Portland Limestone Cement (PLC)... it's not coming. It is here!
Thursday, March 30, 2023 (3:00 PM - 6:00 PM) (EDT)
PLC is engineered with a higher limestone content, and gives specifiers, architects, engineers, producers, and designers a way to execute any project all while maintaining the resilience and sustainability of conventional portland cement concrete with up to 10% reduction in carbon footprint. PLC will soon be the dominant cement type in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This session will detail for specifiers not only what PLC is and its new dominance, but also the ramifications of it in your concrete structures and pavements.
