( SILICA FUMED DENSIFIED )
IT IS USED IN THE PRODUCTION OF
IT IS USED IN THE PRODUCTION OF HIGH PERFORMANCE CONCRETE STRUCTURES LIKE BRIDGE’S WHERE THE STRENGHT AND DURABILITY PROPERTIES OF THE CONCRETE IS REQUIRED.
IT CAN BE USED TO BUILD MARINE STRUCTURES AS IT REDUCES THE DAMAGE CAUSED DUE TO THE REACTION OF CHLORIDE AND VARIOUS CHEMICALS, IT HELPS IN PROTECTION OF STEEL FROM RUST AND CORROSION AND INCRESES THE LIFE OF THE STUCTURE
THE RECOMMENDED DOSAGE IS
10 % OF THE CEMENT WEIGHT ADDED TO THE CONCRETE.
MICROSILICA or SILICA FUMED is the most commonly used mineral admixture in high strength concrete. It has become the chosen favorites for high strength concrete and is a good pozzolan & can be used in a big way, Adding to the concrete mix will dramatically enhance the workability, strength & impermeability of concrete mixes while making the concrete durable to chemical attacks, abrasion & reinforcement corrosion, increasing the comprehensive strength. There is a growing demand in the production of concrete mixes, high performance concrete, and high strength, low permeability concrete for use in bridges, marine environment, and nuclear plants etc etc.
