Steel Fibre

Steel Fibers are thin, short strands of steel that are added to fresh concrete during mixing. They are created through a process of deforming cold drawn steel wire and can be designed for use in concrete products as a primary reinforcement material. Steel Fibers are available in both collated and loose versions and are made from stainless steel to resist corrosion.
Steel fibers are typically produced with diameters ranging from 0.5mm to 1.0mm and lengths of approximately 25mm to 60mm. However, we offer customized steel fibers with various sizes, diameters, and aspect ratios to meet the specific requirements of our clients. The selection of the steel fiber type depends on the intended application. These fibers are typically used as reinforcement materials for shotcrete, pavements, concrete overlays, and precast components.

Steel fibers offer numerous benefits such as;

  • Better Crack Resistance
  • Higher Tensile Strength (resistance to breaking under pressure)
  • Higher Flexural Strength ( the material's ability to resist deformation under load
  • Enhanced Fatigue Strength (the maximum stress level that a material can endure)
  • Greater Resistance To Spalling (chipping off of a material's surface due to stress)
  • Durability
  • Good Impact Resistance

  • Using steel fibers can result in significant cost savings, along with faster construction, reduced material usage, and lower labor costs.We at Precision Drawell are committed to offering excellent technical assistance so that the customers can achieve optimum benefits.

    Features of Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC)

    • Flexural Strength: Flexural bending strength can be increased by up to 3 times more compared to conventional concrete.
    • Fatigue Resistance: Almost 1 1/2 times increase in fatigue strength.
    • Heavy Impact Resistance: Greater resistance to damage in case of a huge impact.
    • Permeability: The material is less porous.
    • Abrasion Resistance: More effective composition against abrasion and spalling.
    • Shrinkage: Shrinkage cracks can be eliminated.
    • Corrosion: Corrosion may affect the material but it will be limited in certain areas.

    Types of Steel Fibre

    • Hooked End Steel Fibres Loose Type (Loose Steel Fiber)
    • Hooked End Steel Fibres Glued Type (Glued Steel Fiber)
    • Galvanised Hooked End Steel Fibre (Steel Fiber)
    • Stainless Steel Fibres ( Hooked end as well as crimped)
    • Micro Steel Fibre
    • Polypropylene Fibre (PP Fibre)

    Toughcrete is cold drawn loose Steel Fibre made using premium quality low content carbon steel for use along with concrete. Toughcrete is discrete (loose) in nature and can be blended with concrete in small quantities. It is evenly scattered within the concrete blend to achieve progressed mechanical properties such as fatigue tolerance, ductility, high flexural strength and impact defiance. Compliant with ASTM A820 standard, Toughcrete proves to be a well-founded and economical solution suitable for low and medium dosages in concrete reinforcement applications. Toughcrete can be manufactured in various forms such as Flat Crimped, Round Crimped and Hooked End.

    Application of ToughCrete Steel Fibre

    • Factory & Warehousing flooring
    • Foundation slabs, roads, bridges, and airport runways
    • Mine roof support
    • Manhole covers
    • Slope stabilization
    • Pre cast for tunnel linings
    • Pre cast walls
    • UHPC Concrete

    Toughcrete+ is a glued form of Steel Fibres. Glued Steel Fibres are defined as loose hooked finish fibres affixed together to form bundles. These hooked ends grip into the concrete, allowing the stress to be transferred and dispersed evenly and effectively. Toughcrete+ is manufactured by mechanically drawing low carbon steel wire rods repeatedly until the desired thickness is achieved. The solitary fibres are adhered together with the help of a water-soluble glue, to prevent the bunching of fibres during the process of concrete mixing.
