4 ways to tell it might be time to implement steel fibers in your concrete

1. Cracks in the concrete Cracking is generally the first sign of distress in concrete. Cracking can occur in both hardened and fresh, plastic, concrete as a result of volume changes and repeated loading. The cracks make the concrete and the structure more vulnerable to external effects and can immediately reduce the mechanical resistance of the structure. Cracks reduce the ability […]

Steel fibers market

Steel fibers exhibit superior properties of tensile strength, shear strength, crack resistance, durability and corrosion resistance. Thus steel fibers are mainly used in reinforcement of the concrete to overcome the problem of concrete brittleness as well as to provide a better finish. The global steel fiber market is valued at USD 1732.5 million in 2019. The market size will reach […]

SPAJIC® certification

Dear readers, We hope you are all doing well. In today’s topic we would like to go over the new and updated certificates we have got for our products. Let’s begin with EN ISO 9001:2015 certificate. ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization: – needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
