Plakabox

Plakabox allows connection between two concrete elements by their reinforcements, without drilling in the formwork.

Plakabox consist of special pre-bent and pre-spaced steel reinforcement supplied in a pre-galvanized steel box that is dimpled and flanged for maximum concrete bond. The system is used to enable efficient and reliable reinforcement continuity for sections of concrete structures that are poured in subsequent phases without the need to drill formwork.

Installation is simply achieved by nailing the casing to the formwork or wiring it to the existing reinforcement cage prior to pouring concrete. After pouring and removal of the formwork the lids of the box is removed and the special re-bendable reinforcement is bent out ready for the next concrete pour.

The key benefits of Plakabox are as per below:

• Easier to manipulate on site heavy, long or high placed rebars
• Without need to drill the formwork
• Significant saving of time
• Avoid bending and unbending the reinforcement rebars
• Avoid encumbering and dangerous reinforcement bars
• Avoid Excessive rust due to long waiting time before pouring 2nd Phase

Due to the exclusive profile, specially designed to anchor itself in the concrete, the Plakabox is the only rebar casing capable of making an anchoring which can transfer significant force around the structural joints.

Concrete Fiber

The use of fibers to fortify building materials may seem like a new idea, but it’s actually been around since ancient Egypt, when crude straw “fibers” were added to clay and mud building blocks and bricks. Though primitive in design, these fibers added a certain amount of cohesiveness and toughness that the Egyptian builders found very valuable.

 

FORTA Corporation has revolutionized this basic idea. By combining space-age synthetic materials with unique designs and shapes, FORTA offers the international construction market a valuable fiber reinforcement product that controls cracking and adds long-term durability to a wide variety of concrete applications.

Halfen Moment Group as the Sole Distributor for FORTA in Asia offers the complete range for the application of Concrete Fiber.

Econo-Mono Monofilament Microfibers

FORTA’s Econo-Mono®   is an easy-to-finish, fully oriented, 100% virgin homopolymer polypropylene monofilament fibrous reinforcement. This economy grade fiber offers long-term durability, and functions as a plastic shrinkage reinforcement intended to reduce the formation of shrinkage cracks prior to initial set and to reduce settlement shrinkage. Econo-Mono®   is non-corrosive, chemically inert, and 100% Alkali Proof!

Econo-Mono®   is used in concrete applications such as slab-on-grade, curbs, driveways, sidewalks, basement floors, garage floors, colored concrete, and small precast products, to control plastic shrinkage cracking while improving basic durability properties. Requires No Mix Design or Placement Changes!

Recommended standard dosage rate of Econo-Mono®   is 1.0 lb. per cubic yard (0.6 kg. per cubic meter) of concrete added directly to the concrete mixing system during, or after, the batching of the other ingredients and mixed at the time and speed recommended by the mixer manufacturer (usually four to five minutes).

Econo-Net – Filbrillated Microfibers

Forta’s Econo-Net®   is an easy to finish, fully oriented, 100% virgin homopolymer polypropylene fibrous reinforcement in a collated fibrillated (network) form. Econo-Net®   is used to reduce plastic and hardened concrete shrinkage, improve impact strength, increase fatigue resistance and concrete toughness. This medium-duty fiber offers good-bonding power, long-term durability, and true secondary/temperature control by incorporating a fibrillated pattern and long length option. Non-corrosive, non-magnetic, chemically inert, and 100% Alkali Proof!

Econo-Net®   is mainly used in concrete applications such as slab-on-grade, overlays/toppings, curbs, slope paving, driveways, sidewalks, basement floors, garage floors, architectural/colored concrete, precast, mortar, grout, water tanks, and sewage treatment facilities – anywhere that superior fiber performance is desired and where the objective is to control temperature/shrinkage cracking while improving basic durability properties. Requires No Mix Design or Placement Changes!

Recommended dosage rate of Econo-Net®   is 1.5 lbs. per cubic yard (0.9 kg. per cubic meter) of concrete added directly to the concrete mixing system during, or after, the batching of the other ingredients and mixed at the time and speed recommended by the mixer manufacturer (usually four to five minutes).

Forta-Ferro – Macrofibers

Forta-Ferro®   is an easy-to-finish, color blended fiber, made of 100% virgin copolymer/ polypropylene consisting of a twisted bundle non-fibrillating monofilament and a fibrillating network fiber, yielding a high-performance concrete reinforcement system. Forta-Ferro®   is used to reduce plastic and hardened concrete shrinkage, improve impact strength, and increase fatigue resistance and concrete toughness. This extra heavy-duty fiber offers maximum long-term durability, structural enhancements, and effective secondary/temperature crack control by incorporating a truly unique synergistic fiber system of long length design. Forta-Ferro®   is non-corrosive, non-magnetic, and 100% alkali proof!

Forta-Ferro®   has been used in scores of flatwork projects as well to reduce and/or eliminate the need for reinforcing steel, such as streets, bridge decks, and manufacturing and commercial floors. Continuing research programs and pilot field trials are also being performed to investigate the possibilities of joint-space extension and reduction, due to the tremendous reduction in shrinkage and slab curling afforded by these high-volume, high-strength fibers.

Recommended dosage rate of Forta-Ferro®   is 0.2% to 2.0% by volume of concrete (3 to 30 lbs. per cubic yard) added directly to the concrete mixing system during, or after, the batching of the other ingredients and mixed at the time and speed recommended by the mixer manufacturer (usually four to five minutes).
