The rate at which cement prices in Nigeria change these days without prior notice, concerned Engineers, Builders Quantity Surveyors and Developers are left with no other option than to follow the trend of cost fluctuations so as to keep tenders and quotations current. This is because, most of the houses constructed in Nigeria make use of a good number of cement bags from Sub structure to Super structure and this therefore contribute a reasonable quota in the cost of building projects today.

In the Nigerian Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry, the most popular cement produced by top cement manufacturing companies in Nigeria is the Ordinary Portland Cement and it is mostly used as a masonry adhesive or binding material in combination with fine and coarse aggregates in a given mix ratio to reduce cost of Mortar used for molding, laying of blocks, plastering of walls etc or in Concrete for casting of beams, columns, slabs, pavements, embankments, etc.

It is important you know the Grade of the cement you intend to buy so that you can achieve the required result. The grade shows the minimum Compressive strength (N/mm2 or MPa) attainable by the cement after 28 days of setting. The standard grades for Odinary Portland Cement (OPC) is Grade 43 and Grade 53 which are obtained by grinding and mixing OPC Clinker alongside little amount of Gypsum.

Most Nigerian cement brands meet up with the grading requirement. For example, a 50kg bag of Dangote cement has a grading score of 42.5-grade cement, its BlocMaster, the premium high strength Portland limestone cement in particular attains up to 50mpa in compressive strength after 28 days.
Other cement producers like Ibeto and Bua group also meet up with the 42.5-grade minimum standard for general purpose use as stipulated by Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON). It is necessary to check for the quality of cements before you make an order for retail or wholesale supplies. Don’t forget to also check if the cement has expired or not.
