LKAB Minerals is an international industrial minerals group, with operations in 11 countries.
LKAB Minerals is part of the Swedish State owned mining company LKAB, supplying upgraded Iron Ore Pellets
to the steel industry. In 2020, LKAB announced its strategy to become carbon dioxide emission free from its processes
and products by 2045. MagnaDense, originating from Sweden, is a natural high density aggregate which can provide concrete
densities of up to 4 t/m3, thus reducing the overall footprint of a project & the need for expensive piling and formwork.
LKAB Minerals are proud to continue our support of the Institute of Concrete Technology in 2021.
With 150 years of experience and heritage to our name, we're a national network of local businesses, combining the knowledge and expertise
of two of the construction industry's most iconic brands: Tarmac, pioneers and inventors of the modern road, and Blue Circle, the
company that patented Portland Cement.
We employ around 7,000 people across a network of more than 400 sites across the UK. Tarmac is part of CRH, the world's leading building materials business.
Hanson Cement is a division of Hanson UK which employs 3,500 people manufacturing cement, concrete, aggregates and asphalt. Hanson Cement supplies cement and Regen GGBS to the ready-mix, precast and concrete products sectors, as well as having an extensive packed cement market. Offering nationwide delivery and outstanding technical support, Hanson Cement is proud to support The Institute of Concrete Technology in 2021.
C-Probe Systems manufacture low carbon corrosion protection and monitoring products, in order to control steel frame corrosion and effectively increase asset service life. LoCem® is a low carbon alkali-activated cementitious material (AACM), which forms the basis of their product suite. This acts as a replacement to Portland cement and is specifically formulated to act as an impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) anode cement to offer whole life control of corrosion in reinforced concrete and masonry structures. These novel binders are repurposed from industrial waste by-products with no heat offering over 90% CO2e saving compared to CEM I. Using LoCem® as part of the repair or new build fabric of the structure offers a modern method of construction, while providing indefinite life and contribution to the circular economy.
