Cement, part of Aggregate Industries
, has launched TerraCem, a novel hydraulic road binder specially formulated for use in soil stabilisation. TerraCem has been designed as a rapid hardening hydraulic road binder to strengthen existing on-site material without the need to import aggregates. It is specifically engineered, using sustainable binder technology, to improve soils, strengthening weak substructure layers to create a working platform and offering reduced embodied carbon in comparison to traditional cement stabilisation.
Clive Grudgings, Lafarge Cement commercial director, said, “At Lafarge Cement our focus on research and development, combined with customer-led insight and feedback, has led to the launch of TerraCem: the first of our sector specific, bespoke binders. Designed to maximise site efficiency and reduce overall environmental impact, stabilising with TerraCem is as simple a process as conventional stabilisation with cement.”
