Slag, a resource for the 90s

Slag products have long had a connection with the cement and concrete industries. Earliest applications probably came from use of slag spalls as fillers in mass concrete. From the one type of molten slag it is possible to produce a whole range of different products, many currently in use. One of the best known is Ground Granulated Slag (from Iron Blast Furnaces). This paper provides an insight into the Slag products which are available, their history, current use & methods of production. While much of the 4 million tonnes of slag produced in Australia each year is used, the potential exists to further improve the uses for slag. The range of current and potential products from slag makes it a good resource for the Cement and Concrete industries for the 1990s and beyond.
