Supplementary Cementitious Materials
Supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) may be used to partially replace the portland cement content of a product either individually or in combination with other SCMs to improve your concrete’s sustainability, performance and long-term durability. In addition to enhancing the physical properties of the concrete, SCMs are often recycled byproducts of industrial processes. By using these byproducts as SCMs, we’re contributing to sustainable construction initiatives that preserve our environment for future generations.
Portland Type I, II and I/II Cement
Argos portland cement is a high quality, cost-effective basic building material used in virtually all forms of construction, from hospitals and homes to schools, tunnels and airports. Argos portland cement meets or exceeds all applicable chemical and physical requirements of ASTM C150 and AASHTO M 85.
These portland cements are typically considered general-purpose cements and are most often used for general construction purposes, such as precast concrete products, reinforced buildings, floors, sewers, bridges, and pavements. Portland Type I/II and II offer moderate sulfate resistance; Portland Type I/II MH and II MH offer moderate sulfate resistance and heat of hydration properties.
Type IL Portland-Limestone Cement
Argos Type IL is a hydraulic, blended portland-limestone cement that is more environmentally friendly than regular portland cements. It has equal or better performance compared to Type I/II portland cement. Argos Type IL portland-limestone cement meets or exceeds all applicable chemical and physical requirements of ASTM C595, ASTM C1157 and AASHTO M 240.
Portland Type III Cement
Portland Type III cement is a high early strength cement, most often used in construction applications where it is critical to maximize compressive strength during the first 24 hours. Argos portland Type III cement meets or exceeds all applicable chemical and physical requirements of ASTM C150 and AASHTO M 85.
White Portland Cement
Argos white portland cement is a rich and beautiful unblended shade, formulated to produce an ideal concrete finish with great uniformity and lasting aesthetic appeal. If your project involves architectural concrete, white cement may be an excellent option to meet your needs and specifications. Argos white portland cement meets or exceeds all applicable chemical and physical requirements of ASTM C150 and AASHTO M 85.
