Concrete has low tensile strength and ductility. Adding reinforcement is necessary to resist stresses and strains in structural
members. World leading institutes such as the ACI and ASCE recommend using steel fiber as reinforced concrete to:
In this video, Dramix® inventor Ann Lambrechts explains Nick Glass from CNN, how she managed to increased concrete durability using steel fibers.
Compared to traditional reinforcement solutions,
steel fiber reinforcement is:
More durable concrete surface
Time saving construction
Lower installation and labor costs
(no cutting or welding)
Steel fiber reinforcement has been around since the 1970-ies and continues to evolve with time. The bents and hooks are
crucial to the fiber’s anchoring performance and subsequent concrete ductility.
These features, in combination with steel elongation, are the main-differentiators of our Dramix®
steel fiber concrete reinforcement series.
Unlike traditional reinforcement, Dramix® steel fiber concrete
reinforcement actively reinforce every part of the concrete structure, allowing them to detect small cracks immediately after they occur.
