re Cement pridaction

Hello,

The only realistic ways to reduce the lightness of your cement are to;-

(a) Lower the amount of limestone in the cement.

or

(b) make the clinker colour darker by increasing the iron content (or by adding 1-2% manganese oxide to the raw mix.)

Both will increase your cost/tonne cement.

 

Regards,

Ted.
