Revolutionizing the construction industry yet again Tokyo Cement Company (Lanka) PLC introduces TOKYO SUPER +, a specially formulated Blended Hydraulic Cement with Fly Ash to provide greater strength and durability. Certified to deliver the highest strength in the 100-day strength test, the unique blend of this cement gains more strength with time, making it ideal for concreting. Furthermore, upcycling top grade Fly Ash, a waste by-product from coal power generation, makes TOKYO SUPER + the most sustainable and greenest cement to ever enter the Sri Lankan construction arena.
TOKYO SUPER +, the undisputed Green leader in the industry with highest ultimate strength, delivers a host of other benefits including sulphate resistance, thermal crack prevention, and long-term protection of steel reinforcements.
TOKYO SUPER + is proven to gain maximum compressive strength after 100 days and complies with the Sri Lanka Standard Institute’s SLS 1247:2015 Strength Class 42.5 N standard certification. In addition, TOKYO SUPER + also complies with EN Standard - BS EN 197-1: 2011 under the type of CEM IV/A (V) 42.5N – SR, the international strength class classification stipulated for many modern construction projects.
What makes TOKYO SUPER + the undisputed leader in Blended Hydraulic Cement category is its unique homogeneous mix that contains ‘Class F’ Fly Ash and high quality Ordinary Portland Cement to create a high-strength cementitious mortar. As a general-purpose cement this new product is suited for a wide range of applications and brings greater utility. The formula which becomes stronger as it ages delivers better workability compared with other alternatives owing to its smooth fly ash blend. The fine blend creates more refined pores in the concrete that makes it denser and compact, making it ideal for high-risers. This also reduces the rise of temperature in the concrete mix and prevents thermal cracking, making it the best choice for mass concreting.
The use of Fly Ash in Blended Hydraulic Cement makes it sulphate resistant, protects against chloride attacks, and shields against the carbonation and thereby degradation of the structural reinforcement; making it extremely durable in harsh conditions. Therefore, TOKYO SUPER + is the best solution for use in marine or marshy environments, constructions underwater or on land prone to flooding, on soils containing higher levels of Sulphate or Chloride and for structures exposed to varied chemical levels such as waste disposal systems, irrigation lines, and storage tanks. Corrosive resistance capability of the cement prevents carbonation and protects the steel reinforcements of the building or slab for long-term durability.
TOKYO SUPER + is undoubtedly the Greenest cement available in the market. Due to its Fly Ash content TOKYO SUPER + is able to reduce CO2 emissions by over 25%. Minimising its carbon footprint even further, TOKYO SUPER + is totally manufactured using carbon-neutral, renewable biomass energy making it the Greenest choice in the construction industry. This introduction marks Tokyo Cement’s readiness to cater to emerging demands of the industry for more environmental conscious products that help create a sustainable future.
