SILICA FUME TECHNICAL DATA SHEET
SILICA FUME is a very fine pozzolanic material, composed of amorphous silica produced by electric arc furnaces as a byproduct of the production of elemental silicon or ferro silicon a1loys.
SILICA FUME can be used in a variety of applications such as concrete, grouts, mortars, fibre cement products, refractory oil/gas well cements, ceramics, elastomer, and polymer applications.
SILICA FUME is produced in conformance with the ASTM C1240 specifications. The quality is contro1led and monitored throughout the entire production process to ensure that it meets or exceeds specification requirements.

MECHANISM OF SILICA FUME’S POZZOLANIC REACTION IN A CEMENTITOUS SYSTEM
SILICA FUME in contact with water goes into solution within an hour. The silica in solution forms an amorphous silica rich, Ca poor, gel on the surface of the silica fume particles and agglomerates. After time the silica rich, Ca poor, coating dissolves and the agglomerates of silica fume reacts with free lime (CaOH2) to form calcium silicate hydrates (CSH). This reaction is called the pozzolanic reaction.
SILICA FUME should be kept dry out of weather and the elements.
SAFETY AND HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
SILICA FUME is generally considered a nuisance dust. Use and handling of silica fume does not represent a health risk when normal safety rules are observed. Direct contact may cause irritation of eyes. Prolonged contact may cause skin irritation. Inhalation may cause respiratory irritation resulting in coughing and shortness of breath. This product may be harmful if swallowed. Do not get in eyes and avoid prolonged skin contact. Do not take internally. Wash thoroughly with water after handling.
