Intermixed Concrete Enhancer, Powder Form
MAG-SIL™ is a patent pending and revolutionary powdered concrete enhancer manufactured by International Chem-Crete Company of Richardson, Texas. MAG-SIL™ is the latest addition to the family of dual crystallization products for improving the engineering properties and durability of Portland cement concrete (PCC). This technological advancement, developed by Mr. Radi Al-Rashed of International Chem-Crete has been proven effective in laboratory-based studies as well as field trials.
MAG-SIL™ can be added to the concrete mix at the time of batching similar to other powdered supplemental cementitious materials (SCMs) such as fly ash, ground granulated blast furnace slag and silica fume. The materials can also be incorporated into the Portland cement at the point of manufacture. Regardless to the method of incorporation, extensive testing has clearly shown the performance benefits including improvements to the compressive and flexural strength of the PCC, better workability, decreased permeability, reduced alkali silica reactivity (ASR) potential, decreased chloride intrusion, lesser potential for drying shrinkage cracking and others.
