IRVINE, Calif.--()--MMFX Technologies Corporation, an Irvine-based materials science company, announces completion of a $55 million commitment in secured debt financing and receipt of final funding that was contingent upon the startup of its Welland, Ontario, Canada steel mill facility. MMFX had previously received $27 million of the financing. Axiom Capital Management Inc. acted as the procuring agent for the transaction.

MMFX Steel of Canada opened ahead of schedule on September 18, 2008. “We are extremely pleased with the startup of MMFX in Welland, as it represents a strategic investment in the future of our company and allows us to introduce new, proprietary steels more efficiently and cost-effectively,” said David Pollack, Chief Executive Officer of MMFX.

The mill’s state-of-the-art equipment is ideal to produce MMFX’s high-quality steel. Production is not only more economical, but yields a better end product. The use of controlled-atmosphere-specialty-equipment allows MMFX to significantly reduce the use of high-cost raw materials and make a better, and cleaner, steel.

David Pollack attributes the success of the mill and MMFX Steel of Canada to a commitment by every member of the MMFX family. “From MMFX Technologies to operations, engineering, sales, and of course the staff of the mill itself, everyone pulled together to make the startup of the mill a reality.”

David C. Pollack This guide provides recommendations on design provisions for the use of ASTM A1035/ASTM1035M Grade 100 (690) deformed steel bars for reinforced concrete members. The recommendations address only those requirements of ACI 318-08 that limit efficient use of such steel bars. Other code requirements are not affected.

This guide includes a discussion of the material characteristics of Grade 100 (690) ASTM 1035/A1035M deformed steel bars and recommends design criteria for beams, columns, slab systems, walls, and footings for Seismic Design Category (SDC) A, B, or C, and also for structural components not designated as part of the seismic-force-resisting system for SDC D, E, or F.
