Ordinary Portland Cement (PSC) is one of the most popular building materials used all across the globe. There is a fascinating story behind the naming of this widely used cement product. The name ‘Portland’ was given by the British cement manufacturer, Joseph Aspdin in 1824, due to its strong resemblance to Portland Stone, a type of white grey limestone found in the isle of Portland, Dorset in England. Joseph Aspdin is also credited to have patented the first true artificial cement, which he named as the Portland cement.
