Slab on Grade is susceptible to damage due to abrasion; impact and cyclic traffic loading. Fibre reinforced concrete improves quality and durability of Slab on Grade.
- Temperature Distribution Steel: Provides three-dimensional and lasting reinforcement. Unlike steel rebar, Duracrete Fibre does not rust and cause concrete spalling and pavement deterioration. Reduces shrinkage cracking up to approximately 80%.
- Abrasion and Impact Resistance: Significant improvement in abrasion resistance as required for concentrated loads and dynamic heavy axle loads. Improves resistance to Impact forces up to 14 times more than plain concrete.
- Flexural Fatigue: Duracrete fibre improves flexural properties by up to 30%. FRC increases toughness, shear resistance and fatigue endurance.
- Cost Saving: Replace of distribution steel with Duracrete Fibre may provide 60% cost saving, approximately.
