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 […]

SPAJIC Fortecrete150 – UHPC

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 […]

Rebar Corrosion in Concrete

Welcome to our new blog post! In this post, we will cover the topic ”Rebar corrosion in Concrete”. Chloride induced corrosion to reinforcement is the leading cause of deterioration and degradation of concrete structures. Under conditions of wetting and drying concrete draws in and absorbs water, moisture and contained salts which affect reinforcement close to the surface and result in […]

Fiber-reinforced Shotcrete

Dear readers, In this post we are covering the topic of fiber-reinforced shotcrete. A combination of sprayed concrete technique and steel fibers technology gives advantages when needed to place conventional reinforcement. The replacement of meshes by fibers generates time savings that are associated with the placement and fixation of the meshes. In addition, it allows significant savings in the amount […]

Steel fiber solution for UHPC

Dear readers, thank you for joining another blog post! In this topic we are going to cover one of the most important ingredients in UHPC mix – high strength steel fibers. UHPC – Ultra High-Performance Concrete is a type of new generation concrete that allows to design and produce complex forms of great resistance and, at the same time, very […]

Welcome to our first blog post!

Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) provides several advantages in terms of structural performance, construction practicality, speed of construction and cost reduction over conventional reinforced concrete. Structural Advantages– improves performance of concrete section under directtension, flexure, shear and torsion– increases toughness (ability to absorb energy after cracking)– increases fatigue endurance and impact resistance– enhances crack control– […]
