Ultraval quick-setting cement is ideal for quick repairs during reconstruction and catastrophe relief work. It can also withstand corrosion in salt-bearing soil. Ultraval, one of the most advanced products of Cementos Portland Valderrivas, is the result of in-house innovation and development.

In this way, Cementos Portland Valderrivas expresses its solidarity with the people of Lorca who were affected by the major earthquake last Wednesday, and contributes one of its most innovative products to repair the buildings and infrastructure that were damaged by the quake.

This quick-setting cement is being used to build the Basque high-speed railway network and in Spanish airports, since it combines a short setting time with high mechanical strength.
