Batimix Slag DG3-P

Ground glass blast furnace slag (GGBFS)

Description

BATIMIX Slag DG3-P is a nonmetallic hydraulic cement consisting essentially of silicates and aluminosilicates of calcium developed in a molten condition simultaneously with iron in a blast furnace. It is used in both wet and dry-mix shotcrete applications. It enhances strength and durability and reduces the permeability of hardened concrete.

Main Purpose

When added to the shotcrete mix, the ultra-fine particles of Batimix Slag DG3-P significantly improve the particle packing by physically filling the voids in the cement paste. This leads to a more densified shotcrete skeleton with a reduced level of bleeding. On the other hand, this product reacts chemically with the calcium hydroxide present in the cement paste, yielding a calcium silicate hydrate gel that significantly enhances strength, water/chloride impermeability, and durability.

Applications using Batimix Slag DG3-P include all types of high strength and specialty shotcrete and repair applications.

Features

Shotcrete prepared with Batimix Slag DG3-P are characterized by the following:

In the plastic state:

  • Enhanced workability and slump retention
  • Slightly extended initial and final setting times
  • Reduced heat of hydration, a feature particularly advantageous in mass concrete
  • Reduced bleeding and segregation

In the hardened state:

  • Optimized construction costs due to reduced cement contents in the concrete mix
  • Increased late-age compressive and flexural strengths

Dosage

From 5% to 50% of the cement weight.
