Steel fiber is a strong and versatile material that has many applications in construction. Steel fiber reinforced concrete is more durable, stronger, and crack-resistant than traditional concrete, making it ideal for high-stress applications such as bridges, tunnels, and industrial flooring. By adding steel fiber to concrete, builders can create structures that are more resilient, easier to maintain, and longer-lasting.
Concrete has been the building material of choice for centuries. It’s strong, durable, and relatively inexpensive compared to other building materials. However, like any material, it has its limitations. One of the biggest limitations of concrete is its tendency to crack under tension. This is where steel fiber comes in. Steel fiber is a reinforcing material that is added to concrete to improve its strength, durability, and resistance to cracking.
Steel fiber is a type of reinforcing material that is made from steel. It is typically added to concrete to improve its strength and durability. Steel fibers come in different shapes, sizes, and compositions, depending on their intended use. The most common types of steel fibers used in concrete are straight, hooked, and crimped fibers.
Properties of Steel Fiber
Steel fiber has several properties that make it an ideal reinforcing material for concrete. These properties can be categorized into mechanical and physical properties.
Types of Steel Fiber
Steel fibers are small, discrete pieces of steel that are added to concrete to improve its mechanical properties. There are several types of steel fibers available in the market, each with its unique characteristics and advantages.The steel fibers we can supply include:
Crimped Steel Fiber
Applications: Concrete products that require high impact resistance, such as airport pavements and bridge decks.
Hooked End Steel Fiber
Applications: Industrial flooring, tunnel linings, and precast concrete products.
Galvanized Steel Fiber
Applications: Precast concrete products, overlays, and bridge decks.
Stainless Steel Fiber
Applications: Concrete products that require high durability and resistance to environmental factors.
Micro Steel Fiber
