Fibre
 
  • NEW PRODUCT

    CHRYSO Cryplon Fibre (Synthetic Micro-Fibre Forcocrete)

    Fibre is being introduced because of the rising cost of Mesh/Steel products in general. The fibre surface is treated to improve initial dispersion and bond in the concrete.

    Packaging

    The fibres are packed in water soluble bags. The bags are added to the mixer un-opened. See mixing instruction below.

    Advantages
     
    • Reduced plastic shrinkage cracks
    • Reduced plastic settlement
    • Reduced bleeding
    • Reduced water & chemical permeability
    • Alternative to crack control mesh


    Application
     
    • Internal floors
    • External hard standing
    • Pre-cast concrete
    • Water retaining structures
    • Repair materials
    • Concrete Structures


    Mixing

    The fibres should ideally be added to the concrete at the batch plant, during mixing. When this is not possible the fibres can be added on site into the back of the truck mixer. A minimum of 70 drum revolutions is required to ensure uniform dispersion of the fibres. (3 to 5 minutes on site mixing in the back of a RMC truck)
