Fly Ash is the fine ash that is produced from at coal-fired power plants, which develops cementitious properties when it is mixed with cement & water. Fly ash improves overall quality & performance of concrete.
The product is widely used in the maximum regions of the world in order to increase the strength of concrete fly ash. Also, it is used to improve the workability of fresh concrete as well as reduce water demand, permeability & shrinkage of the product. In actual, fly ash is a waste product that would otherwise go to landfill. It can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of concrete. This is viewed increasingly as a key ingredient in low-carbon blended cement such CEM II.
Where Does Fly Ash Come From?
A by-product of coal-fired electric generating plants is Fly Ash. The coal is pulverized & blown into burning chambers for spontaneous combustion. The heavier ash particles fall to the bottom of the burning chamber & the lighter ash particles (fly ash) fly out with the exhaust gasses. Therefore, the term ‘fly ash’ comes from.
Before leaving the stack, the Fly Ash particles are removed & collected by electrostatic precipitators or other methods.

ASTM C618: Class F & C Fly Ash – Our company assures you uniform & high-quality products. There are two kinds of products of the combustion of coal in large power plants, i.e. Class F and Class C.
|Class F||It contains low lime content & a greater combination of silica, alumina & iron (greater than 70%) as compared to Class C fly ash.|
|Class C||Generally, it comes from coals that may produce an ash with highest lime content. The elevated CaO gives Class C unique self-hardening characteristics.|
