Is used for structures in water or soil containing moderate amounts of sulfate, or when heat build-up is a concern.

Type 3 Cement:

High early strength. Used when high strength are desired at very early periods.

Types IA, IIA and IIIA are cements used to make air-entrained concrete. They have the same properties as types I, II, and III, except that they have small quantities of air-entrained materials combined with them.
