Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS), otherwise known as slag, is a by-product of the steel and iron industry which is milled to a fine consistency.
Slag offers a number of benefits when used in construction. These include:
We’ve been producing Slagment from our plant in Vanderbijlpark for more than 50 years, contributing to the construction of major structures such as dams, bridges and roads.
We produce a number of different slag products including custom-made products such as:
A specially engineered superior quality cement for use in a wide variety of structural, residential, brick & block as well as masonry applications.
AfriSam Rapid Hard Cement is ideal for use in the precast concrete industry where faster demoulding times are required, as well as for fast-track construction projects to facilitate earlier stripping of formwork.
AfriSam High Strength Cement is a specially developed composite cement for use in brick- and block-making, reservoirs, precast operations, structural concrete, shotcrete and mining operations.
AfriSam Roadstab Cement is a specially engineered composite, high quality cement for use specifically in road stabilisation, ensuring uniform distribution of the stabilising agent throughout the stabilised layer.
AfriSam’s StarBuild is a 32,5N cement and cost-effective alternative for applications not requiring high early-strength development. It is suitable for a limited range of applications in the build environment where it offers consistent performance.
