Slag cement shipments grew 14% in 2017, according to the Slag Cement Assoc. (SCA). Slag cement shipments in 2016 grew 12%.
“As consumers are becoming more aware of the variety of benefits and applications associated with slag cement use in construction, they also start to rely on its consistency” said Ed Griffith, SCA president.
In the last year, the SCA has placed an increased focus on providing the concrete industry tools to showcase the availability of slag cement in the United States. One of the more recent tools added to the association’s website is a slag cement locator. Visitors to the website will be able to select a state and view the contact information for local slag cement distributors.
