Chapter 3 - Obtaining Silica-Fume Concrete
Proportioning SFC

Previous Next
The Silica Fume Association has prepared a table with starting mixtures for a variety of applications. This table provides recommended cementitious materials contents and water-cementitious materials ratios. This information will be enough to get you started when proportioning concrete for a specific application.

The table may be downloaded in Microsoft Excel format by Clicking Here, or you may view the tables online by clicking on the links below:

Recommended Starting Silica-Fume
Concrete Mixture Proportions for Various Applications

REMINDER: The mixture proportions and concrete properties achieved that are shown in this table are to be used to develop concrete mixtures using your project materials. The results that you achieve may or may not be the same as those shown in the table. Once you have made and tested concrete mixtures using these starting proportions, it will be necessary to adjust the mixtures to achieve the results required for your project.
