The high alumina content and absence of free lime enable CIMENT FONDU® concrete to resist extremes of temperature and repeated thermal shock. In these applications, the maximum service temperature is also a function of the aggregate type. The combination of CIMENT FONDU® with Alag® aggregates will resist temperatures up to 1100°C.
