Fiber-reinforced precast concrete

Extremeconcrete is a hyper-reinforced concrete that has the density of stone without the heavy weight. Meld’s proprietary reinforcement process distributes two types of fiber throughout the product for added strength and durability, creating a three-dimensional backbone to help maintain surface integrity. This blend of fibers creates a distinctive texture that reveals visual depth in the finished material.

Because of its superior density, Extremeconcrete can be poured into a broad array of custom forms for interior or exterior use. In modular or monolithic pours, the product is designed to be hand cast and finished. Meld has also developed a special sealing and polishing process to help protect the material.
