Green Materials for Sustainable Construction
Portland Slag Cement (PSC) is one such blended cement. PSC’s main component - slag - is a by-product from steel plants. Slag is a non-metallic product comprising more than 90 % glass, with silicates and alumino-silicates of lime. It is made by combining 45-50 % slag, 45-50 % clinker, and 3-5 % gypsum. Due to its range of benefits, durability and low heat of hydration, it is suitable for mass construction. It has further helped in reducing the carbon footprint of the group.
