Why PLC

Same durability.
Same resilience.
Up to 10% carbon footprint reduction.

*

Portland-limestone cement is engineered with a higher limestone content. PLC (Type IL) gives specifiers, architects, engineers, producers, and designers a greener way to execute any structure, paving, or geotech project, with virtually no modifications to mix design or placing procedures. All while maintaining the resilience and sustainability you’ve come to expect from portland cement concrete.

 

*Typically, PLC can reduce your carbon footprint by 10%.

About Portland-Limestone Cement

Tested & Proven

Decades of research, testing, and use by cement manufacturers, ready mix producers, and builders prove PLC performs as well as portland cement.

1:1 Replacement & Performance

Same mixing and handling. Same strength and durability. If you work with cement and concrete, you already know how to work with PLC.

Applications & Uses

Structures. Bridges. Paving. Geotech. Anywhere you use ordinary portland cement, you can use PLC.

Worldwide Acceptance

US, Canadian, and European standards define and support PLC's global usage.
