Concrete is a combination of several ingredients, proper selection of each material makes a better concrete. Proper percentage and right ratio are key factors for approved Concerete Mix Design.
Durability, Strength, Workability, Workability Consistency, Placeability, Pumpability are to be considered while designing.

When properly incorporated into the concrete mix, Arabian Microsilica will help to reduce column size / slab thickness / concrete quantity, thus reducing significant quantities of steel, aggregates, cement, admixtures, water, manpower, machinery etc. This will help to complete the project faster and to reduce the total cost of projects, while increasing the maintenance free service life of prestigious projects.
Case study shows the net savings on a particular tower project (3000 t of rebar and 7650 m3 of concrete was saved). Similar savings have been recorded on a number of different projects around the world - including shotcrete work, bridges and parking units.
Microsilica for High Strength and Durable Concrete, A pozzolanic component of concrete, microsilica is a fine, amorphous silicon dioxide (SiO2) powder. Concrete's strength, durability, and impermeability are increased when pozzolanic cement components combine with calcium hydroxide to produce additional hydration products.
There are various methods for incorporating microsilica into concrete. It can be mixed into the concrete directly or pre-blended with cement. The required concrete properties will influence the amount of microsilica added to concrete. Concrete that requires high endurance will require a higher dosage of microsilica than concrete that demands high early strength.
