WIRAND® fibers eliminate need for steel reinforcement

August 1st, 2008 / By: / New Products

0808_PS4Problem: Placing typical steel reinforcement in concrete slab-on-grade industrial, commercial and high-performance floors takes time and is difficult to conform to construction drawings.

Solution: WIRAND® fibers are produced with low-carbon steel wire with high-tensile strength. Introducing WIRAND fibers into the concrete mix eliminates the need for common steel reinforcement, adds additional reinforcement and achieves better performance under strain. WIRAND also increases concrete’s impact resistance, prevents plastic shrinkage cracking and performs better in varied temperatures.
