Description:

Dragon is the sole distributor of NewCem Slag in Maine. NewCem is produced by Blue Circle cement at their production facility in Sparrows Point, MD. It is a finely ground, granulated blast-furnace slag, manufactured from the by product of an iron blast furnace.

Specification for NewCem is covered under ASTM C989 and ASSHTO M-302 "Standard Specification for Ground Iron Blast-Furnace Slag for Use in Concrete and Mortars." Under both specifications, NewCem is made to meet the specification requirements of Grade 120 which assures high uniform strengths.

These specifications are primarily related to strength performance of a 50% - 50% blend of NewCem and portland cement as compared to portland cement C109 mortar cubes. The specification AASHTO-240M) may also be applicable when the cement and NewCem are pre-blended or blended manually for compliance testing prior to or during the period of its use. Under the Specification 595, the blends should be tested according to the blends proposed or used on the job. Compliance with the specifications allows the slag blend to be between 25% and 70% of the total cementitious materials
