Durability of steel fibers

The reduction of joints, the speed in the placement and the improvements in the performance in concrete have led to the inclusion of steel fibers in the various types of pavement, due to its qualities, a sufficiently proven and attractive solution for the industry. Unlike a commonly reinforced pavement, the pavement reinforced with steel fibers perform a three-dimensional reinforcement function.  […]

Steel fibers with hooked ends – ZS/N

Steel fibers with hooked ends are filaments of steel wire (straight fibers with additional hooked ends) for reinforcement of concrete and mortar. For manufacturing steel fibers, we are using wires of different diameters deformed and cut to lengths.Steel fibers with hooked ends reinforcement is widely used as the main and unique reinforcing for industrial concrete floor slabs, shotcrete, prefabricated concrete […]

SPAJIC® Conditioned cut wire shots

CONDITIONED CUT WIRE SHOT (CCW) has had it’s sharp edges removed in a process called “conditioning.” Conditioned cut wire shot is used in shot blasting and many automotive and military shot peening applications. Spajic company also produces conditioned (G1, G2 and G3 type) cut wire shots in different sizes and hardness. Characteristics for conditioned cut wire shots as listed: – […]

Advantages of the fiber reinforced concrete

SFRC is generally used to inhibit cracking, improve resistance of impact, to resist dynamic loading and material disintegration. SFRC can be used without any other additional reinforcement in almost all applications where flexural stresses are not overwhelming like beams for instance. Our steel fibers, especially ZS/5 with high performance which they provide are used in tunnel engineering, hydro structures, airport […]

Dear readers, we hope you will enjoy this blog post in which we are going to introduce our new product. What is UHPC you may ask? UHPC – Ultra-High Performance Concrete is a cementitious, concrete material that has a minimum specified compressive strength with specified durability, tensile ductility and toughness requirements; fibers are generally included in the mixture to achieve […]

Steel fibers performance in concrete

Dear readers, welcome to another post with a bit more details about concrete reinforced with steel fibers. Regarding the type of reinforcement used, concrete reinforced with steel fibers has become a fundamental material in the construction of industrial floors, pavements, bridge decks, elements for the stabilization of slopes, tunnel linings, precast structural elements, vaults and refractories, among others. When steel […]

SPAJIC® Cylindrical cut wire shots

AS-CUT WIRE SHOT (CYLINDRICAL) still has the sharp corners from the cutting operation. As-cut wire shot is an effective cleaning abrasive but it isn’t suitable for shot peening applications since the sharp edges are potentially damaging to fatigue life. cylindrical shape with sharp edges mainly used for cleaning long service life standards: SRPS EN ISO 11125-1:2007; SRPS EN ISO11125-1:2005; DIN […]
