Fiber for roads: dispersed reinforcement of the road surface
Fiber for roads: dispersed reinforcement of the road surface
The design life of cement concrete roads is 20-30 years and 8-12 years for asphalt concrete pavement. But due to violations of laying technology, heavy traffic flow and the negative influence of various factors, premature damage to the roadway occurs. Dispersed reinforcement with fiber allows to solve the problem.

Benefits of screed fiber
Benefits of screed fiber
The screed is poured over the ceilings when installing floor coverings and installing a floor heating system. The solution is made from concrete, cement-sand, gypsum or multi-component mixture. The complexity of the work lies in the fact that during the drying of the surface shrinkage occurs, microcracks form. Fiber screed improves the quality of the raw material.

Underfloor heating with fiber
Underfloor heating with fiber
Underfloor heating is gaining popularity as it helps to evenly increase the temperature in the room without wasting energy. Several technology options are used: classic water, water-electric, with heating elements made of metal tape or using heating cables. Often the system is mounted in a screed, which causes some difficulties.
