Supplementary Cementitious Material (SCM) - Microsilica 600

Microsilica 600 is a highly reactive pozzolan and falls into the amorphous silica family of products but has significant advantages over silica fume.

Materials with pozzolanic properties such as Microsilica 600 contain reactive silica and alumina that will, in the presence of water and free lime, react to produce cementitious compounds.

Microsilica 600 meets the requirements detailed in AS/NZS3582.3. Microsilica 600 can be used to enhance a number of hardened concrete properties and is used to develop concretes that provide significant improvement in durability or strength.

The inclusion of 8% Microsilica 600 in combination with necessary minimum binder content and maximum water/cement ratios will meet the durability requirements for concrete detailed in the durability section of NZS3101 for marine and chemical attack applications. 

Supply

Microsilica 600 is available in multi walled paper sacks and in bulk bag.
