    Micro Silica (Silica Fume): Production & Applications

    Aug 31, 2019 Summing up, Micro silica or silica fume is a good pozzolanic material which increases the strength and durability of concrete. It decreases the voids, capillaries and makes a dense concrete matrix. As a byproduct, silica fume is used to make green concrete and leads to sustainable development. It is also used in different types of construction
