MICRO-SYNTHETIC FIBRE REINFORCEMENT SYSTEMS

FORTA MICRO FIBRE REINFORCEMENT SYSTEMS FOR CONCRETE

Designed to address early age cracking problems, FORTA® micro-synthetic fibres prevent 80-100% of all cracks in the plastic state - precisely when most cracks occur. During the plastic settlement phase, the fibres create a three-dimensional support network that resists the downward pull of gravity, thus keeping aggregates in suspension and promoting uniform bleeding. This network increases the tensile strain capacity of concrete during the plastic shrinkage phase as well. Another advantage of polypropylene fibres is their ability to mitigate the explosive tendency of concrete during fires, because they melt and relieve volatile steam pressure in concrete. Even finishing FORTA® products is easy. In applications where aesthetics are especially important, you can choose a FORTA® product that provides a virtually invisible finish.

FORTA ® fibres are manufactured from 100% virgin polypropylene, the only material suitable for fibre reinforcement of concrete. When requesting fibre reinforcement, ask for genuine FORTA® fibres by name and if you are unsure that you are receiving only 100% genuine FORTA® products, give us a call to verify that your concrete supplier supplies FORTA® fibres.

 

Choose from the following micro fibre reinforcement systems:

  • FORTA® MIGHTY MONO  - for residential and architectural applications. A fine fibre that controls plastic shrinkage cracking and is virtually invisible in the finished concrete.
  • FORTA® SUPER-NET - for more demanding residential and commercial applications. A softer, grey-colored fibrillated (net-shaped) fibre that mixes and performs well without sacrificing a premium surface finish. Its ‘SUPER-NETWORKING’ power, long-term durability, and true secondary/temperature control incorporates a fibrillated pattern into the concrete mix.
  • FORTA® ECONO-CAST - for shotcrete, plaster and precast. Available in 19mm fixed length.
