JWS Construction uses a variety of products from leading manufacturers to bring you the highest quality results for your project. Here is some information on the products we use and how we use them:
Buckeye Fibers: Buckeye UltraFiber® 500 reinforcement fiber for concrete is 100% virgin specialty cellulose fiber with a patented alkaline resistant coating specifically engineered and manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified facility. UltraFiber 500® provides secondary reinforcement in concrete (temperature and shrinkage crack control) and meets ICC evaluation criteria for use in slab on grade. UltraFiber 500® is manufactured in the USA from renewable resources and complies with National Building Codes, ASTM C1116-08 and ASTM D7357-07. A dosage rate of 1.0 to 4.0 lb/yd3 is recommended depending on the application.
Proline stamps: Proline stamps is the leading company producing stamps that offer the most realistic look for pattern and texture mats. Check out their website to see the options that are available for your concrete project.
Integral color: With integrally colored concrete, the entire batch of concrete is colored all the way through, similar to adding food coloring to cake icing. Integral colors are available in powdered, granular and liquid forms. All types are generally a blend of synthetic or natural iron-oxide pigments that are formulated to disperse evenly when mixed into fresh concrete, either at the ready-mix plant or on the job site. The palette for integral pigments consists primarily of soft earth tones that integrate well with most landscapes and architectural elements.
The chief advantage of integral pigments is that the color extends throughout the entire concrete slab, so even if surface abrasion occurs, the color will not wear away. The pigments in integral coloring admixtures also are chemically stable and won’t fade over time from exposure to the weather or ultraviolet light.
Steel Rebar: 1/2″ rebar is tied in 4′ x 4′ squares to add rigidity and longevity to concrete. Rebar prevents separation and/or heaving of concrete.
