Tata Steel has launched two new products, Tata Aggreto and Tata Nirman, India’s first branded Linz-Donawitz (LD) slag products for applications in road, fly ash brick and clinker making. This is the first foray by any domestic steel major in branding processed steel slag.
Speaking on the launch of the brands, T V Narendran, CEO & MD, Tata Steel, said: “We at Tata Steel are extremely happy to have launched Tata Aggreto and Tata Nirman, which are designed to create value for customers, end users and Tata Steel.” He added that “Tata Steel has always believed in sustainable growth and we are on a journey to reduce the carbon footprint. The launch of Tata Aggreto and Tata Nirman will help us progress further in this journey.”
Tata Aggreto is produced out of 0-65mm processed LD slag with four different size ranges for convenience in design mix. Owing to its size and texture, it is suitable for use in bituminous and concrete road construction. Tata Nirman, produced from 0-6mm LD Slag, can be used as a replacement of sand and lime in fly ash bricks, whereas it can partially replace lime in clinker making.
