A material-efficient concrete reinforcement solution for flooring, tunneling and precast applications

March 2023
Gallery DRAMIX® 1
Gallery DRAMIX® 1


Dramix® steel fiber reinforced concrete offers a solution that is both effective, cost-efficient and environmentally conscious. By using steel fibers instead of traditional concrete reinforcement methods such as mesh or rebar, you can reduce the CO2 emissions by up to 35% for the construction of, for example, an automated warehouse, a production plant, tunnels, precast elements, etc. This is because steel fibers reinforce concrete homogeneously, requiring less material for the same level of performance. Additionally, advanced design optimization allows for the creation of thinner, yet durable concrete elements that use less concrete, steel, and water compared to traditional reinforcement methods.
