Synthetic microfiber for concrete is a type of fiber that is smaller than 0.3 mm. Microfibers are used for different purposes, but one of its main uses is in the field of construction.
Synthetic microfiber for concrete, also known as fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) is used in construction to strengthen the structure. Fiber reinforced concrete is used to check shrinkage and thus prevent cracking. They also put a stop to water bleeding into the concrete by reducing its permeability. It can also be used to create structures that are resistant to abrasion and shattering. The ratio of fibers to the concrete determine its various qualities and advantages.
There are significant advantages of using synthetic microfiber for concrete, depending on what kind of mixture it is. These microfibers can improve cohesion, resistance to alternate freezing and heating, fires, explosions, structural strength, ductility, durability, etc.
Brugg Contec AG offers two main types of synthetic fiber for concrete: Fibrofor High Grade and Concrix. These products are fully compliant with the international regulations. The products are also CE-certified according to EN-14889-2.
Fibrofor is a fiber for reinforced concrete that comes in several forms. Fibrofor High Grade is a successful substitute for steel in construction. It reduces the weight of the structure. Fibrofor Standard is a product that is used in sub-flooring and screeds as well as in mortar, while Fibrofor Multi is a multifilament fibre, which is excellent for reducing concrete shrinking and increasing fire resistance.
Concrix is another fiber for reinforced concrete, it is a bi-component macrofiber with a core and a shell. It has high resistance to tension and excellent bonding ability with the concrete. This product is specially designed for primary reinforcement of concrete.
These and other products of Brugg Contec AG have proved to be very useful and popular in the construction industry.
