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 highly demanding projects. Carmeuse offers a large range of products, satisfying clients’ needs, independent of any trends.
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. They are very consistent in moisture absorption, facilitating the production from semi-dry concrete to self-compacting-concrete. In addition, they bring 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. The bright colour of the concrete end-product is often highly appreciated by customers, creating opportunities for its use in architectural concrete.
