Macro-Synthetic Sinusoid Emboss Fiber

MACRO-SYNTHETIC FIBER SINUSOID EMBOSS is the latest high performance macro-synthetic fiber developed from the innovative technology. MACRO-SYNTHETIC SINUSOID EMBOSS has been specifically designed to satisfy the demanding requirements of modern-day concrete and shotcrete reinforcement and equipment.

ADVANTAGESOF MACRO-SYNTHETIC SINUSOID EMBOSS FIBERS:

  • Requires no minimum amount of concrete cover
  • Always positioned in compliance with codes
  • Safe and easier to use than traditional reinforcement.
  • Saves time
  • Packaged for easy dosing into the concrete mix

PRODUCT USE

MIXING: The specified dosage per m3 should be added to the mixer after batching the other concrete materials. After the addition of the fibers, the concrete should be mixed for sufficient time (batch plant: minimum 5 minutes or 70 revolutions) at full mixing speed to ensure uniform distribution of the fibers throughout the concrete mix.

PLACING: macro synthetic polyolefin fibers can be pumped, sprayed or placed using conventional equipment.

FINISHING: Conventional techniques and equipment can be used when finishing macro synthetic fiber concrete.

APPLICATION RATE: The application rate for macro-synthetic fibers will vary depending on the application, mix design and the toughness requirements of each project Typically, macro synthetic fibers dosage will be in the range of 1.5 kg/m3 to 8 kg/m3) of concrete. When used in conjunction with Fibermesh 150 fibers our fibrillated Mesh the dosage rate and the performance of the sprayed concrete can be optimized economically.

Macro synthetic fibers are compatible with all concrete admixtures and performance enhancing chemicals.
