Our SCMs are mined and processed in Wausau, Wisconsin and Corona, California. 3M’s Natural Pozzolan can be used as a partial cement replacement, in a binary or ternary mix, that includes fly ash or slag cement.
3M Natural Pozzolan is already approved in two state DOT material lists: The California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) includes NP200C on their list of Authorized Cementitious Materials For Use in Concrete; and the Ohio Department of Transportation includes NP100W on their Qualified Products List for Concrete Mix Design. 3M anticipates that more state approvals will follow.
3M Natural Pozzolan is an economic solution for a partial cement replacement. This material can be used for ready-mix, concrete modular units and shot-crete applications.
Product features include: consistency, stable air, lower heat of hydration, improved finishability, and can be pumped efficiently. 3M Natural Pozzolan also helps lower the carbon footprint of concrete and can help earn LEED credits for the use of recycled materials.

"For many years, our top-quality concrete products depended on top quality ingredients and raw materials. We rely on a consistent supply of 3M Natural Pozzolan all year to make higher quality, sustainable concrete products. In my experience, using 3M NP100W in mix designs not only helps in the psi safety factor, overall strength and performance, but has an economical advantage. Some of the recent residential projects where we are using NP 100W in our mixes is resulting in very good overall performance. These applications include footings, poured walls, street curbs and sidewalks. 3M provides us with quality assured Natural Pozzolan that is always available, economical and delivered to our Cleveland rail terminal."

“The use of 3M’s NP100W has helped Kuhlman Corporation to supply quality ready mixed concrete for the past few years. As the available supply of fly ash has diminished the accessibility of NP100W allows for continued production of air entrained concrete. NP100W allows for stable air contents and improved finishability. 3M’s innovation permits Kuhlman the use of another tool in the concrete toolbox.”
