Use steel fibre as an alternative to steel mesh in concrete on grade.
Engineered designs for large jointless concrete pours.
PERMAFORCE is a 38mm steel fibre for concrete, recommended for industrial applications as superior to mesh.
Wire Crimped Steel fibre is made of low carbon cold drawn steel and has a minimum tensile strength of over 700Mpa. The fibre contains deformations that run the full length of the fibre and give an incredible mechanical bond to the concrete matrix. PERMAFORCE fibre provides a uniform distribution of reinforcement throughout the concrete that increases the tensile strength, impact resistance, shear strength, and ductility of the concrete.
No sophisticated or expensive equipment is required to achieve uniform, ball free distribution of PERMAFORCE fibre in the concrete matrix. The undulations along the fibre length provide mechanical anchorage to the concrete, enhancing post first-crack strength.
PERMAFORCE fibre contains deformations that run the full length of the fibre giving an excellent mechanical anchorage to the concrete matrix increasing first crack resistance. These fibres will also increase the impact and abrasion resistance of the slab
Possibilities of wider joint spacings giving larger sawcut free slabs. Save on joint forming and maintenance costs along with removing saw cut costs and long term maintenance.
Substantially speeds up construction and reduces labour time by completely eliminating the need for steel mesh reinforcement. The possibilities of discharging directly from the ready-mix truck also has potential reduction or elimination of pumping costs.
