Slag is a by-product from steel plants, which is obtained from blast furnaces, during the separation of iron from iron ore. The process involves cooling of the slag through high-pressure water jets, this leads to formation of granular particles. The granulated slag is further processed by drying and then grinding in a vertical roller mill or rotating ball mill or roller press to a very fine powder,which is called GGBS.

Comparison of GGBS vs FLY ASH

GROUND GRANULATED BLAST FURNACE SLAG

GGBS can be used as a partial replacement of OPC cement in concrete production at batching plants.

The Multi-fold Advantages of GGBS

GGBS’s inherent chemistry gives it several advantages over ordinary cement. Apart from being environment-friendly, it offers:

  • Reduced thermal cracks due to lower heat of hydration
  • Reduced shrinkage cracks
  • Improved workability and smooth finish
  • Improved cohesion
  • Less susceptible to chemical attacks
  • Higher long-term strength
  • Higher flexural strength
  • Improved durability and hydration.
