Expressly formulated to address early age cracking problems, Fibermesh microsynthetic fibers prevent 80-100% of all cracks in the plastic state – precisely when most cracks occur. During the plastic settlement phase, the fibers create a three-dimensional support network that resists the downward pull of gravity, thus keeping aggregates in suspension and promoting uniform bleeding. This network increases the tensile strain capacity of concrete during the plastic shrinkage phase as well. Another advantage of polypropylene fibers is their ability to mitigate the explosive tendency of concrete during fires, because they melt and relieve volatile steam pressure in concrete. Even finishing Fibermesh products is easy. In applications where aesthetics are especially important, you can choose a Fibermesh product that provides a virtually invisible finish. In sum, it is clear why Fibermesh remains the world’s most specified concrete reinforcement fiber, year after year.
