Aluminious Cement ("Ciment Fondu") Pure or Mixed (Sand Cement)

Aluminious Cement ("Ciment Fondu") Pure or Mixed (Sand Cement)

SINCE the year 1920 the Compagnie de la Fonte électrique, at Bex, has been manufacturing an aluminous cement, which it has placed on the market under the name of Electro-Cement. This article, produced in accordance with the formulae of the French chemist Bied, has been subjected in Switzerland to various interesting uses, advantage being taken of its rapid and high mechanical resistance, with two or three days’ hardening, and its chemical unalterability in the presence of selenitic waters.
