Concrete industry representatives will present an educational session at the American Concrete Institute Fall Convention on Monday, October 26th, 2020 at 10AM EST.. Presentation descriptions and speaker information can be found below.
The Slag Cement Association is currently in the process of updating the Product Category Rules (PCR) for preparing an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Slag Cement (Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag).
A review committee of industry stakeholders has incorporated appropriate updates and conducted its initial review of the document. The review committee would now like to accept public comments on the document.
This free webinar series features 4 different presentations on slag cement and it's role in creating more sustainable, resilient, and durable concrete.
This research paper illustrates the potential value in introducing slag cement into concrete drainage systems. The reduced permeability benefits of slag cement can help reduce the coefficient of friction between water and concrete, thus promoting water flow in drainage systems. The use of slag cement in these applications can lead to cost savings on system maintenance and construction while helping prevent damages to the drainage system.
The reactivity of 11 different GGBFS materials is quantified and compared with other SCMs to “classify” the GGBFS. Furthermore, one GGBFS is used as replacement for OPC at levels of 20, 40, and 60% to study the effects of the GGBFS on cementitious paste properties such as heat release, compressive strength, and bulk resistivity.
Twelve construction projects from across North America were chosen to showcase the broad applications of slag cement and its impact on creating more durable, resilient and sustainable concrete. Two research projects on slag cement use are also being honored in this year’s program.
We are currently seeking voting, observer, and commenting members for the Slag Cement Product Category Rule (PCR) committee.
The 2020 Slag Cement Project of the Year Awards Nomination Process is now open.
Explore the benefits of using different supplementary cementitious materials (SCM) in your mix design. Attendees will leave the presentation with a clearer understanding of how slag cement and other SCM’s enhance concrete, making it more durable, stronger, less permeable, and more sustainable. Additionally, the session will explore slag cement’s effect on slump, workability and its enhanced finishing properties. The session will also highlight case study projects that have utilized slag cement...
**Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the SCA Awards Ceremony has been postponed for the time being. We hope to re-schedule this event during the ACI Fall Convention in Raleigh North Carolina and more details will be posted soon.**
