ASMS GBF007 Civil Grade Granulate is a coarse sand-like material with a porous, amorphous structure ranging from white to golden
brown in colour.
GBF007 is suitable for use in a range of manufacturing and civil applications including:
COMPOSITION AND MATERIALS
GBF007 is a glassy, granular material produced by granulating blast furnace slag.
Blast furnace slag is the non-metallic product consisting essentially of silicates and aluminosilicates of calcium and other bases developed in a molten condition simultaneously with iron in a blast furnace.
Molten slag is passed through high volume water sprays which break the slag stream into small droplets which are rapidly quenched, suppressing crystallisation and resulting in a material with a porous, amorphous structure.
TYPICAL PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
|Bulk Density (Loose)||t/m3||0.85 - 1.05|
|Angle of Repose||-||Approx. 35°|
Blast furnace slag is composed of silicates and aluminosilicates. Oxide equivalents are used for ease of reporting and typically fall within the limits below. Civil Grade Granulate may contain high and variable quantities of metallic iron.
