Use and Limitations

Lafarge manufactures all products in accor- dance with strict QA/QC (quality assurance and quality control) procedures to ensure optimum product performance and uniformity. However, there are many variables that affect concrete performance that are beyond the control of the cement manufacturer. Good concreting prac- tices in accordance with the American Concrete Institute, The National Building Code, Provin- cial, Municipal and other local building codes are required to achieve desired results. Skilled persons should use these products with special attention given to formwork, batching, mixing, placing, finishing and curing. In most applica- tions, quality aggregates, admixtures and addi- tives should be utilized. For detailed informa- tion, contact your Lafarge sales office.
