silica fume Topic - American Concrete Institute

Jan 01, 2021  Silica fume, a by-product of the ferrosilicon industry, is a highly pozzolanic material that is used to enhance mechanical and durability properties of concrete. It may be added directly to concrete as an individual ingredient or in a blend of portland cement and silica fume. In the United States, silica fume is used predominantly to produce concrete with greater resistance to chloride ...

Silica fume - Wikipedia

Segregation and bleeding: Silica fume reduces bleeding significantly because the free water is consumed in wetting of the large surface area of the silica fume and hence the free water left in the mix for bleeding also decreases. Silica fume also blocks the pores in the fresh concrete so water within the concrete is not allowed to come to the surface.

What is Silica Fume?

Silica fume is a byproduct of producing silicon metal or ferrosilicon alloys. One of the most beneficial uses for silica fume is in concrete. Because of its chemical and physical properties, it is a very reactive pozzolan. Concrete containing silica fume can have very high strength and can be very durable. Silica fume is available from suppliers of concrete admixtures and, when specified, is ...

How Does Silica Fume Work in Concrete?

When silica fume is added to concrete, initially it remains inert. Once portland cement and water in the mix start reacting with each other (hydrating), primary chemical reactions produce two chemical compounds: Calcium Silicate Hydrate (CSH), which is the strength producing crystallization, and Calcium Hydroxide (CH), a by-product also called free lime which is responsible for nothing much ...

Aug 01, 2015  While the presence of silica fume has little influence on C–S–H densities, the chemical composition is impacted. After 28 days of sealed hydration, the Ca/ (Si + Al) ratio of the C–S–H is 1.33 and the H 2 O/ (Si + Al) ratio is 1.10 when 10% of silica fume is added to the white cement.
