RE: Fibrous concrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This is right out of the Fibermesh web site: 

Don't specify Fibermesh for: 
The control of cracking as a result of external stresses. 

The Fibermesh representatives define "external stresses" as flexural stresses due to applied loads or settlement when referring to slabs on grade.

Has anyone specified fibrous concrete for slabs on grade as an contractors
option in lieu of std. wire mesh?
