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.  […]

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 […]

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 […]
