Macro/Micro Synthetic Fiber Blend
TUF-STRAND MAXTEN SUPERMIX is a macro/micro synthetic fiber blend successfully used as an alternative to steel fibers and welded wire mesh in a wide variety of secondary reinforcement applications. TUF-STRAND MaxTen SUPERMIX fibers comply with ASTM C1116, Standard Specification for Fiber Reinforced Concrete and Shotcrete, and are specifically used for the reduction of plastic shrinkage cracks, to improve impact, shatter and abrasion resistance, to increase fatigue resistance, to increase toughness of concrete and provide long term durability of concrete and cement based building products. Dosage rates will vary depending upon the reinforcing requirements and can range typically from 4.0 lbs/y³ to 6.0 lbs/y³ (2.4 kg/m³ to 3.6 kg/m³). This product has a minimum blend of 3 lbs/y³ (1.8 kg/m³) of macro synthetic fiber and 1 lb/y³ (0.6 kg/m³) of micro synthetic fiber. Other blend ratios of macro and micro fibers are available. TUF-STRAND MaxTen SUPERMIX synthetic micro/macro fibers can save time and money on construction projects by eliminating the purchase, storage, handling, cutting, placing, and waste of welded wire mesh. These fibers are chemically inert and will not corrode.
