The Slag Cement Association (SCA) has launched a new, mobile-friendly website with slag cement-related tools, resources, and downloadable materials for ready-mix producers, engineers, and other industry professionals.
The website, www.slagcement.org , has an archive of diverse case studies and downloadable information sheets provide the evidence needed for professionals to introduce slag cement to new projects. The site also features a new tool that allows users to locate slag cement by state.
SCA president Ed Griffith said: “While the new www.slagcement.org site is easier to use, and contains a wealth of technical resources and case studies, I am most excited about the new slag cement locator. This new locator tool readily connects concrete and design professionals with available slag cement supply across the United States.”
New website features include:
- Slag Cement Locator – the new slag cement locator tool allows users to quickly and easily find slag cement suppliers by state. Slag cement is available throughout the US through SCA member companies.
- Case Study Gallery – the website features a gallery of award-winning projects utilizing slag cement. Project categories include airports, bridges, stadiums, highways, soil stabilization, residential, hospitals, and buildings.
- Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Calculator – the calculator is used to quantify and interpret cradle-to-gate LCA environmental impacts of ready-mixed concrete mixtures with and without slag cement. The tool, available for free download on the SCA website, also allows users to evaluate how different concrete mixtures affect whole building impacts based on a typical case study building.
