Use of Synthetic Fibers in Precast

There have been four trends that have recently come together:

  1. The price of steel has gone through the roof
  2. New design equations have been developed for synthetic fibers extending their range
  3. New synthetic fibers have been developed - macrofibers - that extend the range
  4. SCC has been adopted by most producers solving workability problems
The result is that synthetic fibers can substantially reduce costs for most underground producers.


We recently presented the results of the new design equations and the experience of producers to the Technical Committee of the NPCA.
