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