Mineral Additives for Concrete
Mineral Additives make mixtures more economical, reduce permeability, increase strength, and influence other concrete properties. Mineral Admixtures affect the nature of the hardened concrete through hydraulic or pozzolanic activity. Pozzolans are cementitious materials and include natural pozzolans (such as the volcanic ash used in Roman concrete), fly ash and silica fume. They can be used with Portland cement, or blended cement either individually or in combinations.
