Whenever customers want to inquire about our products, they will be put in contact with one of our specialists. They will work together in finding the right material and properties that will be perfect for their project.
Features of polypropylene fibres for concrete
First of all, we should start by mentioning why polypropylene fibres are added to concrete in the first place. Concrete by itself is a very reliable, solid and stable material. However, certain projects for different reasons might need the strength of concrete and a few properties. Fibres are added to the screed material in order to increase its ductility and toughness.
But that’s not all, because there are a few important features of these fibres that improve upon the great benefits that concrete already presents. For example, the material will have a higher tensile strength. It will also improve its resistance against fatigue and it will reduce crack growth. Finally, adding fiber concrete will greatly increase its resistance against impacts.
Which fibres can be added to concrete
There are many different fibres that may be used for reinforcing concrete. For example, it is possible to add polymer and carbon fibres. They have great properties like reduced thermal expansion, have a great tensile strength and are highly resistant to chemical contact.
Polypropylene fibre is another kind of material that can be used to reinforce concrete. This material has a few advantages over other fibres. First, it can be a great insulator against contaminants from organic and non-organic origin. On the other hand, it makes the concrete highly impermeable, meaning that water will not be an issue in the place where it is being used.
Benefits of fiber to concrete
There are numerous other ways in which fiber concrete can be superior to standard concrete. For example, it is possible to increase its resistance to bending, and protect the material against shrinkage effect. Another great example is fiberglass. This material has some of the reinforcement properties like carbon fibres and micro fibres such as great thermal resistance, but at a fraction of the cost.
Advantages of cooperation with FiberMix
FiberMix is a company where specialists in concrete, construction and engineering use their experience to offer the best solutions to their customers. Also, everything offered by FiberMix is cost effective. When this is combined with the high standards that all FiberMix products satisfy, it is easy to see why this is the best place to source any fiber for cement mix.
Where does polypropylene fiber is used?
Polypropylene is a versatile material that can be used in a variety of applications, including concrete. It is known for its resistance to drying shrinkage and plastic shrinkage, making it an ideal choice for many construction projects.
What reinforcing fibers for concrete do you produce?
The TM Fibermix catalog includes ArmoTech synthetic fiber for structural reinforcement, PolyMesh macrofiber, polypropylene microfiber for concrete and screeds.
Why polyolefin fiber reinforcement is better than using steel
Polyolefin fibers are a type of synthetic fiber that is lighter in weight than steel fibers. They have no reactions with water, which makes them ideal for reinforcing concrete. Polyolefin fiber reinforced concrete has been shown to be more resistant to corrosion and cracking than concrete made with steel fibers.
