Fibers are slowly starting to replace the classical reinforcement made with steel bars or welded mesh.
For example, steel fibers provide with lower costs for labor and smaller prices per project, due to their quality and the small product amount needed to get a strong and safe disperse reinforcement.
Romfracht produces several types of fibers, with three main applications:
- Fibers for disperse reinforcement - FORTA FERRO and STEEL FIBERS (they replace steel bars and welded mesh)
- Fibers for screeds (for reinforcement and thermal control): SUPER NET, ECONO NET, ULTRA NET (These can completely replace the welded mesh for screeds ranging from 1 cm to 10 cm).
- Fibers that eliminate the microscopic cracks in any type of concrete: RAWWHITE fibers. These fibers are excellent for use with plasters. It is highly recommended that you use these fibers with reinforcement fibers or screed fibers.
If you use polypropylene fibers for concrete reinforcment, you can save even more!
FORTA FERRO are the polypropylene fibers recommended for disperse reinforcement, and the ratio between the amount of steel fibers and polypropylene fibers is roughly 10:1.
The fibers are very easy to use. They are to be tossed in the concrete machine (their packaging is easily soluble in water) and the concrete that is poured will be fully reinforced. Also, polypropylene fibers are lightweight, so you don't have to pay for manufacturing, assembly or transport.
