Our cement solutions
High early strength cements for precasters: boosting worksite productivity
LafargeHolcim has developed an advanced range of high early strength cements to help precasters build faster and in a more efficient way. Our cements are an economic solution to improve worksite productivity: thanks to their specific formula, precasters benefit from faster demolding times and increased cycles. Their rapid hardening properties also allow fast concreting, even in cold weather, on major infrastructure projects (airports, roads).
Lime, a versatile solution for ancient building renovation and more
LafargeHolcim’s lime is the product of choice for old construction repairing: white in color, it can be mixed with pigments, additives and colored aggregates to mimic the finishes of ancient buildings while providing good workability. Our lime products can also be suitable for the specific needs of other industries and applications, such as soil stabilization, mining, steel and paper, or agriculture.
Green low CO2 cements enhancing the environmental performance of buildings and infrastructure
LafargeHolcim offers cements with less clinker and lower CO2 emissions, but with high level mechanical performance and great workability. They can contribute to the achievement of world-class environmental certifications (LEED®, BREEAM® and HQE®), for all types of constructions and infrastructure, including large structures with very specific requirements, such as stadiums, bridges, dams, high-rise buildings, etc.
Limestone filler: rich, yet cost-effective, for construction and non-construction use
Finely ground in our cement and aggregates quarries, LafargeHolcim’s limestone filler solutions are a cost-effective and high quality answer to the specific needs of our customers from various industries: whiteness to improve quality for the paper industry, purity and calcium level for animal feed and fertilizing purposes, and particle size distribution for asphalt and concrete manufacturers.
Oil and gas well cements bring consistency and high performance for successful drilling
LafargeHolcim provides a wide range of state-of-the-art API certified cements characterized by consistent quality, the latest innovations and unmatched supply chain execution for worldwide availability. Our oil and gas cement solutions also ensure high sulfate resistance, adjustable density, mechanical resistance, predictable setting and pumping time, as well as water tightness for drilling operations.
Ultra fine, white, sulfate resisting cements: our solutions for each infrastructure project
Every infrastructure project is different, and each client has different expectations of cements. This is why LafargeHolcim has brought together a series of high level cements for specific applications that can meet each project’s requirements:
- Ultrafine products for cost-effective repairs and water ingress prevention
- White cements to create unique architectural designs
- Sulfate-resisting cements for applications subject to sulfate attack or seawater: ports, sewage treatment structures, underground structures, etc.
Cements for road and stabilization
Road construction and soil remediation require specific cements with longer setting and hardening time properties. LafargeHolcim has specially developed a range of cements and binders that bring strength and soil compatibility to roads and soil applications. Our solutions require less road layer thickness, thus generating savings in raw materials and reducing the overall cost of projects.
Masonry cements and mortars for improved plastering quality and more efficient construction
Suitable for many construction applications, roof tiling, rendering, and brick or block laying, LafargeHolcim’s masonry cements and mortars are easier to work and offer reliable plastering quality and better finish with fewer hollows. The result: quicker and cleaner worksites, lower construction cost, and more efficient operations. They also incorporate low clinker content, thus contributing to a reduction in buildings’ carbon footprint.
Full range of quality-assured cements for ready mix manufacturers
LafargeHolcim provides a full range of bulk Portland cements for civil engineering, building applications, ready-mixed concrete, and concrete products. Our cements are quality-assured with independent third-party certification and guarantee compatibility with the most advanced admixtures for satisfactory placing and effective curing.
