I will definitely do that. I was hoping to find pure quartz but might use pea gravel instead.
Your sizing theory paper really gains importance here- my test shows that vibrocompaction is absolutely crucial and for that we need tight packing!
Greybeard also posted something on this topic, so I thank you both. I need to get my math straight or else...
Good to hear from you.
Thanks for the mixing tips!
Welcome to the thread.
Polymer concrete does have some shrinkage and is probably better suited for filling weldments- we're trying to reverse engineer the man made granite. Or the newer product known as Quartz/Epoxy composite which can rival cast iron.
I appreciate the effort.
2.9 ksi would be awesome given the poor mixing technique and massive air entrapment. Or maybe it's 0.29
That would really burst my bubble lol..
I'll hit The Cary Co, they sell IMSIL® microcrystalline silica fillers with average particle size 2.1 micron and surface area 2.0 m^2/g
