The cement that has built Zambia

"Lafarge is proud that its product has been instrument in projects for over 50 years with superior quality. These projects range from 'Independence Stadium', 'Kariba Dam Wall', 'Lumwana Mine', 'University of Zambia' and Chinese built 'New Government Complex'."

SupaSet – A New Product

A new improved product, SupaSet was introduced into the market. This product is expected to lower costs in key sectors like energy and mining.

The new cement, to be used for block making is a 42.5R Portland Limestone cement. The product would lower construction costs in the construction of hydropower stations, dam walls and in the mining sector.

So in a nutshell, SupaSet 42.5R at Lafarge Cement Zambia is a rapid setting cement specifically developed for block and concrete production. This innovative product ensures higher productivity, delivering more blocks so much faster than any other cement.

You should choose SupaSet because of the following:
  1. Higher rate of early strength development that results in a faster turnout of blocks.
  2. Fast drying rate allows for blocks to be moved quicker.
  3. Improved workability for easier placing, compaction and finishing.
  4. Reduced water requirement, resulting in less cracking and more strength.
  5. Better cohesion, so concrete stays uniformly mixed until it sets.
