Silica Fume Slurry
ADMIX MS560 is a ready to use silica fume slurry modified with plasticizer which blocks porosities of concrete due to fineness of its particle size and results in production of dense concrete with low permeability. Due to practical difficulties of using silica fume powder in job site, always use of slurry form is recommended.
ADMIX MS560 can be used for producing high quality and durable concrete in aggressive environments, as it reduces permeability of concrete besides increasing mechanical strengths. Also the concrete containing silica fume slurry shows better abrasive resistance. Some of the usages are in following concretes
– Concreting in aggressive environments such as Persian Gulf areas.
– Producing high strengths concrete.
– Concrete for piles and decks of bridges in salty earth of deserts.
– Flooring in industrial areas, petrochemicals and refineries.
– Loading and car refueling platforms.
– Power plants, generators and turbines installation areas.
– Hangers, runways and helicopter pads.
Advantages: ADMIX MS560 contains water reducing admixture which improves workability of concrete but for production of high performance concretes which water cement ratio is calculating at lowest level, using superplasticizer is essential to provide workability. By using this product in concrete, a suitable coating forms on steel bars which protect them from ingress of chloride and corrosion.
Appearance: Dense slurry
Density: Approx.1.4 g/cm³

Method of use
ADMIX MS560 is supplied as a ready to use product and can be added in each stages of concrete production. The best adding time is when 70% of water is mixed or along with gagging water. The content of packages is pre-weighted and can easily be added to the mix. Never add the product to dry materials.
Actual dosage should be determined by designer or consultant depending on mix design requirement. Authorized dosage rate in concrete is according to the below table:
|ADMIX MS560 Sub product||Dosage (cement weight)||PCE Compatibility||PNS Compatibility||Ligno Sulfonate Compatibility|
