SuperTie™ System Overall Advantages

SuperTie™ systems are appropriate for use in all forming applications but are especially beneficial in situations such as architectural finishes because an aesthetically pleasing finish is attained with tremendously reduced labor expenditures. The systems also reduce costs in battered-wall and “odd-sized” tie situations because the rod is cut to the required length at the jobsite.

  • Superior Finishes: Improved architectural finishes, without patches or rust.
  • No Corrosion: The fiberglass form-tie material cannot rust, eliminating the need for break-back labor, plugging or patching.
  • Saves Money: Saves dramatically on labor costs. Reduces form-tie-related costs as much as 70%.
  • Reduced Inventory: One size fits all jobs. Bulk lengths are cut to the working measurements at the jobsite.
  • Extends Form Life: All forms and form liners strip easily from the structure without damage from the ties.
  • Natural Insulator: Fiberglass tie, which is left in the structure, is electromagnetically transparent, a valuable trait in some applications.
  • Compatibility: SuperTie™ systems are compatible with all job-built and commercially available form systems.

SuperTie™ Smooth Rod Series

SuperTie™ patented fiberglass form-tie systems are used to secure concrete formwork during concrete placement and initial hydration, without the inherent limitations and rusting of previously popular steel form-tie systems. RJD SuperTie™ can be manufactured in a broad array of colors. The RJD fiberglass tie will never rust, therefore no breakback removal or snap-tie cone patching is ever required, creating superior architectural finishes. There’s a significant reduction of wall-forming labor costs when using the SuperTie™ fiberglass form-tie system, and it works well with anything from handset wall forms to crane-set gang form systems.

SuperTie™ Coil Rod Series

SuperTie Coil Rod™ secures concrete formwork during concrete placement. The fiberglass coil threaded rod will never rust; therefore removal from a structure (as with steel threaded rod) is not necessary. Fiberglass Coil Rod is available in ½”, ¾”, and 1” diameters, offering ultimate strengths of up to 15,000, 30,000, and 34,000 pounds. Material is stocked in fully threaded 8′ lengths and is easily cut to shorter lengths. Longer lengths can be special ordered with only the ends threaded.

SuperTie™ 6K (.308” Rod) GND6000

SuperTie™ 6K Patented Gripper System offers an ultimate tensile strength of 6,000 pounds (3,000 pounds safe working load at 2:1 safety factor) and is most commonly used with job-built (plywood and 2×4) forms and handset modular forms. The fiberglass rod diameter is only .308 inches, making the system compatible with most commercial forming systems.

SuperTie™ 15K (.5” Rod) GND15000

SuperTie™ 15K Patented Gripper System offers an ultimate tensile strength of 15,000 pounds (7,500 safe working load at 2:1 safety factor). This system’s greater strength makes it attractive to those who need heavier forms and higher concrete placement rates. The .500-inch-diameter rod can be used with many commercially available forms.

SuperTie™ RockGrip 6K & 15K Systems

RockGrip™ is our anchoring device for the smooth SuperTie™ rod in single-forming applications for 6K and 15K systems. It is mechanical in nature and must be set by the “RockGrip Setting Tool,” which can be driven by hand or under power with any roto-hammer. RockGrip is easy to use, eliminates epoxy cure time, is less expensive than alternatives, requires less anchor depth, and eliminates plugging and patching.

Non-Corrosive Fiberglass Smooth Rod

RJD Fiberglass Smooth Rod utilizes a specially blended and formulated custom-engineered resin, made in the USA, combining ultimate tensile strength and maximizing the RJD Gripper strength. (Do not use any non-RJD engineered rod with RJD grippers; this could result in form failure and/or injury.) RJD Fiberglass Smooth Rod will never rust, eliminating the need for breakback, plugging, and patching and allowing for superior architectural finishes. RJD Fiberglass Smooth Rod is offered in .308”, 0.50”, and 1” diameters with a selection of colors available for each size.

RJD Fiberglass Smooth Rod Colors:
.308” Rod: Grey, tan, white, black, and brown
0.50” Rod: Grey and black
1” Rod: Grey

SuperTie™ CRFF 0500 (1/2”)

SuperTie™ Coil Rod Form Fixture 1/2” offers an ultimate tensile strength of 15,000 pounds (7,500 pounds safe working load at 2:1 safety factor) and is most commonly used with job-built (plywood and 2×4) forms and handset modular forms. The fiberglass rod diameter is 1/2” inch, making the system compatible with most commercial forming systems.

SuperTie™ CRFF 0750 (3/4”)

SuperTie™ Coil Rod Form Fixture 3/4” offers an ultimate tensile strength of 30,000 pounds (15,000 pounds safe working load at 2:1 safety factor) and is most commonly used with job-built (plywood and 2×4) forms and handset modular forms. The fiberglass rod diameter is 3/4” inch, making the system compatible with most commercial forming systems.

SuperTie™ CRFF 1000 (1”)

SuperTie™ Coil Rod Form Fixture 1” offers an ultimate tensile strength of 34,000 pounds (17,000 pounds safe working load at 2:1 safety factor) and is most commonly used with job-built (plywood and 2×4) forms and handset modular forms. The fiberglass rod diameter is 1” inch, making the system compatible with most commercial forming systems.

Non-Corrosive Fiberglass Coil Rod

RJD Fiberglass Coil Rod utilizes a specially blended and formulated custom-engineered resin, made in the USA, combining ultimate tensile strength and the RJD Form Fixture (CRFF) strength. (Do not use any non-RJD engineered rod with RJD grippers; this could result in form failure and/or injury.) RJD Fiberglass Coil Rod will never rust, eliminating the need for breakback, plugging, and patching and allowing for superior architectural finishes. RJD Fiberglass Coil Rod is offered in ½”, ¾”, and 1” diameters.
