Steel Fiber

Steel Fibers are Short Discrete lenghts of steel which can be dispersed or mixed in fresh concrete to Form steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC)

Summary Of Steel Fibres

  • Fibres increases productivity by eliminating the process of laying wire mesh.
  • Fibres increases the quality of slabs in terms of less shrinkage cracks and better impact and fatigue resistance
  • Fibres contributes to sustainable construction by reducing the usage of concrete and steel

Comparison Between Steel Fiber & Wire Mesh

Steel Fiber Wire Mesh
 3 Dimensional Reinforcement   2 Dimensional Reinforcement  
 Always placed correctly   Difficult to place correctly
 Reinforces against shrinkage cracking  Controls Cracks once they have occurred 
 Reduces Bleeding & Settlement.   Induced Joints recommended at 10m Centers
 Improves Impact & Abrasion Resistance.   
 Provides Shatter & Spalling Resistance  
 Reduces Permeability   
 Improves Freeze/Thaw Resistance.   
 Provides Resistance to Explosive Spalling  
 Induced Joints recommended at 6m Centers
