The Difference in Slag Cement and Fly Ash

Fly ash and slag cement work well together in certain applications and can be used to achieve higher strength gains corrosion resistance and lowered concrete permeability The optimum mixture proportions for ternary blends as with other concrete will be dependent on the final use of the concrete construction requirements and seasonal...

FLY ASH CONCRETE

Fly ash in concrete contributes to a stronger more durable and more chemical resistant concrete mix The main benefit of fly ash for concrete is that it not only reduces the amount of non-durable calcium hydroxide lime but in the process converts it into calcium silicate hydrate CSH which is the strongest and most durable portion of the...
