SteelPhalt | Product Selector

The product selector has been designed to aid you in the decision making process when specifying materials for your project.

All SteelPhalt slag aggregates typically achieve a PSV of 62. However, following research undertaken by Transport Research Laboratory and published in reports PPR737, PPR773 and PPR810, along with further inhouse testing, SteelPhalt’s products performed satisfactory in all the categories identified in the highlighted cells within the table below (which is taken from CD236) where the recommended PSV is frequently higher than 62.

To see what alternative products could be used, just hover the cursor over the required cell to show which SteelPhalt products we suggest.

Any products / values not highlighted indicate there are no products currently available.

NOTE: All options are SteelPhalt's recommendations but ultimately the product choice is down to the customer. Where designers are knowledgeable or have other experience of particular site conditions, an alternative PSV value can be specified.
