Sigma Thermal Corporation

Marietta, GA - October 2011

Project Description

Econo-Net® 1-1/2” was used at dosage of 3.0 lbs. / cu. yd. to control cracking. For 30,000 sq. ft. of heavy-duty 8″ thick manufacturing floor slab on ground, Lindsey specified FORTA-FERRO® 2-1/4″ at a high dosage of 7.5 lbs. / cu. yd.  And for 21,000 sq. ft. of 6 1 /4″ thick lightweight concrete slab on composite metal deck, FORTA-FERRO®  was used as an alternative to welded wire fabric at a dosage of 5.0 lbs. / cu. yd. The fiber was added and mixed uniformly by the ready mixer team, pumped easily placed and finished efficiently by Wheeler Services of Atlanta, who has used fiber reinforced concrete in a wide variety of previous project applications. In all, fiber reinforcement was successfully used to control cracking and add toughness in over 2,000 cubic yards of concrete.
