More about PLC

PLC can be used as a replacement for Portland Cement (PC) and meet the requirements for Design Chemical Classes  one and two. PLC can’t be blended with GGBS or PFA to meet the requirements for Design Chemical Classes three & four. The fresh properties of PLC produced concrete are similar to that of a PC produced concrete.

Good site practice

A risk assessment should be carried out before commencing any work It’s recommended trials are undertaken when using a new type of cement. Samples and technical support are available on request for trial work.
To maintain strength, water/ cement ratio should be kept low and admixtures should be used to achieve the required workability.
Concrete should be placed by experienced contractors who have the correct training
