OUR FIBRES AT A GLANCE
For construction products and types of construction technical approved Polyproylene and Steel Fibres
Our product range includes 3 polypropylene fibres with each available in 4 different lengths, and different types of steel fibres. Fibres lend varying properties to the concrete and thus provide individual solutions for various construction projects.
Polypropylene fibres are versatile. Based on product and application, polypropylene fibres may decrease plastic shrinkage and cracking, increase concrete’s fire resistance, increase concrete’s durability, structural strength and ductility. Typically applications include, but are not limited to:
» Precast concrete, tunnel segments
» Manufactured concrete products
» Industrial flooring, screed
» Agricultural construction
» Road & infrastructure construction
» Tunnel & underground construction

The anchorage of the steel fibres within the concrete matrix is much more efficient than the anchorage obtained by the simple friction between steel and concrete. Based on product and application, steel fibres may reduce crack widths and control the crack widths tightly, and thus improving concrete’s durability. Furthermore, they improve concrete’s structural strength and its impact- and abrasion resistance. Replacing heavier types of crack control steel mesh with steel fibres may also result in cost savings and faster construction.
Typically applications include, but are not limited to:
» Heavy duty flooring applications
» Civil engineering applications
» Composite metal decks
» Jointless floors
