Ground Granulated Blast furnace Slag (GGBS) is a by product from the blast furnaces used to make iron. Slag is obtained by rapidly chilling (quenching) the molten ash from the furnace with the help of water. During this process, the slag gets fragmented and transformed into amorphous granules (glass), meeting the requirement of (manufacturing specification for granulated slag used in Portland Slag Cement). The granulated slag is ground to desired fineness for producing GGBS.
Being complementary to cement. GGBS finds its major use as part replacement of cement. GGBS has been successfully used as enhancer of concrete properties in site mixes as well as Ready Mix Concrete (RMC) for many decades worldwide.
Packaging of GGBS
Bulker Trucks: We have our own transportation Bulkers which has a capacity 30-35 tonnes.
Small Bags: GGBS Small Bag Packing- 50kg Bag Packing
The addition of GGBS to OPC is not only cost effective but also benefits the structural elements in many ways and extends the life of the structure by providing more durability
- Ensures higher durability of structure.
- Reduces the temperature rise and helps to avoid early-age thermal cracking.
- Improved workability.
- It is off-white in colour and substantially lighter than Portland cement. Resultantly it helps soften the visual impact of large structures such as bridges and retaining walls.
GGBS significant attribute of providing ultimate strength when added to Portland cement makes it the preferred material in the construction of;
- High-rise buildings.
- Marine applications such as dams, shore protection construction.
- Effluent and sewage treatment plants.
- Cement products such as tiles, pipes, blocks, etc.
