Lafarge blended cements are a blend of portland cement and a combination of any one or more supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs), such as ground granulated blast furnace slag, silica fume, or fly ash. Blended cements offer sustainable and performance advantages for those who build and occupy structures of all kinds. The growing use of supplementary cementitious material blended portland cements is due in part to numerous performance factors, including low permeability, resistance to chlorides and sulfates, mitigation of alkali silica reaction, greater strength, lower temperatures for mass concrete, and improved workability.
Lafarge blended cements are used in high-performance applications where enhanced strength and durability properties are required, as well as in general-use applications. The use of cementitious blends not only results in stronger, more durable high-performance concretes, but also helps reduce global climate impact by lowering energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
Lafarge blended cements provides a significant contribution to sustainable construction. Their use in concrete production consumes less energy and offers improved efficiency and building performance. Blended cements can contribute to the achievement of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points.
