E.M.MICROSILICA

Amorphous (non-crystalline) silicon dioxide (SiO2)

 

E.M.MICROSILICA is a very fine, gray powder with highly active pozzolanic properties. E.M.MICROSILICA can be used in addition of cement or as replacement of a part of cement content. It has to be mentioned that E.M.MICROSILICA is composed of amorphous silica produced by electric arc furnaces as a byproduct of the production of elemental silicon or ferrosilicon alloys.

It meets the requirements of the following standard:

ASTM C 1240, ISIRI 13278

DOSAGE

Depending on concrete mix design (sizes and types of aggregates, cement content, water/cement ratio, ambient temperature and concreting conditions), a dosage of between 7 and 12 percent by weight of cement or cementitious material is recommended. For use with other range of dosage, contact ABADGARAN Technical Services Department.

 

NOTE: Due to water absorption of E.M.MICROSILICA, it should be used with plasticizer admixtures. Otherwise it causes cracks and reduces the efficiency of the concrete.

 

 

DIRECTION OF USE

E.M.MICROSILICA can be added to the concrete by one of the following procedures:

1- It can be mixed with other dry components of the mixture, especially cement, before addition to the mixer.

2- It can be mixed with sufficient water, and be added to the mixer in slurry form. In this case the water content of slurry should be considered as a part of mixing water.

Silica fume has not been classified for hazardous physicochemical properties under the Globally Harmonized System (GHS). 

No classification for health and environment hazards. The dust from silica fume may cause non-specific mechanical irritation to the eyes and respiratory tract. Use an approved NIOSH dust respirator with a minimum N95 rating. It should not be swallowed and contact with skin and eyes. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water. E.M.MICROSILICA is not flammable.
