Synthetic fibres can be used in a wide range of applications from secondary shrinkage reinforcement to primary reinforcing in underground shotcrete.
Fibercon has been a leading company in steel fibres for 15 years during which time we have closely watched the synthetic evolution.
We have studied many fibres and their specific applications worldwide, and have chosen the following fibres as representing the best value and performance.
Nycon Fibres are a cost-effective, advanced technology fibre solution that is superior to any other synthetic fibre or welded-wire reinforcement. Nycon Fibres are a multifilament bundle that transforms the way concrete behaves. You can pump it, place it and work faster, easier and more affordable.
Fibercon MP47 is a macro-structural synthetic fibre that provides optimum performance and strength. Fibercon MP47 is ideally suited to any external slab on grade applications as well as precast and shotcrete. It is also ideal for corrosive environments as it will not corrode. Easy handling, recycled packaging leaves no waste onsite as the entire box is thrown into the mix during batching. The fibre is evenly dispersed through the matrix ensuring no balling or pumping problems occur. It substantially speeds up construction and reduces labour time by completely eliminating the need for steel mesh reinforcement.
Emesh completely replaces virgin plastic fibres or steel reinforcing mesh.
Emesh by Fibercon upcycles plastic to deliver innovative reinforced concrete. Small recycled plastic macro polypropylene fibres are added to concrete to replace shrinkage steel. Emesh completely replaces non-recycled plastic fibres or steel reinforcing mesh.
100% recycled plastic is a 90% reduction in C02 compared to steel mesh.
