Bedford Co. Agg Center
This project was originally spec’d to use 10 gauge welded wire reinforcement. Having to pump this into an existing structure with welded wire reinforcement on the ground created a lot of safety concerns. Using FiberForce 300 at a dosage rate of 1.5 lb/yd³ was the safe, cost-efficient, and time-efficient answer. The project did not have one crack in the 20,000 ft² slab that was poured all in one pour with a 4,000 ash mix on a 5 in slump using FiberForce 300 and was placed with a 31 m pump that had 180 ft of system.
