GGBS – Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag

GGBS – Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag

Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS) offers great durability, reducing the likelihood of concrete thermal cracking, and it improves concrete’s resistance to damage from alkali-silica reaction, sulphates and chlorides.

We provide a wide range of mineral products specifically designed for the infrastructure industry. These products offer high-performance solutions for various infrastructure applications. These products have applications in throughout everyday life.

One of the key products in this sector is MagnaDense, a high-density aggregate derived from Magnetite widely used in infrastructure projects as a counterweight material. Its high density allows for precise balancing and stability in structures such as bridges, dams, and offshore platforms, ensuring their structural integrity and safety. MagnaDense also acts as a radiation shielding material in nuclear facilities, providing essential protection.

Another notable product is olivine, a mineral known for its strength and durability. Olivine is used in infrastructure projects in road construction for stability, and resistance of asphalt pavements against deformation and cracking. It also contributes to improved skid resistance, ensuring safer road conditions. Additionally, olivine provides thermal stability and resistance to chemicals for refractory applications.

We also offer a range of filler minerals that find applications in various infrastructure projects. Talc and chalk are used in coatings to improve barrier properties, durability, and weather resistance. These minerals also enhance the workability and performance of construction materials like concrete, ensuring optimal strength and longevity in infrastructure applications.

Overall, our infrastructure mineral products offer high-performance solutions for the infrastructure industry. Whether it is counterweights for structural stability, olivine for road construction, or filler minerals for enhanced performance, we provide the necessary minerals to support the development and maintenance of infrastructure projects.
