FiberForce 550 is a macro synthetic concrete fiber developed from a specific blend of polypropylene and polyethylene resins. FiberForce 550 has an optimized fibrillating pattern and is engineered to increase tensile capacity.
- ASTM C1116, Section 4.1.3 and Note 2
- ASTM D7508
- ANSI/SDI C-2011 and C-2017 – Shrinkage and temperature reinforcement alternative to welded wire reinforcing (WWR) for composite steel floor decks when used at a minimum dosage rate of 4 lbs. per cubic yard Section 2.4.B.13 (2011) and 2.4.B.15 (2017).
FiberForce 550 is packed in pre-weighed degradable bags. FiberForce 550 can be preloaded in empty ready-mix drums or added anytime during or after concrete is batched. Mix for 5 minutes at full charging speed (75-100 revolutions) to ensure complete dispersion of fibers. FiberForce recommends the utilization of the appropriate water reducing chemical admixture for any slump or workability modification that may be required with this technology.
