Portland Slag Cement

Portland Slag Cement, commonly known as PSC, is blended cement. Slag is, essentially, a non-metallic product comprising of more than 90% glass with silicates and alumino - silicates of lime. At JSW Cement, we use superior quality slag produced at our steel manufacturing plant. It is created with a combination of upto 45- 50% slag, 45% – 50% clinker, and 3-5% gypsum. PSC has been voted as the most suitable cement for mass construction because of its low heat of hydration.

Advantages of PSC

PSC’s inherent chemistry gives it several advantages over ordinary cement. Apart from being more environment-friendly, it offers;

  • Ultimate compressive strength
  • Low risk of cracking
  • Excellent resistance to Chloride & Sulphate attacks
  • Improved workability
  • Better compatibility with all types of admixtures
  • Superior finish
  • Ease of pumping
  • Better resistance against alkali-silica reaction
  • Minimised shrinkage cracks

Where PSC can be used?

  • All types of residential, commercial and industrial projects
  • Dams and other mass concrete works
  • Water retaining structures
  • Concrete roads and flyovers
  • Most suitable for marine constructions
  • Pre-cast concrete products
  • Foundations and piles construction
