Euclid Chemical: Macrofibers & The Big Game – Inside the Concrete of the NFL’s Largest Stadium

The 2022 National Football League (NFL) championship football game, featuring the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, was recently played at SoFi Stadium located in Inglewood, California. While the exciting action was all on the field, one of SoFi’s most valuable players wasn’t found on the turf but beneath the stands within the concrete of the stadium’s upper-level decks. Installed to serve as a synthetic macrofiber reinforcement for the topping slabs, Euclid Chemical’s TUF-STRAND SF was used as a low-cost alternative while still providing the strength and durability the project required.

“This is another exciting example of a successful project where macrofibers have been used as a viable alternative to conventional reinforcement—resulting in reduced construction costs, less environmental site impact, improved worker safety, and the ability for the contractor to place more concrete faster with less manpower required,” says Mike Mahoney, director of marketing and technology for fiber-reinforced concrete at Euclid Chemical. “We are looking forward to seeing more projects like SoFi Stadium constructed with Euclid fibers in the future.”

Utilizing fiber-reinforced concrete allows contractors to nearly eliminate the risk for corrosion by providing improved crack control for the topping slabs. According to Euclid, contractors used a dosage rate of 5 pounds of TUF-STRAND SF per cubic yard of concrete.

With the ability to reinforce concrete without the weight of steel rebar, Euclid’s TUF-STRAND SF synthetic macrofibers significantly reduced construction costs by eliminating the time and labor needed to crane lift and install conventional steel or welded wire mesh.
