In recent years, reinforcing fibers for modified mortars have gained great popularity among concrete product manufacturers. This is especially true for the decorative and finishing industry, where good strength is required with a thin layer of concrete.
Polypropylene fiber provides an increase in the strength properties of the mortar due to the formation of micro-reinforcement and prevents the formation of shrinkage cracks in the initial phase of setting and hardening of the mixture. In addition, it increases the fatigue stress resistance of the final design and limits surface abrasion during operation.
Features of polypropylene fiber
Fiber is made on the basis of cleaned polypropylene fiber, and m3 contains more than 250 million fibers from 8 to 20 mm long. Thanks to the lubrication technology, during mixing, all fibers in the mass of concrete are evenly delaminated without excessive adhesion to each other.
When working, it is recommended to use a ratio of 0.9 kg / m3 of concrete. It should also be borne in mind that the longer the fiber length, the coarser the resulting surface will be.
Fiber is supplied in sealed bags from 0.9 to 5 kg. and it is immediately ready to mix in the solution.
Advantages of polypropylene fiber
Polypropylene fibers have several advantages of their own:
- can be used for any products and designs;
- have low hygroscopicity;
- significantly improve the strength properties in a thin layer of concrete;
- can replace standard steel mesh.
If small and medium loads are expected on the product at high production volumes, the fiber is very economically beneficial to use. Its cost is much lower than that of reinforcement and steel reinforcing mesh, and the savings can be about 80%.
