Fiber Reinforcement Saves Time & Labor

Fiber reinforced concrete is a common addition to concrete because it can help to reduce cracks, increases the impact resistance, and increase the concrete strength in certain applications. Countless numbers of fibers are uniformly distributed in all directions throughout the concrete mix to provide top-to-bottom, side-to-side, uniform micro-reinforcement. These are added at the batch plant and can save time, energy and labor cost compared to other common reinforcement options.

Fiber is an easy way for an engineer to specify reinforcement compared to traditional solutions like rebar. In most cases, adding fiber won’t affect the mix design, additives within a concrete mix, or the pumpability of the material; additionally, placing and set times remain unchanged. If you factor in all of the reasons above and also consider that finishing fiber reinforced concrete is often no different from other options, you can see that fiber saves time and labor.

Fiber usage in concrete can greatly reduce permeability – up to 80% — lessening the passage of water and de-icing salts that cause rebar corrosion problems. By offering a variety of options, we can provide a product that won’t rust or stain surfaces, is non-corrosive, and also alkali-resistant.


Microsynthetic

When concrete is first placed it is in a plastic state. At this time, concrete has no compressive, flexural, or tensile strength. As the cement goes through its hydration process various factors can cause a crack to form. In an effort to reduce this issue, micro synthetic fiber reinforcement can be added to act as a net within the slab of concrete and offers additional relief to the concrete as it cures. Different jobs require different dosages. An engineering evaluation is recommended. Consult the fiber manufacturer for more information on specific products as it is the customer’s responsibility to specify types and dosages.


Steel

Steel fiber offers many of the same benefits as blended macro fiber reinforcement. At high doses, steel fiber can also offer increased load capacities. Steel fiber often comes in various shapes and lengths. Different jobs require different dosages. An engineering evaluation is recommended. Consult the fiber manufacturer for more information on specific products as it is the customer’s responsibility to specify types and dosages.


Macrosynthetic

Macro-synthetic fiber is a high strength blend of fiber reinforcement that can provide enhanced crack-containment, as well as impact and abrasion resistance. At higher doses, blended macro fiber may begin to replace welded wire mesh and rebar. Different jobs require different dosages. An engineering evaluation is recommended. Consult the fiber manufacturer for more information on specific products as it is the customer’s responsibility to specify types and dosages.
