InterCem® is a blended cement that offers several consumer and production based benefits. From a final use phase perspective, InterCem® can help reduce required inventories for fly ash at ready mix locations as well as provide a high quality and consistent product that offers early strengths and workability.
Manufacturing InterCem® allows Lehigh Cement to offset clinker in the final cement product. Offsetting up to 30+% clinker in InterCem® cement results in direct reductions in the fuel and the resulting emissions that would’ve been used to manufacture the offset clinker. Intergrinding this material in our cement grinding mills provides the end users with the confidence and security knowing that the final product they receive undergoes strict QA/QC procedures; ensuring InterCem® meets and exceeds the market specifications. Using this waste material to create InterCem® also offsets the fly ash being landfilled or used as fill in reclamation programs. The ash and all its constituents are then ‘sealed’ inside the concrete made using InterCem®.
InterCem® provides resistance to sulfate attack comparable with HS cement and also provides resistance to Alkali Aggregate Reactivity (AAR). Standard applications are similar to GU; floors, building foundations, commercial concrete construction and soil stabilization.
