Portland Type I/II Cement

Portland Type I/II cement is typically considered a general-purpose cement and is most often used for general construction purposes, such as precast concrete products, reinforced buildings, floors, sewers, bridges, and pavements. Argos portland Type I/II cement provides a moderate sulfate resistance to exceed the applicable ASTM and AASHTO chemical and physical requirements, ASTM C150 and AASHTO M 85.

Portland Type IL Cement

Argos portland Type IL is a blended portland limestone cement that permits an interblending of naturally occurring limestone to a maximum allowance of 15 percent. Type IL cements are more environmentally friendly than portland cements and have very similar performance to portland Type I/II cements. Argos Type IL uses a 10 percent limestone blend for a sustainable building solution that also significantly reduces our carbon footprint. Argos portland Type IL cement meets ASTM C595, AASHTO M 240 and ASTM C1157.
