Sustainable Precast Concrete

Silica Fume Silica fume is a waste product recovered from the reduction of high-purity quartz with coal in electric furnaces in the production of silicon and ferrosilicon alloys. Silica fume improves the quality, strength and durability of concrete by making the concrete much less permeable and more resistant to corrosion of the steel ...

Influence of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs ...

2013-1-1  Influence of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) on moisture transfer properties of concrete. The durability of cement-based materials is greatly influenced by the transport properties of the concrete, mainly by the difficulty that aggressive agents (chlorides, sulphates, etc.) have in penetrating the porous network of the concrete.

SCM basics EcoSmart Concrete

Supplementary cementing materials (SCMs) are materials that when used with Portland cement contribute to the properties of the hardened concrete through hydraulic or pozzolanic activity or both. The most commonly used SCMs are fly ash, ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) and silica fume. The proper use of SCMs help produce more durable ...

Sustainable Precast Concrete

SCMs work with cement to bind the aggregates and other concrete ingredients, and can improve concrete’s strength and durability. SCMs can fill the pores in concrete making the resulting mix more resistant to chlorides and sulphates. Light colored SCMs such as white silica fume or metakaolin are used for architectural face mixes.

Frequently Asked Questions - PCI

Precast concrete's fresh and in-place performance can improve when several common industrial by-products are added. Fly ash, slag, and silica fume, which would otherwise go to landfills, can be incorporated into concrete as supplementary materials. These by-products can also reduce the amount of cement that is used in concrete.
