EcoStrong PLC - Type IL Cement
A HIGH PERFORMANCE AND SUSTAINABLE MATERIAL SOLUTION USED IN CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION AND PRODUCTS IS LAUCHED FROM PROGRESS AND INNOVATION TO REDUCE CO2 EMISSIONS.
THE WHAT AND WHY FOR ECOSTRONG
Argos is committed to continuing its efforts to deliver outstanding solutions and sustainable products to its customers. One result from this focus is our Portland Limestone Cement (PLC) -Type IL product, which is entitled to the brand name EcoStrong PLC due to its benefits and performance characteristics. This product is a high-quality blended hydraulic cement used in sustainable building practices to reduce carbon emissions by up to 10% while providing on the mandate for high strengths. EcoStrong PLC exhibits Argos’ passion for developing strong solutions to build a more sustainable world together and contributes to the ultimate goal of decarbonization across our operations.
Engineered to reduce the harmful CO2 effects on the environment and perform similar to or better than our Portland Cement type l/ll, it is the obvious product choice for a basis of design. EcoStrong PLC empowers our customers, specifiers, architects, and engineers to create and execute their projects with resilience and sustainability.
APPLICATIONS AND SCMs
EcoStrong PLC is the ideal substitute for all type l/ll applications. Ready-mixed concrete, precast and concrete products, bridge decks, grouts, soil stabilization, full-depth reclamation (FDR), concrete masonry units, etc.
SCMs (supplementary cementitious materials), like fly ash or slag, further help lower the carbon footprint of your concrete. Incidentally, in many cases (source-dependent) results show that when SCMs are used in concrete mixes, EcoStrong PLC has been found to generate synergies in the curing processes that produce 1-10% higher 28-day strengths than the same type l/ll mix. EcoStrong PLC Type IL cement meets ASTM C595, AASHTO M 240 and ASTM C1157 GU.
