Portland cement is a type of cement, not a brand name. Many cement manufacturers make Portland cement.

Type 1 Cement:

Normal Portland cement. Type 1 is general use cement.

Type 2 Cement:

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.

Type 4 Cement:

Low heat Portland cement. Used where the amount and rate of heat generation must be kept to a minimum.

Type 5 Cement:

Sulfate resistant Portland cement. Used where the water or soil is high in alkali.

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.
