Project Description

Client: Titan Constr. Location: TX Surface Area: .5 km

(Click the photos above.) Silica fume is added to cement concrete to improve its properties, in particular its compressible strength, bond strength, and abrasion resistance. These improvements stem from both the mechanical improvements resulting from addition of a very fine powder to the cement paste mix as well as from the reactions between the silica fume and free calcium hydroxide in the paste.

The Challenges

Research and development of silica fume have made it one of the world’s most valuable and versatile admixtures for concrete and cement products.

Technology in the various construction uses continues to develop with high-quality industrial and academic materials research.

TTR staff continuously update on the latest trends with on-going training courses and advanced understanding of applied materials science.
