ADICON is a organic Silica Fumes, used for high strength and light weight concrete. There is a growing demand for amorphous silica in the production of special cement and concrete mixes, high performanceconcrete, high strength, avoid cracks, low permeability concrete for use in construction, bridges, marine environments etc. This market is presently filled with Silica fume being imported from China and Norway. Due to the limited supply the demand being high, the price of silica fume has gone upto US $
600/Ton in India.With the addition of ADICON SILICA weight density of concrete reduces by 75-80%.Thus, ADICON SILICA with cement concrete can be effectively used as light weight concrete for the construction of structures where the weight of structure is of supreme importance. The use of ADICON SILICA in concrete leads to around 8-12% saving in material cost. So, the addition of ADICON SILICA in concrete helps in making an economical concrete. The Compressive Strength will increase with the addition of ADICON SILICA. This also considerably reduces the water absorption of concrete.Thus, concrete containing ADICON SILICA can be effectively used in places where the concrete can come in contact with water or moisture. ADICON SILICA has the potential to act as an admixture which increases the strength, workability & pozzolanic properties of concrete.
