Understanding Your Market Needs
Concrete producers are always looking for reliable suppliers of aggregates and limestone fillers. Consistency for each product is a top priority, but service must be guaranteed as well, especially in high season or for very demanding projects. Carmeuse offers a large range of products, thus satisfying clients’ needs independent of the situation.
Filler materials are increasingly popular. They are also becoming very important, because they help to increase some of the mix properties in concrete. Moreover they reduce the need to use binders, which are usually more expensive. Some certified products are recognized as supplementary cementitious materials, allowing concrete producers to reduce their cement consumption and carbon footprint.
Solutions to Meet Your Needs
Calcitec® and PremiaCal® are a milled high-calcium limestone. Produced in an environmentally friendly way, this limestone is very consistent in moisture absorption. So it facilitates the production of everything from semi-dry concrete to self-compacting-concrete. It also brings added value for precast and ready-mix concrete in the fresh state, thanks to increased flowability and pumpability, which are helped by the product’s constant water absorption. Customers often appreciate the bright color of concrete end-products, so there are opportunities for these products to be used in architectural concrete.
