Product description

Steel wire fibres are used to reinforce concrete where high energy absorption and toughness is required.

Its applications include industrial floors, tunnel linings, concrete piles, concrete pipes and shafts, precast concrete, fire- and seismic-resistant concrete structures. After adding steel wire fibres, brittle concrete becomes a reliably performing material with:

  • High strength properties
  • Highest toughness and ductility
  • Increased impact resistance
  • Increased seismic resistance

The fibres have high ductility and therefore high breaking resistance during handling and mixing operations. The fibre’s double end hook assures optimum anchorage in the concrete matrix, resulting in high pull-out resistance. Breakage of the crack-bridging fibres is prevented by the high initial tensile strength of the fibres’ raw material. Perfect workability in fresh concrete and highest performance in hardened concrete is assured by the fibres’ well-balanced geometry.

Economic benefits include reduced or replaced conventional reinforcement, reduced labour costs, reduced construction time and concrete savings.

Fibres are manufactured of hard-drawn steel wire according to ASTM A 820-96 Type I standard.
