AALBORG EXTREMETM LIGHT120 officially launched in November 2018

Since November 2018, AALBORG EXTREMETM LIGHT120, the new generation of premixed Ultra-High-Performance Concrete based on AALBORG WHITE® cement is being launched in the global market.

The product is being deployed in Europe and will reach the US and China during January 2019. AALBORG EXTREMETM LIGHT120 is the first commercialised product under the AALBORG INWHITE SOLUTIONTM serving as an innovation engine for high value adding and technologically advanced White Cement based products. The Innovation Team, led by Group Sales, Marketing and Commercial Development working together with research and development’s Lab in Aalborg, has pursued to breaking the boundaries of traditional technology on White Cement application, with emphasis on innovation and environmental protection, to support the development of sustainable industrial products.

AALBORG EXTREMETM LIGHT 120 is based on Cementir Holding’s recently patented sustainable binder technology, FUTURECEMTM, which offers highly advantageous pozzolanic reactions, without being constrained by the availability or quality of waste materials from other industries that minimise the impact on the environment. The premix UHPC product is fully documented with predictable performance allowing precast concrete manufacturers on-site tailorisation within a predefined range to achieve production cost and efficiency optimisation.

The successfully developed complex binder technology behind the UHPC product is a synergised achievement from Cementir Holding’s Innovation Team, Research and Quality Centre in Aalborg, Denmark, and Global Sales Team. AALBORG EXTREMETM LIGHT 120 is based on a further refinement of sustainable binder technology FUTURECEMTM, which employs a unique selection of the raw materials from an adequate existing natural resource, having superior pozzolanic reactions unconstrained by the availability and quality of waste materials from other industries.

As an innovation leading company in White Cement industry, Cementir Holding is committed to producing high-quality products in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner.

AALBORG WHITE®, a recognised and trusted global brand, is the White Cement used in the AALBORG EXTREMETM LIGHT 120, providing among others, the enhanced interaction with admixtures and a predictable and reliable UHPC performance due to its high degree of chemical purity and the inherent stability of quality.

AALBORG EXTREMETM LIGHT 120 has been developed to provide a safe and reliable solution for the manufacture of UHPC products, designed to successfully match the requirements at industrial manufacturers, whilst still offering tailorisation possibilities in terms of colouring, parting from its white colour, and further permitting a customised selection of fibre type and dosage. The robust UHPC mix has high viscosity, but excellent, high flow properties with an open time suited for industrial use. It is gratifying to receive the first ‘Voice of Custome’ in Europe who gave a positive assessment on the product. Together with Aalborg White Innovation Team, the Company has done several tests to monitor the workability and strength. The product contains excellent properties to perfectly meet the demand in the market.

The superior durability properties of AALBORG EXTREMETM LIGHT 120 make it viable to design and manufacture thin and lightweight, high strength concrete products like façades, cladding, sun-screens, garden ornaments or city furniture. The premix product offers an easy solution for the safe and clean production of high-quality UHPC elements fitting into the framework of a typical industrial production process due to its excellent properties.

As a leading White Cement manufacturer in the world, Cementir Holding has been at the forefront of White Cement innovation technology, adhering to the integration of a deep understanding of the customer and local market with the company's development strategy, emphasizing innovation and sustainability, using technology to develop new products supporting a sustainable development of the industry.
