FORTA Corporation

FORTA®Corporation has been offering the U.S. construction market a valuable fiber reinforcement product that controlled cracking and added long-term durability to a wide variety of concrete applications. FORTA’s® fibers have played an important role in the design and construction of many different types of projects - from airports to tennis courts - from swimming pools to public schools.

World of Concrete
As the first in the industry, FORTA Corporation brought synthetic fiber reinforcement technology to the U. S. concrete market in 1978. First-generation microsynthetic fibers were used in relatively low dosages (1.0 to 1.5 lbs./cubic yard) to reduce cracking caused by shrinkage and temperature-related issues. In 1999, FORTA®was the first to introduce a second-generation material – FORTA-FERRO® – that represents higher performance levels enabled by much higher dosages (3.0 to 30.0 lbs./cubic yard). Even at these elevated dosages, FORTA-FERRO®reinforced mixes remain very user-friendly with regards to mixing, pumping, placing, and finishing, and allow the project designer, specifier, contractor, and owner to consider a higher replacement level of conventional reinforcing steel for many applications.

One of the most owner-desirable benefits of FORTA-FERRO®has been the practice of extending normal joint-spacing in slabs-on-ground at these higher dosage levels, due to the considerable reduction of shrinkage and curling. FORTA®continues to add to their 10-year collection of successful extended-joint floor slab project profiles and related trade publication articles, which are available upon request.

Wagner Electronics

Wagner Electronics felt proud to return to World of Concrete 2010 with the Rapid RH™, winner of the 2006 MIP award.

World of Concrete
The Rapid RH™, a fast, accurate moisture test for concrete floors has been proven to significantly decrease the time it takes to measure moisture in concrete floors. This state-of-the-art, risk management tool helps to considerably reduce flooring failures. The Rapid RH™ testing system should be a part of the overall moisture testing program on any project where moisture-sensitive finishes are to be applied. With all of the testing methods available today, Owners, General Contractors, Flooring Contractors and Installers need to be sure the tests they perform are accurate, repeatable, and available to all who want to know the current moisture condition of a slab on their project.

Installing the “Smart Sensor” units and taking periodic readings enables the drying progress of the slab to be monitored over time without having to conduct additional types of moisture tests. Because the “Smart Sensors” are installed below the surface of the slab there is far less risk of damage to the sensors or interference to normal construction activity.

The next generation of the Rapid RH™ features a fast, accurate and rugged factory calibrated “Smart Sensor.” Each “Smart Sensor” comes with a NIST traceable certification of calibration. This “Smart Sensor” equilibrates within 1 hour and remains in the concrete. Once equilibration is reached, additional readings can be obtained immediately. One of the most cost effective design features is the removable Rapid RH™ Reader. This patent protected design places the Smart Sensor into the concrete and readings can be taken with any Rapid RH™ Reader, alleviating concerns of sensor calibration.
