With durability and sustainability requirements becoming ever more demanding – Elkem Microsilica®
will continue to be at the heart of concrete innovation.
Bridges in sea water
Many of the world’s longest sea bridges use Elkem Microsilica® in the concrete mix to ensure durability and long service life. Examples include the 32 km East Sea Bridge, Shanghai, the Tsing Ma Bridge, Hong Kong and the Storebelt Link in Denmark.
Elkem Microsilica® reduces the permeability of concrete, increasing its resistance to sulfates, chloride ingress and reinforcement corrosion.
