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.
