Vicat is one of the world's largest cement producers, with a remarkable history that dates back to the early invention of cement.

Seeking a more robust and quick-setting material, French engineer Louis Vicat found inspiration in the ancient Romans' use of lime, pozzolana, and water. Developing his theory on hydraulicity and combining clays with limestone, the world's first artificial cement was produced, which remains the basis of modern Portland Cement today. Decades later, Joseph Vicat continued his father's work and added to the family legacy with the invention of Prompt Natural Cement. Manufactured from a single raw material from a deposit located in the Chartreuse massif, this unique material is still produced using the same process defined by Joseph Vicat and is currently the only natural cement industrially manufactured worldwide. At Cornish Lime, we proudly stock Vicat products, knowing that the Vicat name is synonymous with delivering a superior-quality product every time.
