Toughcrete/Toughcrete+(Steel Fibre) for Precast Products

Due to its inherent qualities, SFRC (Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete) is being increasingly recognized and utilized in manufacturing of precast concrete products worldwide. SFRC helps designers not only in reducing thickness of the sections but also design more complex shapes of precast elements. Its applications are varied and cover entire gamut of precast products.

Addition of Toughcrete or Toughcrete+(steel fiber) to concrete for precast products helps in improving the mechanical properties of concrete, thereby improving their overall performance as well as service life.


Benefits of Toughcrete & Toughcrete+ in Precast Products

  • Improved compressive strength
  • Improved tensile strength
  • Improved sheer & torsion strength
