REAL FIBRE

REAL FIBRE, is an engineered polypropylene fibre designed specifically for secondary reinforcing of concrete. REAL FIBRES are true monofilaments that totally disperse into the concrete mix when added at the batch plant or at the job site. REAL FIBRE is available in various lengths and deniers to provide optimum strength, reduced cracking and long-term concrete durability.

Primary Applications
Flatwork of industrial, commercial and residential concrete projects
Footings, foundations, walls and tanks
Concrete pipe, burial vaults and prestressed beams
The Benefits
Plastic Concrete
Controls or eliminates plastic shrinkage cracks
Reduces segregation
Minimizes bleed water
Provides three-dimensional reinforcing versus two-dimensional with wire mesh
Hardened Goncrete
Reduces cracking
lncreases surface durability
Reduces permeability
lncreases strengths
Other
Reduces in-place cost versus concrete with wire mesh
Faster form removal
Easy to use can be added to the concrete mix at any time prior to concrete placement

How To Use REAL FIBRE can be added any time prior to placement of the concrete. lt is recommended that it be added at the ready-mix concrete plant during batching, but it work equally well when introduced at the job site. REAL FIBRE must be mixed with the concrete for a minimum of 10 minutes at maximum drum speed to assure total dispersion and uniformity.
How ls lt Supplied REAL FIBRE is supplied in 0.6k9 bag, 30 bags per carton.
