Ultra Microsilica

Ultra Microsilica

Ultra Micro Silica is composed of silicon dioxide (Si02), collected from silicon metal and ferrosilicon. Ultra 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 Ultra Micro Silica will also increase the durability of the concrete.
