Abstract – This leads to more efforts towards the use of waste materials with lower environmental impact The PSC Portland slag cement contains ground granulated blast furnace slag as constituent of cement . The Fly ash cement contains fly ash as cement constituent. In India slag cement has main share (about 60%) of the cement market. It is used for almost all types of concrete structures, while it is exclusive material for structures in marine environments. inclusion of Silica Fume in binder mix positively improves the strength of the matrix and its chemical resistance but can create increase in water demand, placing difficulties, plastic shrinkage etc. However. The slag, fly ash and slag and fly ash cement is mixed with silica fume as 0%, 10%, 20%, at the curing ages of 7,28 and 60 days. All these materials have certain shortfalls but a proper combination of them can compensate each other’s drawbacks which may result in a good matrix product with enhance overall quality.
