Packaged Products - Markets We Serve
Building & Construction
Boral Cement's primary markets for packaged products are the building and construction industries of NSW, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, ACT and Queensland.
Products are used to produce mortars, concretes, renders and grouts for use in commercial, industrial and housing developments. Markets are serviced through our network of resellers, including sand & soil yards, building suppliers, hardware stores, fencing and plumbers supply outlets.
With the evolution of influential and educational DIY shows now firmly entrenched in peoples lives, the DIY market in Australia continues to grow at a healthy rate. This trend has resulted in the growth of user friendly cement based products requiring often just the addition of water and mixing to provide a trade quality product for the backyard project.
Freedom of information on the Internet and access to project sheets detailing material, tools and advice on how the project should be undertaken, further fuels the interest of the DIY enthusiast.
Cement is a key component in precast concrete manufacturing. Boral Cement manufactures a wide range of cements for this market, such as sulphate resistant, high early strength and off white cement. Our extensive range of oxides provide Architectural Concrete colours which mirror the earthly colours and textures of Australia which can add unique and creative alternatives to concrete panels.
Specialised high purity graded sands and gravels are processed by Boral Cement for various filtration markets, including major potable water treatment plants, sewage treatment plants, industrial treatment plants and domestic pool filters for backyard swimming pools. The filter sand captures suspended solids within the water being filtered and removes them through backwashing.
This market sector calls for specialist products designed for specific applications and must take into consideration factors such as safety and pumpability under ground.
