Tercem 3000®

Strength, durability and reduced permeability.

For designs requiring the most stringent levels of strength and durability, Tercem 3000® Blended Hydraulic Cement has been used since 1998. A ternary cement manufactured using Portland cement, granulated blast furnace slag, and silica fume, Tercem dramatically densifies concrete – minimizing its permeability.

Discovery its Benefits

Superior 28-day strength. Tercem 3000 is a ternary cement blend that has been optimized to offer truly exceptional strength and durability.

Improved durability and reduced permeability. The materials in Tercem 3000 work synergistically to produce concrete that has:

  • Superior strength
  • Increased resistance to alkali aggregate reaction,
  • Increased resistance to sulfate attack
  • Reduced permeability

Tercem 3000 shows good freeze-thaw resistance when tested in accordance with ASTM C-666 and good deicer salt scaling resistance when tested in accordance with ASTM C 672.

Reduced impact on the environment. Provides a significant contribution to sustainable construction. The use of supplementary cementitious material in concrete production consumes less energy and offers improved efficiency and building performance. These materials can also be used to help achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points in the USGBC's (U.S. Green Building Council) LEED program.
