Lafarge Cement, part of Aggregate Industries, has created TerraCem, the UK’s first hydraulic road binder for use in soil stabilisation.
TerraCem is as a quick hardening hydraulic road binder, designed to strengthen existing onsite material, with no need to import aggregates.
It is specifically engineered using sustainable binder technology, which will improve soils and strengthen weak substructure layers to create a working platform.
It will also offer reduced embodied carbon, in comparison to traditional cement stabilisation.
Clive Grudgings, Lafarge Cement Commercial Director, said the company’s focus on research and development, together with customer led insight and feedback, resulted in the launch of TerraCem.
“Designed to maximise site efficiency and reduce overall environmental impact, stabilising with TerraCem is as simple a process as conventional stabilisation with cement,” he said.
