Superior Concrete Wall Form-Tie System
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.
US Patent #7,819,388
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 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.
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

SpreaderClip™ (.308” & .5”) SC6000 & SC15000
The SpreaderClip™ is an internal form-spreading mechanism facilitating .308” or 0.50” RJD Fiberglass Rod cut to exact wall width.
WaterStop™ (.308”, .5”, 1”)
WaterStop™ is used when specifications require a waterstop washer. Although this device is made available, certified tests show that SuperTie™ performs equally well with or without WaterStop™.
SuperTie™ Bearing Plate BP615
The Bearing Plate is a required component with the SuperTie™ Gripper. BP615 is a 4”x4” steel plate that fits the 6K and 15K systems. G50K comes with customized bearing plate (call for details).
