HPS 950 Macro/Macro Blend Concrete Fibers

 

Panther Village, Cedar Falls, IA is a newly constructed residence hall at the University of Northern Iowa. Panther Village offers apartment-style living strictly for college juniors and seniors who still want to live within minutes of their classes.  The upper floors of Panther Village include HPS 950, a macro/micro-synthetic fiber system at a dosage rate of 5.0 lbs./cubic yard of concrete.  The project structural engineering firm, JP-SE, LLC, from Des Moines, IA approved HPS 950 as an alternate to welded wire fabric reinforcement for the topping slabs over precast planks. InVision Architects of Waterloo worked with the university to think of everything a student might need – including the use of concrete construction that provides virtually sound proof rooms for studying.  Larson Construction from Independence, IA was the concrete contractor and Manatt’s Inc. supplied the concrete.

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.
