Abstract: This is an experimental research on mechanical properties of alccofine- (Alccofine 1203 is a specially processed product based on high glass content with high reactivity obtained through the process of controlled granulation. The raw materials are composed primary of low calcium silicates) on high strength concrete of grade M60. Concrete attains high strength at a very early age, due to the presence of alccofine material. The mechanical properties studied here are compressive strength on concrete cubes at 3,7,14 and 28 days of water curing and flexural strength on prisms at 7 and 28 days of water curing. It is observed from the results that the alccofine material increases the strength (both in compression and in flexure) to a large extent at 10% replacement level of cement.
