Synthetic Fibers in Construction Industry


Mini Mixer

After adding of water into the dry mix concrete, Open the Fiber packet and slowly sprinkle fibers into a rotating mixer. Ensure that, the mixer has to be rotated at maximum RPM after adding fibers.

Manual Mixing

Prepare a dry mortar and make a pond. Add some water into pond and prepare 30% of dry mortar into slurry. Then open the Fiber packet and sprinkle fibers onto slurry uniformly and mix thoroughly for 5 to 10 minutes. Then mix that slurry with remaining dry mortar until you get a uniform paste.

RMC Plant

At the time of addition of water, Open the Fiber packet and pour fibers into the mixer. After dispatching concrete from the mixer into truck, the truck has to rotate at maximum RPM so that fibers distributes uniformly.

Do Specify Fibers For

  • Reducing concrete cracking due to plastic shrinkage.
  • Replacing or Supplementing wire mesh as a secondary reinforcement when inhibiting early shrinkage cracking is important.
  • Reducing concrete permeability.
  • Greater impact and abrasion resistance of concrete.
  • Areas requiring non metallic secondary reinforcement.
  • Cohesive mix designs for concrete.
  • Areas requiring secondary reinforcement that resists alkalis, chemicals and chlorides.
