Slag Cement

Overview of Slag Cement

Slag cement commonly refers to the ground granulated blast-furnace slag, or GGBFS. It is a hydraulic cement that works synergistically with Portland cement to improve the strength and durability of concrete pavements. Slag is a byproduct of processing iron ore to iron and steel in a blast furnace. Molten slag, which floats on the top of the molten iron ore, is separated and granulated. Granulation is the rapid quenching with water of the molten slag into solid, hydraulically reactive glassy granules. These granules are then ground to a suitable fineness to produce slag cement or to incorporate as an ingredient in the manufacture of blended cements.
