Shivam Cement becomes the first brand in Nepal to produce 43 grade OPC
Shivam Cement has become the first and only brand in Nepal to produce 43 grade OPC cement. Recently, the Department of Quality and Measurement has certified NS-572 and given permission to Shivam to produce 43 grade cement. Shivam Cement, which was awarded the NS Quality Award 2019 for the first time in this sector, has become the first and only brand in Nepal to produce 43 grade cement.
Cement was earlier certified NS-49 by the Nepal Department of Quality and Measurement. The cement produced was available in the market without mentioning any grade. The Department of Quality and Measurement, which has been recognizing the production and sale-distribution as per the standards of NS 49 in Nepal, has taken forward the task of measuring the quality of cement from the grading system with the concept of NS-572 with the objective of ensuring high quality of cement.
Now, it is mandatory for any cement manufacturers to certify NS-572 to produce and sell 43 grade cement. For this, the Nepal Department of Quality and Measurement conducts long-term testing of limestone, raw materials, production process, produced clinker and cement at various levels and also tests and certifies the quality on the basis of lab tests.
The cement industry established in Hetauda in 2009 has been producing and selling high quality clinker and Shivam Cement and Shivam Plus Cement have been using its own limestone from the state-of-the-art German technology plant.
Due to its high quality, continuous service and reliability, Shivam Cement has become the most trusted and preferred genuine OPC cement by the customers. Nepal Quality Mark 572, 49 and ISI, URS certified ISO certified Shivam Cement has been providing continuous services and facilities in Nepal.
