MICROSILICA

Microsilica also known as Silica fume, it is very fine pozzolanic material, composed of amorphous silica produced by electric arc furnaces as a byproduct of the production of elemental silicon or ferro silicon alloys. Microsilica can be used in a variety of cementitious products such as concrete, grouts and mortars as well as elastomer polymer, refractory, ceramic and rubber applications.

Micro Silica is a by-product material which consists of non-crystalline silicon dioxide with high specific surface area and high pozzolanic reactivity. Use of it in concrete as pozzolanic material has demonstrated significant influence in improving the mechanical and durability properties. Micro Silica is a highly pozzolanic material. The non-crystalline silica and high specific surface area of our product are responsible for its high pozzolanic reactivity.
