MTL Commodities’s Micro Silica

WE ARE MTL COMMODITIES. WE SUPPLY MICRO SILICA (ALSO KNOWN AS SILICA FUME) PRODUCTS TO THE CEMENT/CONCRETE, CONSTRUCTION AND REFRACTORY INDUSTRIES.

Micro Silica is collected from the furnace filters in the production of silicon metal. One of the most common uses for silica fume is in concrete, which makes it extremely strong and durable.

We can deliver materials in woven polypropylene or paper bags direct either from our UK warehouse in Great Dunmow. Shipment quantities range from 25 Kg to 25,000 Kg.


Microfume Concrete

Microfume Concrete is widely used in concrete and fibre cement industries. In addition to its pozzolanic properties, Microfume Concrete is also a very good filler due to its particle size.

Microfume Hydraulic

Microfume Hydraulic is different due to its high CaO content, used in fast setting concrete. Concretes with Microfume Hydraulic have higher strength than the average at an early age (24h and 48h) and need less superplasticizer addition in the mix design.

Microfume Slurry

We recommend using Microfume Slurry in fibre cements and High Performance Concrete where its fineness and purity is beneficial. Due to the nature of this product it can only be delivered in full tanker loads.

Microfume Refractories

Microfume Refractories has a stable pH and a low impurity level and is perfectly adapted to the requirements of refractory castables. Its use improves the flow, the mechanical properties (especially hot strength), and durability (via permeability reduction).
