Lafarge Cement currently holds the leadership position in Eastern Indian markets, producing high performance blended cements in Portland Slag Cement (PSC) and Portland Pozzolona Cement (PPC) variants. Lafarge enjoys high brand equity through its different brands; Lafarge Concreto, Lafarge Duraguard and Lafarge Cement.BRANDS DuraguardThe strength and longevity of cement depends on its granular composition along with its chemical constituents. Research further proves that the unique particle size distribution of Duraguard cement helps in making a denser concrete, which prevents the porosity as well as the water ingress. The use of high quality cementitious material helps in converting the free lime to cement, leading to prevention of leeching which ultimately gives higher impermeability. This also reduces development of cracks due to shrinkage & expansion of the structure caused by the environmental stress.Lafarge ConcretoConcreto was developed in Lafarge's state-of-the art laboratories, which are extensively networked with its Central Research Institute in France. The company has leveraged its combined know-how of more than 170 years and its experience across 75 countries to develop this unique productLafarge Concreto a premium cement of international standards from the house of Lafarge can fulfill the artistic needs of an individual. Along with superior structural strength and enhanced durability, Lafarge Concreto is the only cement that also offers aesthetic benefits. Other than acting as very strong home-building cement, Lafarge Concreto also adds value to a building by becoming the key factor in its decor. Concreto is malleable and can easily form any shape required by the homebuilder.Lafarge CementLafarge Cement is a very high performance blended Portland Slag Cement available in the major markets in East India. Lafarge Cement is well accepted and appreciated by the consumers for its superior product quality and the consistency in product delivery.Lafarge Cement is suitable for all types of the construction applications -Residential Building, Complexes, RCC work, Multistoried buildings, Mass concrete works, underground concrete works like foundations, roofing and all types of plasters, masonry works etc.Home building centerGoing beyond product innovation, Lafarge India established the unique Home Building Centres to help homebuilders create their dream homes. A first-of-its-kind initiative in India, these centres provide homebuilders the opportunity to interact with different construction experts and find out how to save time, money and effort, explore design options and decide on the right building materials and more.Lafarge Invention AwardsInnovation is a strategic priority for Lafarge, which dedicates 150 million euros per year to technology and innovation in products, systems and industrial processes. With an industrial presence in India spanning more than 10 years, Lafarge is today seeking to promote innovation for sustainable construction in India and to strengthen its ties with materials science and construction experts across the country.Lafarge, has announced the launch of the Lafarge Invention Awards 2011, a competition to reward innovative projects in India related to building materials and contributing to sustainable construction. The competition will target entrepreneurs or new companies, engineering consultants, architects, researchers and academics in India, who will have from September 1st until November 30, 2011 to submit their entries, via a secure website www.lafarge-inventionawards.com.The fast pace of Indian economic and demographic growth is generating immense needs for new infrastructure and housing, which must be met through new, innovative approaches to construction that take into account social, economic and environmental imperatives.Announcing the launch of the competition, Pascal Casanova, Director of Research and Development at Lafarge, said, "Developing solutions to meet the specific needs of the Indian market requires close partnership with local actors in the construction chain. This is why we recently opened a joint laboratory with IIT Madras to push research on concrete quality and durability. We are today seeking to strengthen our collaboration with Indian construction innovators, through the Lafarge Invention Awards 2011."The Lafarge Invention Awards aim to reward innovative projects related to Lafarge building materials - aggregates, cement, concrete and gypsum - and that contribute to sustainable construction. Projects submitted should be based on an invention less than 5 years old. They should involve a new product, industrial process, construction method or service and should have reached at least the prototype phase, ideally demonstrated in a real construction project. The competition was first launched in 2010, focusing on the European market for its first edition.The three winning projects from the Lafarge Invention Awards 2011 will be selected in March 2012, by a panel of Lafarge executives and renowned experts, with prize winners receiving respectively Rs 10,00,000 INR, Rs 500,000 and Rs 2,50,000.Iit madras & lafarge collaborate to scale new heights in concrete researchLafarge Research Center, the R&D wing of Lafarge Group, collaborated with IIT Madras, Chennai to conduct research on the durability and long term performance of concrete. Lafarge and the Department of Civil Engineering of Indian Institute of Technology Madras is setting up a state-of-the-art laboratory dedicated to the study of the mechanisms influencing the degradation of reinforced concrete structures.FICCI Safety excellence awardLafarge India bagged the Platinum Award (1st Prize) in the large scale manufacturing units category. Lafarge India was selected from over 200 companies who participated in the evaluation. A thorough audit of compliance of Health & Safety Standards by a distinguished panel was undertaken at Lafarge India's Sonadih Cement Plant. The Sonadih plant offered potent glimpses of how implementation and practice of Health & Safety parameters like WAH (Working at Height), PPE (Personal Protective equipments) usage, Energy Isolation, LOTOTO (Lock Out, Tag Out, Try Out) and Transportation Safety by Lafarge India has lead to continuous improvement in performance.At Lafarge India Health & Safety is of topmost priority. The company has undertaken various initiatives over the years to create a safety culture among its employees and all stakeholders.
