New Cement and Concrete Products - What is Here Now; May Be in the Near Future; and Not Yet on the Radar Screen

Presented By: Mark Luther - Senior Technical Service Engineer, LafargeHolcim.

About the Topic

This presentation will review the relatively recent developments for cementitious products including:

  • Portland cement with up to 5% limestone as an ingredient
  • Type IL blended cement
  • Type IT blended cement
  •  Combinations of blended-cement as a separate product

It will examine near-horizon cement and concrete products including:

  • CO2-activated cement
  • The selection of less-traditional pozzolans in blended cement
  • Very-high-strength and ultra-high-strength concrete products

It will explore the future conceptual uses of cements or concrete, such as pervious concrete wall backfill, and identify the dominant limitation of broader uses of new cementitious products.
