steel reinforcing fiber / for concrete
Concrete floors must satisfy extreme require- ments.On one hand,they must resist dynamic wheel loads,and,on the other,static rack loads and uniformly distributed loads.In addition they must also withstand the damaging effect of fork truck traffic and impact from falling loads or equipment.Steel fibre concrete,which is calculated as a homogeneous material,combines easy processing with high reliability.
BAUMIX steel fibres are added to the concrete during mixing as an additional aggregate.Steel fibre concrete is mixed with existing plant and used in many applications like:
monolithic industrial floor slabs on ground in:
road and motorways
runways,aprons and taxiways,
BAUMIX steel fibres are made of prime quality hard- drawn steelwire to ensure high tensile strength and close tolerances and have hooked ends which offer strong mechanical anchorage in the concrete.This leads to high crack resistance resulting in a high degree of toughness and fatigue resistance.Steel fibre concrete is more durable than plain concrete made from the same mix design.The fibres within the alkaline environment of the concrete are protected from corrosion.
