Description of Material
 
Dramix® steel fibres, from industry specialist Bekaert, have set a new standard for concrete reinforcement with their unique combination of flexibility and cost-efficiency.Dramix® is a cold drawn steel wire fibre with hooked ends for optimum anchorage.What you get from Dramix® reinforced concrete is ductility and high load bearing capacity. On top of that, you’ll find a quick and easy way to an efficient and cost effective solution.
 
Applications of Dramix RC-80/60-BN
 
Warehouses Shopping Malls
       
Production Facilities Convention centers
       
Industrial Slabs Tunnelling applications
 
 
 
Dramix® glued together in bundles:
 
is the only guarantee for a homogeneous distribution.
   
allows the use of fibres with high l/d ratio.
   
can easily be added in the batching plant or in the truck mixer.
Dramix® steel wire for high tensile strength.
Mechanical anchorage (hooks) at the ends for optimal pull-out resistance.

Dramix® Technical & Economic Advantages
 
The use of Dramix® reinforced concrete reduces the construction time of the floor compared to mesh reinforcement.
   
The floor thickness can be reduced by using Dramix® steel fibres.
   
Dramix® steel fibres with a high l/d ratio offer the most economic solution compared to other types of steel fibres.
   
A Dramix® steel fibre floor offers the best cost/performance ratio.
   
Approx 8-22 % Saving per M ^2 of a floor ( Depends on Cost of concrete, Steel Prices)
   
An increase in load bearing capacity due to the redistribution of stresses.
   
Reinforcement throughout the full depth offers excellent crack - control.
   
Optimal resistance against impact and dynamic loads.
   
Joint spacings can considerably be increased.
   
Phenomenal increase in post crack strength.
   
No labor involvement to store and handle reinforcement steel at job site.
   
Increase in load bearing capacity due to redistribution of stresses.
   
Drastic Improvement in fatigue resistance.
   
Avoids wastage of steel reinforcement providing and an increased economy rate of 5 to 10%.
 
 
 
Conclusions
 
Dramix® Steel fibres offer the same load bearing capacity as double mesh.
   
Same deformation as a double mesh floor.
   
No time consuming placing of the mesh.
   
Reinforcement always in the right place.
