    Recycling Of Steel Slag Aggregate In Portland Cement

    Feb 01, 2021 The volume expansion of SSA in Portland cement concrete is mainly caused by the hydration of free-CaO and free-MgO (Juckes, 2003). The free-CaO in SSA is from the lime added during steelmaking as a fluxing agent. CaO reacts with acidic oxide including P 2 O 5, SiO 2, Al 2 O 3, Fe 2 O 3 during the process. If excess CaO is added, free-CaO will retain in the slag.
