Maumee Storage Facility

Maumee, OH - September 2014

Project Description

Originally, wire mesh was considered as the secondary reinforcement for the concrete slab, but Kuhlman Corp. and the contractor, have had positive experiences with the use of FORTA-FERRO®. In result, they recommended the fiber to be examined as an alternate reinforcement method for the project. After realizing the benefits of FORTA-FERRO®, such as impact resistance, abrasion resistance and added toughness, the city of Maumee chose to use the fiber at a dosage of 5.0 lbs. / cu. yd. to replace the wire mesh. The FORTA-FERRO® mixed uniformly and placed without any issues. The contractor experienced no issues with finishing the surface, resulting in an excellent broom finish.
