Steel fibers

 

In the 1950s a Romanian started researching concrete reinforcement and his findings have rapidly changed the field of construction. Steel fibers are widely used across Europe in every major construction project (such as harbors, tunnels, highways, dams etc.). In Romania, steel fibers began being used in construction after the Revolution of 1989, at first exclusively in projects funded or implemented by foreigners. Nowadays, Romania has three major steel fiber producers and RomFracht is proud to be one of them.

The advantages of using steel fibers are great and may lead to major money savings as well as a better concrete reinforcement. It is a better and stronger dispersed reinforcement, much superior to the classic concrete steel or mesh reinforcements.

 

Advantages:

- dispersed reinforcement (it reinforces every cm of concrete);

- logistics (it requires a smaller amount of product than concrete steel or steel mesh);

- manipulation (the reinforcement process can be done either in a concrete station or in a concrete mixing truck);

- it adds to the qualities of the concrete (elasticity, endurance etc.).

Fibers are slowly starting to replace the classical reinforcement made with steel bars or welded mesh.
For example, steel fibers provide with lower costs for labor and smaller prices per project, due to their quality and the small product amount needed to get a strong and safe disperse reinforcement.
Romfracht produces several types of fibers, with three main applications:

  • Fibers for disperse reinforcement - FORTA FERRO and STEEL FIBERS (they replace steel bars and welded mesh);
  • Fibers for screeds (for reinforcement and thermal control): SUPER NET, ECONO NET, ULTRA NET (These can completely replace the welded mesh for screeds ranging from 1 cm to 10 cm);
  • Fibers that eliminate the microscopic cracks in any type of concrete: RAWWHITE fibers. These fibers are excellent for use with plasters. It is highly recommended that you use these fibers with reinforcement fibers or screed fibers.
