Adding Fiber to Concrete

Fiber Reinforced Concrete in San FranciscoAlthough commercial concrete in San Francisco is strong on its own, in certain cases it requires extra reinforcement; such cases include concrete constructions that will see a substantial amount of weight or traffic as well as those that spread over large areas. In these cases, concrete reinforcing fibers can bolster the integrity of the finished product.

A concrete contractor will start the process by mixing a batch of low slump concrete and laying down a small layer around the bottom and sides of the form. The concrete company will then use a concrete mixer to mix the reinforced concrete and then introduce chopped glass fibers and acrylic polymer emulsion. The mixture will be complete when enough water is added that it remains thick but can be poured. Your concrete contractor will then cover the reinforced concrete with the initially mixed low slump concrete and then level the construction off at the top of the form. You will then be left with a stronger material that does not sacrifice flexibility, allowing for a longer and more prosperous working life.
