Description

 

 HPS-900 PC

HIGH-PERFORMANCE SYNTHETICS

 

Guidelines

 

HPS-900 PC fibers are intended for long-term crack containment and help control plastic shrinkage cracking in concrete. The standard dosage rate for HPS-900 PC ranges from 4 lbs. to 10 lbs. per cubic yard of concrete. Please consult DE Fiberworks for dosage rates for your application, design information, or more details when using HPS-900 PC Fibers.

 

Applications

 

HPS-900 PC fibers may be used in any concrete application that requires increased crack control, improved impact, shatter and abrasion resistance, and improved durability. HPS-900 PC fibers are ideal for the following applications:

 

Septic Tanks

Precast

Slabs-on-Ground

Channel linings

Mining

Pools

Non-magnetic applications

Mixing, Placing & Finishing

 

Mixing HPS-900 PC fibers are packaged in pre-measured water soluble bags designed to be introduced into the concrete mix before, during, or after batching other concrete materials. Care should be taken to make sure the fibers are not added to the tail end of a high slump mix. Mixing should conform to ASTM C 94 with a minimum of 75 revolutions of the drum at full mixing speed to ensure uniform distribution of the fibers.

Placing – HPS-900 PC fibers can be pumped and placed using conventional equipment. At higher dosage rate of fibers, the use of a mid-range or high-range water reducer should be considered.

Finishing - Standard finishing equipment and techniques can be used when working with HPS-900 PC fibers. Finishing operations should begin as outlined in ACI 302. Troweling blades should be kept flat for as long as possible to help minimize the fibers on the surface.

 

 

 

Reinforcement Objective

 

To inhibit settlement shrinkage cracking prior to the initial set, and to reduce hardened concrete shrinkage cracking, improve impact and abrasion resistance, and enhance concrete durability. Provide increased level of residual strength and flexural toughness. Alternate to WWF and rebar for shrinkage & temperature reinforcement.

Fiber reinforcement makes good concrete better?

 

Fiber reinforcement makes good concrete better, in short because fiber reduces cracking and adds long-term durability to a wide variety of concrete applications.  Fiber reinforcement provides an alternative construction method to traditional welded wire fabric and rebar reinforcement and provides additional benefits, including guaranteed 3-dimensional reinforcement, safer installation and more economical.  DE Fiberworks supply a full range of fiber reinforcement products to meet challenging demands and provide the best fiber reinforcement solution for the specific application.   Fiber technology has advanced over the last decade to improve mixing, finishing and performance in fresh and hardened concrete.
