Product Name:

30A – Commercial (Levy)

Location:

Levy Plant 1

Applications:

Structural base under interlocking paving units

Surfacing for unpaved paths and driveways

Surfacing for playing fields

Structural fill

Description:

A dense graded base aggregate, produced by crushing and screening air-cooled iron Blast Furnace Slag. A light brown to gray crystalline aggregate formed simultaneously with the production of iron in a blast furnace. The particles are sized from 3/8″ (9.5mm) to zero (dust).

Specs:

Commercial (Levy)

30A Blast Furnace Slag conforms to all the requirements of the Edw. C. Levy Co. specifications for 30A Blast Furnace Slag

Usage Guide:

The 30A Blast Furnace Slag should be placed 4″ to 12″ thick depending upon ground conditions and design loadings, in lifts not exceeding 8″. Prior to the placement of any base material, the grade should be compacted and trimmed to the design density & elevations and be free of any standing water and not in a frozen condition. Base material should be compacted at optimum moisture content (approximately 8% to 10%) to 95% to 100% relative density or to the compaction level as specified in the design plans.
