Cimencam is the oldest existing cement factory in Cameroon. The company is 33% owned by the Cameroonian government, 2% owned by Cameroonian individuals and 55% owned by a foreign company called Maroc Afrique.
The objective of Cimencam, is to be the leading producer of construction materials in Cameroon. To achieve this, they are constantly innovating and creating better products and services for the Cameroonian market.
On Friday August 30th, Cimencam launched a new product called ‘Sublime‘ via an exquisite white-themed party, with all the company’s stakeholders at the luxury hotel La Falaise in Bonapriso; Douala.
Sublime is White Cement, made in Cameroon, by Cameroonians, with international standards.
Some of the qualities include:
-Aesthetics: in using white cement to build/construct, you wouldn’t need to paint, because the white cement gives an extra glamourous finishing. You have the liberty to change its colour at will just by the addition of pigments with your preferred colour.
-It fosters isothermal processes, meaning heat cannot be transfered through it. It has the ability to maintain a certain constant temperature for environs within it.
-It can resist a temperature of up to 300 degrees unlike normal grey cement which lasts only up to 150 degrees. So in the case of a fire, the risk of collapse is low.
-It is economical: with this white cement, you don’t need to paint or re-paint. When dirty, you simple wash away with water.
-It’s packaging was made with a water proof material that can resist heavy rainfall, and can last for up to five days in a humid environment. So there is no fear of products getting damaged because of wettable packaging. The packaging also has a QR code, which you can scan on cimencam’s website for all necessary information of the product.
