Macro Fiber Floors
Jan 01, 2014 - Las Vegas, NV
There are two ways to effectively use synthetic macro fiber reinforcement for commercial and industrial floor slabs: 1. As an alternate to conventional temperature/shrinkage steel reinforcement at a calculated dosage, or 2. To replace the temperature steel and consider reduction of conventional control joints. In both cases, fibers represent a considerable time and labor savings during construction, and offer a tougher and more durable floor for the owner. The FORTA® Technical Department can supply steel-to-fiber dosage calculation reports for project submittals, and the FORTA® field-sales staff can assist during trials to add to the mixing, pumping, placing, and finishing comfort level. Video examples of successful FORTA-FERRO® macro fiber floor projects are available at the Central Hall FORTA® exhibit # 4235.
FORTA Corporation, the synthetic fiber reinforcement pioneer in 1978, has developed an entire family of fibers to offer a variety of concrete crack-controlling performance. The newest fiber technology is FORTA FERRO® - a long-length, high-strength, high-dosage macro fiber to allow for a higher replacement level of conventional temperature/shrinkage steel reinforcement. FORTA leads the market in technical and engineering project assistance, and offers a long history of project applications and successes.
