White Silica Fume for Stronger, Brighter, Concrete
What Is It?
BriteFume™ is a white amorphous silica fume for the production of high performance concrete. To see BriteFume's technical data sheet, click on the following link: BriteFume Technical Data
Why Silica Fume?
Silica fume consists primarily of amorphous (non-crystalline) silicon dioxide (SiO2). Its individual particles are extremely small, approximately 1/100th the size of an average cement particle. It therefore effectively fills in empty pores in the cement and helps produce a stronger, more compact material. It also provides significant improvements in the permeability, abrasion resistance, and chemical resistance of concrete. It reacts with the cement paste to form additional strong Calcium Silicate Hydrate (CSH).
What Makes BriteFume™ Unique?
To quote Mark Celebuski of Trinic, LLC, who has tested and used BriteFume™ extensively, "Not all silica fumes are created equal. BriteFume™ is many steps ahead of the game with its white color and ability to add substantial strength to concrete mixtures."
Concrete producers generally replace 5 to 10% of portland cement mixtures with BriteFume™ to achieve optimum performance.
