2. Longer lasting concrete elements
Dramix® enables you to build concrete elements with longer lifetimes.
In underground solutions, Dramix® fibers increase the service lifespan of concrete tunnels to no less than 120 years, thanks to optimal crack control and structural stability. It is no surprise that our tunneling and mining partners select Dramix® as the reinforcement material of choice.
A concrete floor reinforced with steel fibers is more durable and resistant to wear and tear than traditionally reinforced floors. This is particularly important in industrial flooring given the increased warehouse automation. Automated warehouse vehicles follow identical routes, creating more localized usage-patterns.
Precast concrete pipes reinforced with Dramix® steel fibers extend the lifespan of pipe systems by 15 to 20 years, as confirmed by wastewater treatment organizations.
