xorex steel fiber

For more effective concrete reinforcement, choose our fibers that are produced from low carbon cold drawn steel that meets ASTM A820 standards.  Our fibers are widely used for concrete mixing and more economical to use versus traditional reinforcement methods of rebar and mesh. 

 

  • • Our fibers comply with ASTM A820 requirements.
  • • Typical lengths: 1.5” and 2.0”(38mm and 50mm), but also can produce 0.75” and 2.5”.
  • • Commonly used to improve concrete toughness, shear strength, and impact resistance.
  • • Concrete reinforcement fibers reduce concrete cracking due to reduce shrinkage.
  • • Typical applications: Dams. Spillways, Bridge Girders. Piers, Locks. Tunnels, Airport Runways, Precast concrete, etc.
  • • Can be used in either wet or dry mix shotcrete.
  • • Our fibers reinforced concrete are less expensive than hand-tied rebar, while still increasing the tensile strength many times; shape, dimension and length of fiber are important to consider.
  • • A normal size fiber for European shotcrete (1 mm diameter, 0.5 mm length—steel) will increase the concrete tensile strength.
  • • Our fibers can only be used on surfaces that can tolerate or avoid corrosion and rust stains.
  • • Materials, mixing, and testing procedures should comply with the applicable sections of ASTM C 1116/C 1116M and ASTM C 1436.

Properties:

  • • Fiber Length 1.5” and 2.0” in (38 mm and 50 mm)
  • • Equivalent Diameter 0.045” (1.14 mm).
  • • Aspect Ratio 34 and 44
  • • Tensile Strength 140-180 Kpsi (966-1242 MPa)
  • • Deformation Continuously deformed circular segment
  • • Appearance Bright and clean carbon steel wire

    Packaging:

    • We can provide package according to our customers’ specifications. Can be packed in one-layer of plastic and two-layer paper bags also cardboard boxes or super sack.  The weight per bag or box can be 20kg or 25kg, super sack weights typically are 750 or 900kg or per customer’s request.
