MACRO-SYNTHETIC FIBRE REINFORCEMENT SYSTEMS

MACRO CONCRETE FIBRE REINFORCEMENT SYSTEMS FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE

NOVOMESH & ENDURO MACRO FIBRE SYSTEMS from Propex Concrete Systems

Representing a quantum technological leap in fibres, our high performance polymer macro-fibres are made from a revolutionary material that offers the long-term performance of steel fibres at a lower dosage rate.

The unique sinusoidal, wavelike shape of each fiber serves to anchor it firmly within the concrete. At the same time, the design of the fibres allows for addition at a much higher rate per unit volume, infusing the concrete with added levels of toughness, energy absorption and durability.

In addition, macro-synthetic fibres provide an added measure of crack control without the risk of corrosion associated with steel. When used in shotcrete applications, these high-tech fibres provide increased adhesion, so you'll not only experience less rebound and waste, you will be able to apply thicker layers of concrete in one pass.

Novomesh 850 is a blend of steel fibres and high performance Fibermesh micro synthetic fibres in one bag.

Novomesh 950 is a blend of high performance macro synthetic fibres and Fibermesh micro synthetic fibres in one bag.

 

FORTA FERRO from Forta Corporation

FORTA-FERRO® is an easy-to-finish, colour blended fibre, made of 100% virgin copolymer/ polypropylene consisting of a twisted bundle non-fibrillating monofilament and a fibrillating network fibre, yielding a high-performance concrete reinforcement system.

FORTA-FERRO® is used to reduce plastic and hardened concrete shrinkage, improve impact strength, and increase fatigue resistance and concrete toughness. This extra heavy-duty fibre offers maximum long-term durability, structural enhancements, and effective secondary/temperature crack control by incorporating a truly unique synergistic fibre system of long length design.

FORTA-FERRO® is non-corrosive, non-magnetic, and 100% alkali proof.

This patented fibre is actually a blend of two fibres:

  • a standard fibrillated polypropylene fibre to reduce and control shrinkage and temperature cracking, and
  • a very heavy-duty twisted-bundle monofilament fibre made of a strong synthetic copolymer, to increase load-transfer and post-crack performance.

This pre-blended fibre at dosages of 3 – 4.5kg per cubic metre of concrete provides a much higher residual strength than other synthetic fibres.

FORTA-FERRO®, which means "Strong As Steel", is also extremely user friendly, having gained a reputation as the best mixing and finishing fibre of its kind in the industry.

 
Both Fibermesh and Forta Ferro fibres are compliant with European Standard 14889-2
