered before); 
  • Rapid Set Cement. These are ideal for situations where a normal cement is not suitable, perhaps because you need a quick fix or it’s an area that needs to be waterproof as quickly as possible 
  • Fire Cement. Ideal for commercial and domestic use in areas that will be exposed to high temperatures including flue pipes, boilers, and fire bricks. 
  • Sand and Cement Mix. Pre-mixed to save time, you just need to add water as this removes the need to work out ratios; 
  • Hydrated Lime. Added to cement that is to be used on external applications, Lime builds up the water retention; 
  • Macadam. Use this as a temporary fix for driveways and paths, until a long-term repair can be performed; 
  • Self-Levelling Compound. Smooth out surfaces that are uneven, prior to applying tiles onto walls or flooring 
  • Concrete Hardener & Dustproofer. This one is self-explanatory; however, dust proofing is essential to prevent tiny particles causing major problems in the future.
