Embankment Ballast
Embankment Ballast

Slag aggregate’s high density, strength and cubical shape makes it a material of choice for embankments

Slag’s structural properties are extremely well-suited to protect areas from soil erosion, making it superior to natural stones in these applications. The high density of slag, and its cubical interlocking nature, promotes stability and efficient drainage. Slag can be mixed with soil to form a reinforced block that resists the load created by soil erosion, and it is excellent support material for culverts. Slag embankments will resist both mechanical deterioration and environmental erosion.
