Fibre Concrete

Fibre Concrete

The addition of polypropylene and steel fibres to a mix produces a concrete that is more resistant to cracking and has reduced bleeding and settlement. Concrete containing fibres is more resistant to abrasion and impact

Improves plastic properties of concrete

✓ Minimizes bleeding
✓ Minimizes plastic settlement
✓ Reduces or eliminates plastic shrinkage cracking

Improves hardened properties of concrete

✓ Increased impact resistance
✓ Increased abrasion resistance

Economical

✓ Can be used to eliminate crack control mesh in top of slabs

Safer

✓ Eliminates explosive spalling in fires




Fibre Reinforced
Fibre reinforcement is distributed
evenly throughout the concrete mix
 Mesh Reinforced
Steel reinforcement  requires exact positioning to be effective

Project Spotlight


World Trade Centre Exhibition Hall Expansion - Dubai

Floors for the Exhibition hall of the World Trade Centre were cast using steel fibre concrete to cut down on reinforcement steel costs, reduce construction time and produce a more durable, crack resistant concrete.
