The Manufacturing Process for SILICAWOOD® Mix
Silicawood Raw is to be considered as a light weight aggregate to be used in a conventional concrete mix batching process in 100% substitution of sand and gravel. It can be batched with ordinary Portland Cement ASTM-C150-Type I. and water.
The physical properties of density and strength of Silicawood Mix are determined, in part, by the proportions of the three key ingredients, water, cement, and Silicawood Raw. The ratio mix depends on several variables such as moisture of Silicawood Raw, the ambient conditions temperature, and humidity and require to be adjusted accordingly to Bbuilding lengthy experience and know to reach a workable Silicawood mix in all the different conditions possible
Due to the particular composition of Silicawood Mix the most suitable batching plant is a horizontal planetary mixer conventional used for prefab concrete manufacturing.
