Cement That Performs: Highway

Type I: General Use

Type II: Moderate Sulfate Resistance

In the United States, Lafarge and Holcim have 13 plants that produce more than 22 million tons of cement every year, as well as two grinding stations for slag cement.

From our quarries, limestone and other raw materials are mined and then processed at the plant through a series of crushing, grinding and firings in our kilns, in which temperatures reach up to 2700 degrees Fahrenheit. Integral to our process at each plant are laboratories that monitor the quality of production through chemical and physical testing.
