Products The company tailors its products and services to suit customers’ specific needs, from home construction, improvement and renovation to agricultural, industrial and marine/hydraulic applications. Cement: The company manufactures cement through a closely controlled chemical process, which begins with the mining and crushing of limestone and clay, and in some instances, other raw materials. The clay and limestone are then pre-homogenized, a process which consists of combining different types of clay and limestone. The mix is typically dried, then fed into a grinder which grinds the various materials in preparation for the kiln. For cement limestone, clay and gypsum, the company runs chemical tests to prepare the mining plan of the quarry, to confirm material quality and reduce variations in the mineral content. As of December 31, 2015, 55 of the company’s 56 operative production plants used the dry process and 1 used the wet process. Types of Cement Gray Ordinary Portland Cement: The company’s gray ordinary Portland cement primarily comprises clinker, that meets applicable chemical and physical requirements and is used in various construction segments, such as residential, commercial, industrial, and public infrastructure. White Portland Cement: The company manufactures white Portland cement with limestone, low iron content kaolin clay, and gypsum. Customers use its white Portland cement in architectural works requiring brightness and artistic finishes, to create mosaics and artificial granite, and for sculptural casts and other applications where white prevails. Masonry or Mortar: Masonry or mortar is a Portland cement that the company mixes with finely ground inert matter (limestone). Its customers use this type of cement for multiple purposes, including concrete blocks, templates, road surfaces, finishes, and brick work. Oil-Well Cement: The company’s oil-well cement is a specially designed variety of hydraulic cement produced with gray Portland clinker. It usually forges slowly and is manageable at high temperatures and pressures. Produced in classes from A to H and J, its oil-well cement is applicable for different depth, chemical aggression, or pressure levels. Blended Cement: Blended hydraulic cements are produced by inter-grinding or blending portland cement and supplementary cementitious materials, such as ground granulated blast furnace slag, fly ash, silica fume, calcined clay, hydrated lime, and other pozzolans. It offers an array of blended cements, which have a lower CO2 footprint resulting from their lower clinker content due to the addition of supplementary cementitious materials. Ready-Mix Concrete The company tailors its ready-mix concrete to fit its clients’ specific needs. It also uses additives to customize its concrete consistent with the transportation time from its plant to the project, weather conditions at the construction site, and the project’s specifications. The company offers a special ready-mix concrete portfolio comprised of products, such as ultra-rapid hardening concrete, crack-resistant/low shrinkage concrete, self-consolidating concrete, architectural concrete, pervious concrete, and various others. The types of ready-mix concrete the company offers to its clients include standard ready-mix concrete, architectural and decorative concrete, rapid-setting concrete, fiber-reinforced concrete, fluid-fill concrete, roller-compacted concrete, self-consolidating concrete, pervious concrete, and antibacterial concrete. Aggregates The company supplies aggregates, primarily the crushed stone, sand and gravel, used in all forms of construction. Its customers use its aggregates for various app
