Transforming by-products into high quality, value-for-money products for construction

Slag aggregate is a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to natural stone. This high-performing aggregate is hard and durable, with the additional benefit of draining well. Due to its cubical shape, the slag aggregate locks together which makes it an excellent candidate for construction applications.

Slag consists of a complex structure of minerals, which is derived from a renewable source, making it a viable environmental alternative to quarried rock. Steel slag is also an alternative to high specification aggregate, capable of outperforming natural aggregates in terms of strength, durability and safety.
