Using fiber reinforcement in residential projects provides an economical way to take advantage of the best in concrete technology. Synthetic fibers, steel fibers and engineered blends of both materials can be used to improve everything from slabs, driveways, and patios to swimming pools, sidewalks, and decks. Fiber reinforcement is also ideal for use with insulated concrete forms (ICFs), providing homeowners with some of the most technologically advanced construction available today.
Concrete mixture that includes fibrous materials as an alternative to welded wire fabric for secondary reinforcement.
Commonly used in floor slabs, elevated metal pan decks and flat work. Commonly used in floor slabs, elevated metal pan decks and flat work. Also used in insulated concrete forms (ICFs) for homebuilding
Non-corrosive, improved impact, shatter and abrasive resistant; multidimensional reinforcement; always positioned in compliance with codes.
Reinforcement throughout the entire concrete section: By adding millions of fibers to the concrete mix, the concrete achieves three-dimensional reinforcement. Increased construction speed: By adding reinforcement to the concrete mix, construction is faster and labor costs are reduced.
No special equipment required: By adding fiber reinforcement in commonly used concrete mix designs and conventional concrete pumps, no additional equipment expenses are needed.
Fiber reinforcement also inhibits plastic shrinkage crack formation, reduces plastic settlement cracking, increases green strength, and improves the cohesion of the mix, all of which give you durable, low maintenance concrete.
