The Slag Cement Association (SCA) announced that slag cement shipments in 2017 exhibited a 14 percent growth over 2016, continuing an upward demand for slag cement within the U.S. market.
“As consumers are becoming more aware of the variety of benefits and applications associated with slag cement use in construction, they also start to rely on its consistency,” said Ed Griffith, SCA president. “The reliability of the product seems to go over well with the industry, it’s nice to see the shipping trends reflect this industry awareness.”
In the last year, the SCA has placed an increased focus on providing the concrete industry tools to showcase the availability of slag cement in the United States. One of the more recent tools added to the association’s website is a slag cement locator. Visitors to the website are able to select a state and view the contact information for local slag cement distributors.
