SLK CEMENT SUPPLIES ITS PRODUCTS FOR RENOVATION OF M5 HIGHWAY
"Sukholozhskcement" plant continues to supply road cement for repairs of the Federal Highway M5 ‘Ural’ near the town of Chebarkul (Chelyabinsk Region). Since the end of August, the plant has produced 7,800 tons of CEM I 42.5N DP cement for this project.
On average, 12 trucks deliver cement daily to the site near Malkovo Village, Chelyabinsk Region. Within the project scope, renovation of a two-lane 18 km long section of the highway has been completed already based on the products of "Sukholozhskcement".
“We watch closely the chemical composition as early as during the raw material production phase, and there is rigid control in place over grinding fineness, water segregation and other parameters during the grinding process”, Roman Stikharev, quality assurance director of SLK Cement, explained, “thanks to this approach, our customers can user superior quality products that meet all the requirements of the state standards”.
This year, the plant has dispatched totally over 70,000 tons of the CEM I 42.5N DP grade including airport runway construction projects in Chelyabinsk and Tobolsk. Besides, the plant continues to supply road cement for repairs of the highway R254 ‘Irtysh’ (Chelyabinsk – Kurgan – Omsk – Novosibirsk) near the settlements of Vargashi, Pushkino, Shumikhi and Medvedskiy.
The plant began series production of the road cement that is used for manufacturing of ready mixes intended for road and aerodrome pavements in the transport construction industry in 2017. Subject to correct choice of composition, concrete based on this CEM I 42.5N DP grade features higher resistance to aggressive media, low heat generation during solidification, high strength, frost resistance, water tightness and long service life.
