Working with our fiber reinforcement suppliers, Cemstone’s RESOLVE Engineering Services Team welcomes the opportunity to assist you and your designer in replacing traditional reinforcing steel with Cemstone’s RESOLVE Fiber Matrix. This system of synthetic and steel fibers has been selected to offer superior performance when it comes to replacing welded-wire fabric and reinforcing bars for temperature and shrinkage crack control.

Cemstone offers unmatched experience, expertise and technologies to provide you with the right mix for your needs.

Microfiber M100 & F100

Micro-fiber reinforcement reduces plastic shrinkage crack formation, reduces plastic settlement cracking and improves the cohesion of the concrete mixture, all of which give you durable, low maintenance concrete.

Uses:
  • Commercial and residential exterior and interior slabs-on-ground   
  • Decorative concrete 
  • Pools and pool decks  
Benefits:
  • Excellent reduction in plastic shrinkage cracking  
  • Measurably reduces plastic settlement  

Macro 360FF

Fibrillated Macro Synthetic Fiber

Fibrillated Macro-fiber is a plastic shrinkage cracking reinforcement that acts as a replacement for light gauge welded-wire mesh. Macro synthetic fiber reinforcement reduces plastic settlement cracking and improves the cohesion of the concrete mixture, all of which give you durable, low maintenance concrete.

Uses:
  • Commercial and residential exterior and interior slabs-on-ground   
  • Toppings/overlays
Benefits:
  • Excellent reduction in plastic shrinkage cracking  
  • Measurably reduces plastic settlement  
  • Replacement for light gauge welded-wire mesh (6 x 6 W1.4 x W1.4), depending on the application 

Macro Matrix

Macro Synthetic Fiber

Like the placement of steel reinforcement, macro synthetic fibers can be placed in concrete to transfer post-crack stress, reduce crack widths, increase impact/abrasion resistance and generally improve the long-term performance of the slabs and walls. Macro synthetic fibers eliminates the need for welded-wire mesh (WWM) and small diameter reinforcing bars used as secondary reinforcement, depending on the application. 

Uses:
  • Industrial and warehouse floors
  • Commercial and residential exterior and interior slabs-on-ground    
  • Composite metal decks 
  • Pavements and bridge decks
  • Topping/overlays 
  • Used in Latitude – Cemstone’s Extended Joint Spacing System
Benefits:
  • Replaces shrinkage and temperature (secondary) reinforcement
  • Reduces construction time and overall labor and material costs 
  • Increases flexural toughness, impact and shatter resistance
  • Reduced crack width

Steel 5-25

Steel Fiber

Steel fibers can be used to replace secondary reinforcement within slabs and walls. In addition, certain applications allow steel fibers to replace primary reinforcement. For horizontal and vertical applications.

Uses:
  • Walls 
  • Foundations 
  • Paving
Benefits:
  • Increases tensile strength
  • Increases concrete strain capacity 
  • Decrease cracking width
  • Increases durability in slabs
  • Increases modulus of rupture
