Lafarge NewCem® slag cement is a finely ground, granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS), a product of the iron-making process. Through our extensive distribution system, NewCem is available for blending with conventional portland cement at the concrete plant to produce high-quality, durable concrete. Slag is produced during the iron-manufacturing process. During the manufacturing process the materials are heated in a blast furnace to a molten state. The slag rises to the top and is separated from the iron for further processing. When slag is separated from iron and rapidly cooled with water...

Advantages of Lafarge NewCem® Slag Cement Strength When properly used, NewCem can increase the 28-day strength of the concrete by 5 to 25 percent. The highest strength increases are found when the replacement level approaches 50 percent. High strength for concrete subjected to repeated flexural loads is critical for the long-term service life of highways, roads and airfield runways. NewCem provides strength and enhances the placeability and finishing characteristics of low-slump concrete. NewCem can also improve the consistency of concrete strengths. Most fluctuations in concrete strengths...

One of the special designs employed in the FBI building was for a very high-strength blast wall. The concrete producer used a mix of 50 percent NewCem...

Product Data CROP PANEL AT 7-3/4” WIDE Properties of “Fresh Concrete” – NewCem® Slag Cement Water Requirements: Concrete mixes containing NewCem will require about the same amount of water for a given slump as concrete containing only portland cement. Air Content: The use of NewCem as a partial replacement for portland cement will not appreciably change the dosage rate requirements of air entraining agents. When changing mix ingredients, it is recommended to check dosage rates and adjust if necessary. Bleeding: The bleeding characteristics of concrete containing NewCem will not be...
