When building the new Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale facility, concrete contractor Heywood Builders sought an alternative solution to welded wire fabric for reinforcing the facility’s 300-cubic-yard composite concrete/metal deck system.

Euclid Chemical recommended upgrading to Tuf-Strand SF high-strength fiber reinforcement at a dosage rate of 5 lbs/yd3. This approach guaranteed that the deck system would have the value of a three-dimensional crack control reinforcement throughout every square inch of concrete.
