PSC

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, conforming to IS: 12089 standards for producing PSC. 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.

The multi-fold advantages of PSC

The multi-fold 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
Excellent resistance to Chloride & Sulphate attacks
Low risk of cracking
Improved workability
Better compatibility with all types of admixtures
Superior finish
Ease of pumping
Better resistance against alkali-silica reaction
Minimized shrinkage cracks

Maximum strength, low risk of cracking, improved workability, and superior finish are the advantages of PSC. Portland Slag Cement (PSC) is manufactured by either inter-grinding in the Portland cement clinker, Gypsum & Granulated Slag or blending the Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS) with Ordinary Portland Cement by means of mechanical blenders. At JSW Cement, we use superior quality slag produced at our steel manufacturing plant, conforming to IS: 12089 standards for producing PSC. It is created with a combination of 45- 50% slag, 45% – 50% clinker, and 3-5% gypsum. PSC has been voted as the most suitable cement for concrete pavements, mass concrete applications, high performance or high strength concrete, structures and foundations, pre-cast concrete such as pipe & block, concrete exposed to sea water and marine application.
