STEWOLS INDIA (P) LTD an ISO 9001:2008 certified company are the pioneer and largest manufacturers and exporters of high quality Steel Fibres in India. “SHAKTIMAN®” is the registered Trade Mark of our Steel Fibres. SHAKTIMAN® Steel Fibres confirm to ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) – A 820 specifications and are available in various shapes, sizes, strengths and aspect ratios.
Concrete – world’s most widely used structural material develops cracks because of many reasons. The reasons may be attributed to various factors, mainly due to inherent weakness of the concrete to resist tensile forces.

Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC)technology is widely used in Europe, USA, UK, Australia and many other parts of Asia. In India concrete fibres are used in various construction projects.

 

 

Types Of Steel Fibres

  • Mild Steel Fibres
  • Stainless Steel Fibres

 

Shapes Of Steel Fibres

Steel Fibres are available in various shapes and sizes. However the common ones are the hooked end and the crimped and round steel fibers. Below is a description of both the shapes:
