Discover its Benefits
Strength: When properly used, NewCem has been shown to increase the 28-day strength of concrete. NewCem provides strength and enhances the placeability and finishing characteristics of low-slump concrete. (Individual mix results will vary)
NewCem can increase the durability of concrete by:
- Improving resistance to sulfate attack
- Mitigating alkali silica reactions
- Reducing concrete permeability
- Helping control heat of hydration effects in mass concrete
NewCem’s ability to dramatically increase the durability of concrete makes it an ideal ingredient for high-performance concrete. Many state DOTs have specified NewCem for their high-performance concrete mixes.
The use of NewCem in concrete production consumes less energy and offers improved efficiency and building performance. NewCem, as a recycled material, may help achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points in the USGBC's (U.S. Green Building Council) and CaGBC’s (Canada Green Building Council) LEED programs.
