The Memory Steel for Construction

With an increasing demand for productivity, elegance, and practicality, the construction industry is always forced to find new methods and seek out innovation. Developments of new products and technologies are constantly required.

re-fer has set itself these goals and provides different reinforcing systems for the structural engineering domain. Especially maintenance and the associated life-time extension will be key concerns in the future. As supplier of a Shape Memory Alloy (abbr.: SMA), re-fer allows for an easy and novel prestressing technique for retrofitting, new construction, and prefabrication. In addition to the SMA technology, re-fer offers further products for applications in strengthening to distributors and end-users.
