Cradle-to-Gate Environmental Impact
Reducing the carbon footprint is progressively pushing precasters in the direction of using steel fiber reinforcement. This is mainly because steel fiber reinforcement, compared to traditional methods, saves on both concrete and steel usage.
For instance, when we compared a standard double mesh reinforcement with a Dramix® steel fibers reinforced precast element, adopting the Dramix® led to a 19% reduction in Global Warming Potential (GWP) emissions*.
This is mainly because Dramix® steel fibers enable building with thinner concrete elements while maintaining the same technical capabilities with less amount of reinforcement materials.
