GGBS ensures the ultimate performance of your concrete. Concrete made with GGBS is of equal or greater strength than that made with Ordinary Portland Cement. GGBS has been proven to double its 28 day strength after 10-12 years.
The superior performance of GGBS mixed concrete ensures you achieve the best value for money and sustainability in construction.
GGBS will future proof your project against changes due to climate change and ensure the increased life span of your project. Benefits include protection against:
GGBS mixed concrete offers your project the ultimate durability. The increased durability ensures that you are getting the best value for money in your project and reduces the repairs required in the long term.
The greater durability of concrete made with GGBS will extend the service life of concrete.
Chemicals such as Chlorides and Sulphates can attack the structure of cement and thus causing damage to the structure.
Using GGBS increases the durability of the cement and protects the structure for longer in comparison to Ordinary Portland Cement. Due to its ultimate performance GGBS mix concrete is widely specified in harsh environments such as marine environments and roads and is commonly specified by numerous Govt, Semi- Govt Bodies and Concrete Consultants..
GGBS offers improved uniformity, workability, pumpability and compaction properties in concrete.
As GGBS is ground more finely than Ordinary Portland Cement this ensures that the concrete creates a larger volume of cement paste making it easier to work, pump, place and compact.
After water, concrete is the most consumed substance on earth, with 2.5 tons of concrete poured for every person on the planet every year. The active ingredient for concrete is cement, whose production is responsible for 5% of global CO2 emissions.
This is due to the way cement is manufactured (very high energy demands and the high carbon content of the raw material: limestone). For every tons of cement produced, a tons of CO2 is released into the atmosphere, an alarming figure for a widely used construction material.
GGBS based concrete reduces the Carbon footprint by almost 16 times then the regular concrete.
The resulting concrete made with GGBS cement is stronger, longer lasting and better looking than traditional concrete. All of these benefits come at no extra cost to the end user.
GGBS will future proof your project against changes due to climate change and ensure the increased life span of your project. Benefits include:
GGBS based concrete results into improved structural performance contributing to enhanced design and contributing to the overall lean design of the project.
GREEN BUILDING RATING SYSTEMS
Use of GGBS in the construction contributes to green building rating systems such as LEED.
