SECOND LIFE STEEL FIBERS FOR CONCRETE
The processing of end-of-life tires
produces second-life steel filaments.
This steel is flexible, has high tenacity
and produces an impact resistant concrete.
HIGH QUALITY AND SUSTAINABILITY PRODUCT
FOR TODAY’S CONSTRUCTION!
The filaments that make up FLEXOfibers ™ products are highly flexible due to their small diameter and the characteristics of the steel alloy.
Thanks to the ratio of their reduced diameter (0.2mm avg) and their length, these fibers have 3 to 4 times more filaments per unit of weight than a conventional metallic fiber.
This feature improves job site safety. It is a certified product that meets the standards: ASTM C 1399 and ASTM C 1581.
Their technical advantages, their low cost and shorter work execution times, make FLEXOfibers ™ fibers the most competitive option on the market.
Thanks to the ratio of its reduced diameter (0.2mm avg) and its length, these fibers have 3 to 4 times more filaments per unit of weight than a conventional metal fiber, acting evenly distributed in the concrete.
The flexible steel alloy that makes up FLEXOfibers ™ fibers has a high tensile strength of 2,500 Mpa. (Prom.)
LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT
As a second life product, its carbon footprint is less than the one of a newly produced steel.
The flexible metal fiber for concrete reinforcement FLEXOfibers™, comes from the extraction of steel derived from the processing of end-of-life tires.
“Overall, the results were remarkably good. Therefore, we decided to further test your fibers with different mix ratios depending on the intended use of the fiber reinforced concrete. What we find most interesting about the patented FLEXOFibers ™ technology is the fact that its steel is made by recycling waste tires. This new technology achieves production rates at a fraction of the cost and 10% of the carbon footprint compared to traditional production methods.”
In the circular economy, the use of the materials is extended as much as possible to include concepts such as recycling, reinventing, and reusing at the end of each stage of their use. This gives maximum value to each material or resource. The circular economy is an alternative to the traditional linear economies of “Make-Use-Dispose.”
At Flexofibers we are committed to replace those linear economic models of “end of use” with innovative processes and products that allow regeneration and recycling of materials for new business models towards a sustainable construction industry.
It is a certified product that meets the standards both European and American:
ASTM C 1399
ASTM C 1581
UNE EN 14845-1
UNE EN 12390-3
UNE EN 4651
Stop wasting time and money! Traditional mesh or reinforcement bars placement techniques are very laborious. Save time by adding FLEXOfibers™ to concrete and work without interruption.
Improve the safety of the project! Meshes and reinforcement bars not only hinder other works on site but often cause accidents and delays.
Thanks to its low cost, shorter work execution times. Flexofibers ™ is the most competitive option on the mark
