Factory Produced Composite Cement
Composite cements are produced by inter-grinding or blending Portland cement and supplementary cementitious materials or secondary main constituents such as ground granulated blast furnace slag, fly ash, silica fume, calcined clay, hydrated lime, and other pozzolans.
The use of factory produced composite cement in ready-mix concrete reduces mixing water and bleeding, improves workability and finishing, inhibits sulfate attack and the alkali-aggregate reaction, and reduces the heat of hydration.
