Forta Ferro & FRC FIB-300

 

 

DuPont Pioneer Beaver Creek Building 2, Johnston, IA is an 180,000 square foot office/lab building.  The facility, constructed by the Ryan Companies, is a two story structure that incorporates 80,000 square feet of laboratory space on the ground floor and 100,000 square feet of office space on the second floor.  The 80,000 square foot state-of-the art laboratory space on the ground floor utilizes FRC FIB-300 fibrillated micro-synthetic fibers at a dosage rate of 1.5 lbs./cubic yard of concrete.  The ground floor includes beautifully polished and stained floors.  The 100,000 square foot office space located on the second floor benefits from Forta Ferro, a macro-synthetic fiber system.  The Forta Ferro dosage rate is 4.0 lbs./cubic yard of concrete for the composite metal deck slabs as recommended by the Steel Deck Institute.  Central Iowa Ready Mix supplied the concrete, OPN was the Project Architect, and Shuck Britson was the Structural Engineer.

In the U.S., synthetic and steel fibers have been used in concrete for over 30 years to improve concrete’s plastic (early-age) and hardened properties.  Micro-synthetic fibers have been used to provide control of random plastic-shrinkage cracking.  Steel fiber and Macro-synthetic fibers have been used to provide crack width control in concrete after it reaches a hardened state.  Combining these products (Blends) provides plastic and hardened state benefits.  The concrete applications that fiber reinforcement is used and includes, but not limited to, slabs-on-grade, composite metal deck slabs, topping slabs over precast panels, precast, and shotcrete.
