Silica Fume Silica Gel Composite Hose Superplasticizer

What is Silica Fume

Silica fume (also known as microsilica) is very fine noncrystalline silica by-product resulting from the reduction of high-purity quartz and carbon in electric arc furnaces during the production of elemental silicon or alloys containing silicon.

Silica Fume in Concrete

Silica fume can be used as a cement replacement to improve the properties of concrete. Since silica fume is collected from smelting silicon or manufacturing ferrosilicon alloys, its formation undergoes changes among three states of matter. ...

Silica Fume in Refractory Castables

The effect of silica fume on refractory castables Silica fume consists of ultra-fine spherical particles that can fill the pores between the particles in the castables. So the water consumption and porosity of the castables are both reduced...

Effects, and Precautions for Use of Silica Fume

About silica fume Silica fume is amorphous, powdered byproduct obtained from the smelting process of ferrosilicon, industrial silicon by a dust collector. The average particle size of silica fume is 0.1-0.15 μm, which is a few percent of t...
