Fly Ash | Lafarge Canada

Fly ash is an extremely fine powder consisting of spherical particles less than 50 microns in size. Fly ash is one of the construction industry's most commonly used pozzolans. Pozzolans are siliceous or siliceous/alumina materials possessing the ability to form cementitious compounds when mixed with lime (calcium hydroxide, or Ca(OH) 2) and water. Fly Ash: Concrete Applications
