Vietnam, S95 construction material,  first time, stringent requirements, ground granulated blast furnace slag,  by-product

The Hoa Phat Dung Quat Steel JSC ships the first batch of S95 ground granulated blast furnace slag to Australia on September 10.

The granulated blast furnace slag is a by-product of the iron and steel production process using closed blast furnace technology. Due to the extremely rapid cooling with high pressure water, the granulated blast furnace slag is good for cement and concrete and has been used for a long time around the world as well as in Vietnam.

S95 fine blast furnace slag products contribute to treating solid waste during Hoa Phat’s green steel-making process, while protecting the environment and creating a stable source of revenue for the group.

The material can be applied as highly-activated mineral additives in the production of cement, concrete, and mortar, or as a binder to reinforce weak ground. With S95, it is possible to mass produce concrete by reducing hydrothermal heat, producing heat resistant concrete due to increased thermal stability, with durability in seawater, salt water, and brackish water, due to the increased waterproofing of the concrete, preventing the erosion of chlorine and sulphate and meeting the requirement to increase the life of works at sea, on islands, and in coastal areas.

With two iron production complexes in Kinh Mon, Hai Duong province, and Dung Quat in Quang Ngai, the Hoa Phat Group is able to supply the market with 2.6 million tonnes of S95 each year.

This first export affirms the group’s prestige in the global market, while opening up a new consumption channel for S95.

Australia plans to order larger volumes of S95 in the future.
