There are many benefits to use GGBS or Fly Ash, the more significant are:

  1. IMPROVED & RETAINED WORKABILITY
    – for placing, ease of compaction & finishing
    – for coping with transport and site delays
  2. LOWER HEAT OF HYDRATION
    – for reduced risk of thermal cracking and long-term strength development
  3. LONG-TERM STRENGTH GAIN
    – for long-term structural integrity
  4. ENHANCED DURABILITY
    – higher resistance to sulphate-attack
    – higher resistance to chloride penetration (marine environment)
    – better resistance to dilute acids
    – protection against Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR)
  5. LIGHTER COLOR (applies to GGBS)
