Batimix Silica Fume DG3-P

Silica fume for shotcreting

Description

Batimix Silica Fume DG3-P is a powder silica fume pozzolanic additive used in dry-mix shotcrete applications.

Main Purpose

When added to the shotcreting mix, the ultra-fine particles of Batimix Silica Fume DG3-P significantly improve the particle packing by physically filling the voids in the cement paste. This leads to more densified shotcrete skeleton with reduced level of bleeding. On the other hand, this product reacts chemically with the calcium hydroxide present in the cement paste, yielding a calcium silicate hydrate gel that significantly enhances strength, water/chloride impermeability, and durability.

Applications using Batimix Silica Fume DG3-P include all types of high strength and specialty shotcreting and repair applications.

Features

Shotcrete prepared with Batimix Silica Fume DG3-P are characterized by the following:

In the plastic state:

  • Better cohesiveness with less bleeding and segregation

In the hardened state:

  • Increased compressive and flexural strengths at all ages
  • Greatly reduced permeability against water and aggressive chemicals
  • Increased resistance to abrasion and erosion
  • Improved durability and better surface quality

Dosage

5 to 12% of the cement weight

Packaging

  • 25 KG Bag
  • 50 Kg Bag
  • Bulk
