The Slag Cement Association (SCA) announces the launch of www.slagcement.org – its new, mobile-friendly website featuring slag cement-related tools, resources, and downloadable materials to serve the needs of ready-mix producers, engineers, and other industry professionals.
With the versatile capabilities of slag cement, the new www.slagcement.org helps the construction community understand the many different applications and benefits to the use of slag cement. The website’s archive of diverse and visually appealing case studies and downloadable information sheets provide the evidence needed for professionals to introduce slag cement to new projects. Additionally, the site features an easy-to-use new tool that allows users to locate slag cement by state.
“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,” stated Ed Griffith, President, Slag Cement Association.
New website features include:
- 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. This is a great tool for professionals seeking actual examples of slag cement use and its benefits in concrete design.
- 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 U.S. through SCA member companies.
- Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Calculator – The recently released LCA 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.
Additionally, the mobile-friendly design of the new site makes it easy for users to navigate through the various tools, resources, and locator tool on a phone, tablet, or desktop computer.
