Benefits of using slag cement - Concrete
Slags are used as a replacement of portland cement in amounts typically between 25 and 70% of the total mass of cementitious material. Slag concretes have improved long-term strengths even though their early strength development is lower than portland cement concretes. They also have lower permeability and improved durability.اقرأ أكثر

What is Slag Cement? (with pictures)
Slag cement has actually been used in concrete projects in the United States for over a century. Its earliest use was documented in 1774, when it was combined with slaked lime and used as a mortar.This cement was first used commercially in Germany in the 1860s, and it was such a success that engineers in 1889 decided to build the Paris underground metro using slag-lime cement.اقرأ أكثر
