Steel Fibre for Concrete

new reinforcement

   Base MSH 10050, Hooked End Steel Fibres are designed specifically for the reinforcement of concrete, mortars, and other cementitious mixes. base MSH 10050 is a cold drawn wire fiber, hooked end to provide optimum performance within the concrete mix. Base MSH 10050 Hooked End steel fibers are ASTM compliant and specifically designed to meet or exceed the defined performance requirements. 

 ∙ Provides uniform multi-directional concrete reinforcement 
 ∙ Increases crack resistance, ductility, energy absorption, or toughness of concrete 
∙ Improves impact resistance, fatigue endurance, and shear strength of concrete 
 ∙ High tensile strength fiber bridging joints and cracks to provide tighter aggregate interlock resulting in increased load-carrying capacity. 
 ∙ Provide increased ultimate load-bearing capacity which allows possible reduction of the concrete section ∙ Requires less labor to incorporate into concrete than conventional reinforcement 
 ∙ Offers economical concrete reinforcement solutions with greater project scheduling accuracy 
 ∙ Ideally suited for hand or vibratory screeds, laser screeds, and all conventional finishing equipment. 

PRIMARY APPLICATIONS ∙ Ground-supported slabs ∙ Jointless Floors ∙ External roads & pavements ∙ Manhole Covers.

 ∙ Conforms to ASTM A820, Type I cold drawn wire 
∙ Testing conforms with ASTM A820 TYPE Hooked End NOMINAL DIMENSIONS: GEOMETRY Base MSH 10050, Hooked End Steel Fibres  
 D = 1.00 mm L = 50 mm A/R = 50 Tolerance for D/L + 10% As per ASTM 
 1 Diameter D : 1.00 mm; Length L : 50 mm; 1 Aspect Ratio L/D : 50 Hook length l & l’ : 1-4 mm 1 Hook depth h & h’ : 1.80 mm, +1/-0 mm Bending angle a & a’ : 450 1 Camber of the fibre : max 50 % of L’ Torsion angle.

PRODUCT USE MIXING DESIGNS AND PROCEDURES: Base MSH 10050 Hooked End steel fibers can be added during or after the batching of the concrete but should never be added as the first component. Such devices as conveyor belts, chutes, and dispensers may add fibers to the mixer at the ready mix plant. After the fibers have been added, the concrete should be mixed for a sufficient time (minimum 5 minutes at full mixing speed) to ensure uniform distribution of the fibers throughout the concrete. The use of mid or high-range water-reducing admixtures can be advantageous but is not essential. 

 PLACING: Base MSH 10050 Hooked End steel fibers can be pumped and placed using conventional equipment. Hand or vibratory screeds and laser screeds can be used with Base MSH 10050 Hooked End steel fibers.
 FINISHING: Conventional finishing techniques and equipment can be used when finishing Base MSH 10050 Hooked End steel fibers concrete. In some cases an extra bull float process is advised and lowering the angle of the power float blades will help to minimize fiber exposure on the surface.

 DOSAGE RATE: The fiber dosage will vary depending on the type of application, concrete mix design, and the performance/toughness requirements of each particular project. Typically, steel fiber dosage will be in the range of 20 kg. to 40 kg. per cubic meter. Stewols India’s technical staff can offer advice on dosage requirements once performance requirements have been established by the project designer/engineer. 

 COMPATIBILITY Base MSH 10050 Hooked End steel fibers are compatible with all curing compounds, superplasticizers, water reducers, hardeners, and coatings. 

 SAFETY: gloves and eye protection should be used when handling or adding base MSH 10050 Hooked End steel fibers to concrete. 
 PACKAGING Base MSH 10050 Hooked End steel fibers are available, as standard, in 20 kg. / 25 kg. / 30 kg. HDPE Bags or boxes.

Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) is a type of concrete that incorporates steel fibers to deliver greater strength than regular concrete. The fibers help a building withstand impacts. The concrete is also able to withstand crack formation which helps it to prevent cracks and avoid the problems that come from them. The concrete is also very light and is able to withstand the effects of fire, making it ideal for areas where fires are likely.

This blog is going to look at the properties of Fiber Reinforced Concrete and how it is used. What is Structural FRC? What are its benefits over standard concrete? What are its applications? This article will attempt to address these questions.


There are many inventions that become useful products for human life. But creating new and useful products is not easy for everyone. This is important for everyone to see that with hard work and perseverance, even a simple idea can be turned into a useful product for the community.

Invention: Concrete with steel fiber.

This product is a unique material that is produced by mixing special steel fiber in the concrete before pouring. This product has many advantages:

Steel fiber in concrete is a type of steel fiber that is an organic fiber, typically made of glass or carbon fiber, and can be added to concrete to increase its strength. So when it comes to the application of the fiber content, the fiber is produced into the length of the steel fiber and it can be mixed directly with concrete to produce building materials. As its name suggests, the steel fiber adds strength to the concrete structure.

Here, we mainly introduce the structure and function of the steel fiber. In addition, the steel fiber is a kind of environmental protection building material and is also.
