  • Production of Blastfurnace Cement

    Blastfurnace Cement is a special blend of two components; ground granulated blastfurnace slag (GGBS) and portland cement (OPC). GGBS is a by-product of the iron-making process in a blastfurnace. It is produced by the rapid water-quenching of the molten slag under controlled conditions. This granulation process yields sand-sized particles of highly glassy material of high

  • What is low heat cement?

    Hydration of cement is an exothermic process that produces large quantity of heat. In mass concrete structures such as dams, retaining walls, bridge abutment, raft and etc. the rate of dissipation of heat of hydration from the surface is much lower than that generated. It causes rise in temperature inside the concrete mass and may
