ABS- CBN is Philippines leading television broadcasting company and is creating soundstages to provide sets for films and TV shows. This is the first sound stage fully equipped with state-of-the art built in Philippines, and in South East Asia, in quite a while.

This 48,000m2 floor area facility will be used to store tobacco leafs, process and final packaging. Initial design was using 40kg/m3 loose low performing type fibre. With the combined effort with our partner Infratex Environmental Services Philippines Inc – Bekaert®’s proposal was to use a high performance fibre floor solution at a lower dose rate.

This is the first Dramix slab on pile project in Malaysia. Pile spacing is 3.2m x 3.2m grid, the slab is resting on 200mm x 200mm square pile. No pile caps are required for the construction of the slab. The floor is constructed by Asia Powermix with TK Flat Floor Malaysia.

Griya Idola Industrial Park just launched a new industrial area in Tangerang, west of Jakarta. The pavement is prepared for heavy truck loads and long term usage. Original design is 300mm thick slab with K400 concrete reinforced by 2 layer of wiremesh M8. This was completely replaced with Dramix 3D fibres, first slab was cast in 2014 and still continue until today.

Tobacco industry remains high in South East Asia, some producers are opening new production facilities or upgrading their production facility. Due to superior performance against cracking and to minimize slab joints. A Dramix solution was chosen to upgrade two production facilities one at British American Tobacco in Malang, East Java and the other at Japan Tobacco International (JTI) in Malang. Both production facilities in Pasuruan utilise the same high performance Dramix solution.

After repairing, a topping layer has been added with 6cm of thickness and 12kg/m3 of Dramix 3D steel fibre. The concrete is also mixed with crystalline admix to reduce concrete permeability. The concept is quite interesting. Dramix fibre helps to limit crack width of the topping, while the crystalline admixture assists with pore blocking and self-healing the micro crack by nano crystals. Both products work very well together to offer to a offer the best solution.

The new 27,000sqm Northline facility in Regency Park, South Australia utilised the tried and tested Dramix fibre only jointless solution for the internal slabs. With the external slabs adopting a Dramix Combi Slab, enabling the removal of all saw cuts and all dowelled joints from the pavement. Having no joints makes for the most efficient design with the additional benefit of long term reduced maintenance cost with the removal of costly jointing systems.
