TamCem Micro Silica

TamCem Micro Silica is composed of silicon dioxide (SiO2), collected from silicon metal and ferrosilicon. TamCem Micro Silica will react with the Calcium Hydroxide from the cement, which will form more of the Calcium Silicate hydrate, increasing the strength of the concrete. Using Tamcem Micro Silica will also increase the durability of the concrete.

Key Benefits
  • Precast usage
  • Produces high early and higher ultimate compressive strengths.
  • Eliminates steam curing, saving on heating costs.
  • Sprayed concrete usage
  • Less material wastage and greater efficiency of product use.
  • High impermeability and significantly less rebound loss.
  • Protects reinforcing steel from corrosion.
  • Improved bonding strength.
  • Thicker applications with each nozzle pass and enhanced pumpability.
Typical Applications
  • High performance concrete
  • Precast concrete
  • Spray applied concrete
  • Concrete exposed to environmental and chemical attack
  • Marine concrete
  • Ready mix concrete for high strength concrete
