"Through our wide range of future-ready, superior quality green products, we meet the evolving demands of the construction industry in India," avers Lopamudra Sengupta, Vice President (Technical services) JSW cement

Portland Slag Cement (PSC)
PSC is a blended cement confirming to IS 455:2015. It is most suitable for residential, commercial and industrial projects. At JSW Cement, we use superior quality slag produced at our steel-manufacturing plants, along with clinker and gypsum to create PSC. PSC is produced by using technologically advanced roller press and vertical roller mill.

Characteristics of PSC
  • Longer life
  • Incomparable long term strength
  • Resistant to chemical attack
  • Less heat of hydration & reduced thermal cracks
  • Better surface for painting
  • Green Product
Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC)

OPC is one of the most widely used cement variants in general concrete construction work. At JSW Cement, we manufacture high-quality OPC conforming to the IS:269-2015 standard. JSW OPC can be used on its own or it can be blended with mineral admixtures, such as fly ash and GGBS at construction sites, using a highly efficient mixture, as per requirement. JSW OPC can be used for Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) works and precast structures.

Characteristics of OPC
  • High early strength
  • Quick setting properties
  • Faster De-shuttering of formwork
  • Proportion flexibility (Can be blended with mineral admixtures)
  • Increased speed of construction
Green Products from the House of JSW Cement

Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS)
The chemical composition of GGBS can result in the production of a unique supplementary cementetious product, which makes it perfect for structural concrete construction. It can be used as partial replacement of OPC in concrete production at Ready Mix Concrete (RMC) batching plants and site batching plants. Since it contributes towards sustainable concrete construction, GGBS is regarded as a ‘green’ building material. GGBS confirms to IS 16714:2018.

Characteristics of GGBS
  • Incomparable long term strength
  • Resistant to chemical attack
  • Longer life
  • Less heat of hydration & reduced thermal cracks
  • Proportion flexibility
  • Green Product
Concreel HD
Concreel HD confirming to IS 455: 2015 is an apt representation of JSW Cement’s vision of providing high-quality products while protecting the environment. It reduces carbon dioxide emissions, conserves natural resources & fuel, utilises industrial by-products. Its modified pore structure and superior cohesion make it ideal for strength-bearing applications such as beams, columns, slabs and foundations, and other generalised construction requirements.

Concreel HD is known as the cement with six strengths
  • Improved early and later strength
  • Superior cohesion
  • Quick setting
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Most durable in concrete mix
  • Green Product
