(GBFS) Granulated blast-furnace slag is obtained by quenching molten iron slag (a by-product of iron and steel-making) from a blast furnace in water or steam, to produce a glassy, granular product that is then dried and ground into a fine powder. It is suitable for applications in marine environment, mass concreting and sulphate environment, water retaining structures, basement and other structures which require low heat of hydration.
 GBFS is the most used raw material in cement industry to make slag cement.
– Fill behind reinforced earth wall construction
– Raw material for the manufacture of glass
– Be used as a substitute for sand in building materials
– As a stabilising agent in road construction.
– As a grit-blasting medium.
GBFS is off-white in colour and substantially lighter than Portland cement. The whitish colour is also observed in concrete made with GBS, especially at addition of 50% and above. The more pleasing appearance of GBFS concrete can help soften the visual impact of large structure such as bridges, retaining walls, etc
