Barchip fibre was used in the construction of two caisson foundations for the Japan Atomic Power Company. These caissons are part of the expansion of the nuclear power stations in Tsuruga.

Because the caissons will be in sea water the Barchip fibre has been used in combination with traditional steel reinforcing bar in order to ensure excellent crack propagation control and so reduce the egress of sea water to the steel reinforcing.

  • Product: Barchip 30mm
  • Dosage 4.55kg/m3 (0.5%)
  • Slump: 135mm
