An award-winning 2012 expansion project for Clow Stamping Company included a 52,000 square-foot concrete slab on ground that needs to handle considerable rack and floor loading. Engineers calculated that a dosage of 7.5 lbs/cu. yd of FORTA-FERRO® 2 1/4" macro synthetic fiber would offer sufficient loading capacity and improved crack control for the 12-foot by 12-foot joint panels at a slab thickness of six inches. The choice to use macrofibers instead of standard rebar and matt reinforcement provided considerable savings on material and labor costs. Download a project case study.
