RE: CONCRETE: Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (SFRC)`

I still think a conventionally reinforced slab with a couple of inches of
Master Builders' Anvil Top will hold up better over time.

	NOT secondary reinforcement: the SFRC will not have any other
conventional
	reinforcement.

	FWIW, we are looking into it for a building grade slab which will be
used as
	an operating floor for a waste incinerator, and will have garbage
dumped on
	it, and heavy equipment (front end loaders, etc.) operating on it.

	We have it on good authority from a contractor who has built several
of them
	that this IS the way to go.
