DE Fiberworks - Company Information

 

 

DE Fiberworks, LLC was founded to provide to the best fiber reinforced concrete solution that creates long-lasting durable concrete for your next project. To meet this goal, DE Fiberworks works closely with our partners in the concrete industry to ensure we will meet or exceed your expectations.  DE Fiberworks serve clients in Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Western Illinois.


DE Fiberworks has over 25 years of experience in the concrete industry and understand the challenges associated with concrete construction.  We are professionals that are dedicated to providing quality products and superior customer service that others are unable or unwilling to provide.


We are dedicated to our Ready Mixed Concrete Customers who deliver the best fiber reinforced concrete solutions available in today’s market.  The partnership between DE Fiberworks and our Ready Mixed Concrete Customers is the key to our success as we offer the best fiber solution for your concrete application every time.


DE Fiberworks is an independent fiber representative for industry leading fiber manufacturers.  DE Fiberworks have developed partnerships with innovative fiber manufacturers that have the most technologically advanced concrete reinforcing products available.  Together, we offer experienced technical support to provide alternative solutions to traditional welded wire fabric (WWF) and rebar reinforcement for many concrete applications.  All of our products meet ASTM compliance guidelines.


DE Fiberworks offers a complete line of fiber reinforcement solutions that include:

 

  • Microsynthetic Fibers

  • Macrosynthetic Fibers

  • Blended Fibers

  • Steel Fibers

  • Specialty Fibers

 

At DE Fiberworks, our partnership extends to General Contractors, Concrete Contractors, Engineers, Architects, Contracting Authorities, and Owners.  We work closely with these groups to provide education and knowledge transfer about the benefits, advantages and features of fiber reinforced concrete.  We offer many services including fiber reinforced value-engineering proposals, mix designs, slab designs, attend pre-construction meetings, and AIA approved lunch and learn programs.

Concrete is widely recognized as an extremely versatile, cost-effective construction material?

 

Concrete is widely recognized as an extremely versatile, cost-effective construction material. Yet it is also beset with some drawbacks that are inherent to its composition.  By generally accepted engineering standards, concrete is relatively brittle and lacks ductility.  Intertwined with these problems is concrete’s propensity to crack in both its plastic (early-age) and hardened (long-term) state.  Early-age cracks are microscopic fissures caused by the intrinsic stresses created when the concrete settles and shrinks over the first 24 hours after being placed.  Long-term cracking is in part caused by the drying shrinkage that transpires over time.  In either case, these cracks can jeopardize the overall integrity of the concrete and not allow it to maintain – or possibly ever attain – its maximum performance capability.

 

This is the basic reason reinforcement in concrete is required.  Irregular cracks are unsightly and difficult to maintain but generally do not affect the integrity of the concrete.  Joints in concrete slabs are simply pre-planned cracks that are created by forming, sawing, or tooling.  Concrete slabs that are designed for serviceability typically use reinforcement such as deformed reinforcing steel bars (rebar) or welded wire fabric (WWF) to hold cracks tight.  The primary function for the reinforcement is to maintain aggregate interlock for load transfer and improve joint stability.  Rebar and WWR do not inhibit the formation of cracks, but if properly positioned provide reinforcement once a crack has developed.  Fiber reinforcement can provide the same function, is distributed throughout the cross-section of the concrete and distributes the stresses attributed to shrinkage throughout the panel making the joints much more stable. This distribution of fibers provides a totally reinforced cross-section of concrete and changes the way the concrete works.
