Crimped Steel Fiber blended with multilength fibrillated micro-synthetic fibers

PSI CRIMPED STEEL FIBER FB are low carbon, cold drawn steel wire fibers combined with 100% virgin multilength fibrillated polypropylene micro-synthetic fibers designed to provide concrete with plastic shrinkage crack protection, temperature and shrinkage crack control, enhanced flexural reinforcement, improved shear strength and increase the crack resistance of concrete. PSI Crimped Steel Fiber FB complies with ASTM C1116, Standard Specification for Fiber Reinforced Concrete and Shotcrete and ASTM A820, Type I, Standard Specification for Steel Fibers for Fiber Reinforced Concrete. This steel macro-fiber blend will also improve impact, shatter, fatigue and abrasion resistance while increasing toughness of concrete. Dosage rates will vary depending upon the reinforcing requirements and can range from 24 to 96 lbs/yd³ (14 to 57 kg/m³).

Features & Benefits
