Masonry cement is the compound which is form by lime components with cement, it is gives the better workability, less shrinkage and good finish in plastering and concrete work. The property of masonry cement will be increased by the use of FLAS compound and also reduce the cost of cement. In this compound lime is easy available in market, aluminium silicate is the chemical admixture, fly ash and surkhi is waste material which utilize in masonry cement to increase the binding property and reduce cost of cement. Cement is a binding material and very essential part of construction and the requirement of cement are too high in developing as well as developed countries. In India various housing scheme launched by the central government and state government for low income group. All of these factors gradually increase the demand of cement. The requirement of fine and course aggregate can be fulfill by C&D waste and other broken solid waste but the there is not any other alternative of cement. In this paper we have tries to reduce the cost of cement from the addition of Fly ash, lime, Aluminium Silicate, and Surkhi i.e. FLAS. It is reduce the much cost of the cement.
