Type II & Type V Sulfate Resistant Cements• Moderate sulfate resistant cements and high sulfate resistant cements improve the sulfate resistance of concrete elements, such as: – Slabs on ground – Pipes – Concrete posts exposed to high-sulfate soils.
Moderate and Low Heat Cements Moderate heat and low heat cements minimize heat generation in massive elements or structures such as very thick bridge supports, and dams.
Moderate and Low Heat Cements Hoover dam, shown here, used a Type IV cement to control temperature rise.
Type III High Early Strength Cements High early strength cements are used where early concrete strength is needed, such as in cold weather concreting, fast track paving to minimize traffic congestion, and rapid form removal for precast concrete.

New in 2009 Ternary Blended Cements The new cement type in C595 is a TERNARY BLENDED CEMENT and is designated IT. The basic description of a ternary cement is that it contains 2 SCMs along with portland cement or clinker. In close reading of C595 this option existed previously for pozzolans, but the change makes it clear when a ternary cement is used and what its composition is.
New in 2009 Ternary Blended Cements The concept of the change is that all of the same chemical and physical limits apply for ternary blended cements as applied to Type IS and IP BINARY blended cements. If the SCM present in the highest amount is a slag, requirements of Type IS apply. If a pozzolan is present in larger amount, the requirements of Type IP apply. To provide information for customers as to exactly what the ternary cement composition is, both the amount and type of SCM is defined in the cement nomenclature.
New in 2009 Ternary Blended Cements (Summary) New Type IT 1 slag and 1 pozzolan or 2 pozzolans Same chemical and physical limits for ternary blended cements as for binary blended cements (IP or IS) with the same predominant SCM Amount and type of SCMs used in nomenclature
Ternary Blended Cements The naming convention is shown here: The cement is called a TYPE IT with the amounts and types of SCM identified in parentheses. Generically this Type IT(AX)(BY) where A and B are the types of SCMs and X and Y are their corresponding amounts, in percentage by mass.
Ternary Blended Cements Nomenclature Format: Type IT(AX)(BY) Where A and B are SCM types and X and Y are amounts S=slag or P=pozzolan Primary (highest content) SCM listed first If X=Y requirements of Type IT(P>S) apply (Type IP) Example: Type IT(S25)(P15) contains 25% slag and 15% pozzolan
Ternary Blended Cements As noted earlier, the requirements for the ternary cement are identical to those for the binary cement (IP or IS) with the same SCM present in the highest amount. For example a Type IT(S25)(P15) has more slag cement and thus the requirements are the same as those of a Type IS(25). Optional requirements such as MS, HS, or LH can also be invoked.
