Silica fume, also known as microsilica, is an amorphous (non-crystalline) polymorph of silicon dioxide, silica. It is an ultrafine powder collected as a by-product during silicon and ferrosilicon alloy production.
According to the SiO2 content, our products can arrange form grade 85% to grade 98%. According to the bulk density, we can divide our products into densified silica fume and undensified silica fume.
(1) Silica fume in Concrete
. Can increasing strength, density
. Frost resistance, Early strength.
. abrasion resistance performance.
(2) Silica fume in Cement
Strengthen cement impermeability.
Strengthens the fiber cement product
(3) Silica fume is used in refractory
Greatly improved products strength and high-temperature performance.
(4) Other Applications for Silica Fume
. Rubber industry
. Anti-caking industry
. Pellet binder
. Waterglass industry
Chemical and physical properties
|Bulk Density (Undensified)||kg/m3||200 – 350|
|Bulk Density (Densified)||kg/m3||500 – 700|
|Loss on Ignition(LOI)||%||<6.0|
|Specific surface(BET)||m2/g||15 – 35|
Suitable for all concrete and mortar applications where the benefits of silica fume are required:
- Higher compressive strength
- Increased durability – Longer service life for structures
- Enhanced rheology – Control of mixture segregation & bleed
Newreach silica fume(Microsilica) into the concrete mixer and mix thoroughly with the other mixture ingredients, adopting a procedure that ensures full dispersion of the product. Dosage varies depending on application. Contact Newreach for information and advice.
Newreach silica fume is a dry silica fume available in two main forms. Undensified and Densified. In use, it acts physically as an interactive filler and chemically as a highly reactive pozzolan. A key ingredient in many construction materials, Newreach Microsilica is used in cement products as a process aid, to improve ingredient dispersion and to improve hardened properties and overall durability.
Available in a range of packaging options, including:
- 25 kg paper bags& 1000 kg jumbo bags.
- Big bags in various designs & sizes
- Bulk road tanker
