This paper relates to the obtaining of an artificial porous aggregate from slag waste of non-ferrous metallurgy. The developed technology permits to widen raw stuff basis of producing artificial porous aggregates for lightweight concretes. The investigations have demonstrated that granulated slags which are a by-product and are obtained through making non-ferrous metals, can be utilized as a basic starting raw material for manufacturing an artificial porous aggregate. From the results of the investigations expansion intervals of a mass based on the studied slags of metallurgical plants are determined. The technology of obtaining an artificial porous aggregate with the prescribedphysico-mechanical characteristics has been worked out. The main physico-mechanical characteristics of the produced aggregate have been studied. It has been revealed that the obtained artificial porous aggregate meets the requirements of the acting standard GOST 9757-90 “Gravel, Crushed Stone and Sand, Artificial Porous” by its physico-mechanical characteristics. It is found that the strength of the obtained aggregate 1.5-2.0 times exceeds that of the well-known aggregate- keramzit gravel. Using porous sand lightweight concrete of B7.5-B40 strength class with density of 1100-1600kg/cu.m has been produced on the base of the obtained gravel and high-strength lightweight concrete of strength class B25-B50 with density of 1500-1800 kg/cu.m has been manufactured with the use of dense sand and plasticizing additives.
