Intermediate Agg Blast Furnace Slag conforms to all the requirements of the current version of the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) Special Provision for Quality Control and Acceptance of Portland Cement Concrete, Appendix 1 for Optimized Aggregate Gradation.

Usage Guide:

The Coarse Aggregate Blast Furnace Slag, Intermediate Aggregate and Fine Aggregate should be proportioned in the batch plant as detailed in the Special Provision for Quality Control and Acceptance of Portland Cement Concrete, Appendix 1 for Optimized Aggregate Gradation. The coarse aggregates should be blended into the concrete mixture along with the cement, intermediate aggregate, 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 any 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.
