Steel fiber concrete reinforcement for pavements

steel fiber reinforced concrete pavements
The service-life and efficiency of heavy-duty pavements heavily depends on the strength and flatness of the concrete slab. Dramix® fiber reinforcement creates a robust and durable composite that provides long-lasting impact resistance, high load-bearing capacity, and advanced crack-control.

Challenging loads for maximum service life

To ensure continuous operations, heavy-duty pavements, as used at harbor shipyards, airport terminals, and other industrial applications, require high structural stability and little maintenance through service life. Dramix® concrete reinforcement consists of glued steel fiber bundles that feature tensile strengths of up to of 2300 N/mm², low elongation and innovative hooked ends. This results in long-lasting crack control that protects the concrete structure against repeated impact, heavy traffic, static and dynamic loading, and fatigue. The dense network of fibers makes the concrete less pervious to seawater, chemicals, and other corrosive substances. These elements combined to ensure that your heavy-duty pavements remain reliable and operational for decades

Smooth surfaces for easy navigation

Smooth surfaces for easy navigation  Dramix® steel fibers mix evenly with concrete, enabling the pouring of very large slab areas. By limiting joints, you create very flat pavements on which heavy industrial traffic and logistics technologies can easily move around. 

More durable concrete surface

Time saving construction

Lower installation and labor costs
