Since 1918 Slag has been called the “All-Purpose Aggregate” because it can be used in all construction applications as either a normal weight or lightweight (expanded or pelletized) aggregate depending on how it was formed and processed.
SLAG is a broad term covering all non metallic products resulting from the separation of a metal from its ore, its chemistry and morphology depends on the metal being produced and the solidification process used.
Slag is sometimes erroneously classified as industrial waste. In fact, we utilize Slag in versatile construction material for environmentally beneficial use.
Applications include road construction, media blasting, landscape material, base for artificial turf, railway ballast, filtration, and agriculture re-mineralization.
Is Slag Safe?
Slag is commonly used as landfill coverage, erosion control, and as an agricultural liming agent. The environmentally safe chemical analysis makes Slag a smart alternative for projects considered for LEED credits by the US Green Build Association.

0 x 1 inch
Slag sized up to 1 inch is widely used for dust control, construction areas, anti- skid aggregate, and track out for farms, golf courses, campgrounds, and RV parks.
0 x 2 1/2 inch
This slightly larger size Slag is used for heavy equipment and truck parking areas, hay barns, golf cart paths, sidewalk base, camp sites and more.
Used for base fills, road shoulder applications, embankment protection, and erosion control.
4 1/2 x 7 inch
Larger sized Slag mainly used for embankments, erosion control, base fill, and railway ballast.
