Portland Limestone Cement

Building in Construction

We supply PLC cement bags from many approved local suppliers in the UAE (Ras Al Khaima and Abu Dhabi cement factories to name a few).

PLC, also known as Type 1L cement, is an innovative product that is reshaping how those in the construction industry use concrete. It's a type of blended cement that contains between 5 and 15% limestone. The product itself performs the same as standard concrete but it comes with great benefits.

What makes it so popular is that the limestone content results in a 10% reduction in its carbon footprint. This increased focus on sustainability is one of the reasons why it has grown in popularity.

Not only is PLC more sustainable, but it can often be less expensive than traditional cement as well, depending on the region. This is obviously a huge benefit for those in the concrete and construction industries.
