GGBS, Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag, is one of the most sought after sustainable building materials in India. Tata Steel IBMD is one of the leading suppliers of GGBS and the product has been used in construction of many iconic structures in India.
The Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS) is obtained by grinding blast furnace slag in water or steam. This process leads to a glassy, granular product that is then dried and ground into a fine powder. GGBS offers a more sustainable concrete having higher compressive strength, reduced permeability and resistance to chloride and sulphate attacks.
Tata Steel GGBS has been awarded the Green Pro Certification for its varied applications, and usage as a sustainable building material. The product, apart from offering environmental benefits, also helps in cost saving, and leads to durable constructions.
Awarded "GreenPro" Certification by CII-Godrej GBC.
