Industrial floors



Industrial floors can also be considered as pavements subjected to heavy traffic. In some cases, the presence of chemicals and higher amounts of abrasion can result in faster deterioration.

For reducing micro segregative bleeding in fresh concrete, increasing strength of fresh concrete, increasing frost and salt resistance, increasing fire resistance, Improving impact and abrasion resistance virgin polypropylene fibers have been used.

Due to enhance performances and effective cost-benefit ratio, the use of polypropylene fibers is often recommended for concrete structures recently. PFRC is easy to place, compact, finish, pump and it reduces the rebound effect in sprayed concrete applications by increasing cohesiveness of wet concrete. Being wholly synthetic there is no corrosion risk. PFRC shows improved impact resistance as compared to conventionally reinforced brittle concrete. The use of PFRC provides a safer working environment and improves abrasion resistance in concrete floors by controlling the bleeding while the concrete is in plastic stage. The possibility of increased tensile strength and impact resistance offers potential reductions in the weight and thickness of structural components and should also reduce the damage resulting from shipping and handling.
