SikaFiber-800 Stealth: The Superior Finishing Fiber for Slabs on Ground

When: March 2nd

Time: 2pm ET

Earn: Non-Credit

Description: 

When is it great to have low memory? An important element to finish fiber-reinforced concrete is using external vibration. External vibration brings paste to the surface and buries fibers located at the slab surface. During troweling, if the fiber is stiff, the fiber can rebound out of the slab surface. SikaFiber®-800 Stealth has low memory and during troweling will stay bent in the concrete slab surface, which in turn limits fiber exposure for a smooth finish.
