Bosfa® gives the highest priority to protecting the environment.

We are well aware of the environmental impact the concrete and steel industries have on the planet. We continuously strive to minimize our environmental impact by focus on #valueengineering and integrating sustainability at all levels of our business

Bekaert®® was granted an EPD certificate in June 2021 for Dramix® manufactured at our Petrovice plant. Currently only our galvanised fibres come from Europe which are covered by this EPD. We are expecting our Indonesian Plant to have their EPD finalized by June 2022 which will cover all our fibres.

Dramix® will support you on your sustainability journey

1. Less concrete + less steel = less CO2

  • Dramix® can reduce the thickness of concrete slabs by 10 to 25%
  • Dramix® can reduce the amount of steel by 30 to 50%

By using less concrete and less steel, you significantly reduce the carbon footprint of your project.

2. Longer lasting concrete elements

  • Flooring – A concrete floor reinforced with steel fibers is more durable and resistant to wear and tear than traditionally reinforced floors.
  • Precast – Precast concrete pipes reinforced with Dramix® steel fibers extend the lifespan of pipe systems by 15 to 20 years, as confirmed by wastewater treatment organizations.

3. No microplastic pollution

  • Dramix® steel fibers deliver a microplastic and pollution-free solution, as is increasingly required by government regulations

4. Sustainable transportation

  • Significantly reduced transportation required compared to traditional mesh reinforcing
  • With a focus on #valueengineering utilizing the additional capacity we get with Dramix® 4D 80/60BG to further reduce the amount of transportation required by getting the most meters out of each container.
