Michigan Department of Transportation

6AA Blast Furnace Slag conforms to all the requirements of Michigan Department of Transportation (M•DOT) “2012 Standard Specifications for Construction”, section 902

Usage Guide:

The 6AA Blast Furnace Slag should be blended into the concrete mixture along with the cement, fine aggregate, water, admixtures and any special additives in the proportions detailed in the mix design. Care needs to be taken to maintain the moisture content of the 6AA Blast Furnace Slag at or above the absorption level (3.5%-4.5%) so as to prevent the absorption of mix water into the Blast Furnace Slag particles.
