When ordinary cement is used in massive concrete application will generate in excessive heat resulitng in different temperature gradients and thereby cracks in surface. Low Heat cement is used to minimize this effect. This type of cement is ideal for dams and foundations, where temperature differntials to be controlled to ensure structure integrity. It is typically manufactured by a blend of general purpose portland cement and ground granulated blast slag in a typical ratio of 35:65. In India, it is manufactured by Birla Corp Ltd.
