What is Alkali-Silica Reaction? Alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is a chemical reaction between the alkalis in portland cement and certain types of silica minerals present in some aggregates. The reaction product is a hygroscopic gel, which absorbs moisture and swells. Under certain circumstances, the formation of the gel can cause expansion and, eventually, cracking of the concrete.

Various types of aggregate undergo chemical reactions in concrete, leading to damaging expansive phenomena. The most common are those containing reactive silica, that can react (in the presence of water) with the alkalis in concrete (K 2 O and Na 2 O, coming principally from cement). Among the more reactive mineral components of some aggregates are opal, chalcedony, flint and strained quartz.
