When you carry over 7000 products, it’s hard to choose favourites-but Forta Ferro Fibers have been pretty close since we began to carry them a few years ago. Forta Ferro Fibers are an easy-to-finish, colour blended fiber, made of 100% virgin copolymer/polypropylene consisting of a twisted bundle non-fibrillating monofilament and a fibrillating network fiber, yielding a high-performance concrete reinforcement system. That’s a lot of very long words, but what it comes down to, the fibers can be used as a substitute for rebar/wire mesh in horizontal applications for concrete projects! All the while reducing plastic and hardened concrete shrinkage, improving impact strength, and increasing fatigue resistance and concrete toughness. The extra heavy-duty fiber offers maximum long-term durability, structural enhancements, and effective secondary/temperature crack control by incorporating a truly unique synergistic fiber system of long length design.
Why Should You Use Them?
Still looking for a reason to use Forta Ferro Fibers? With supply issues and rising costs of steel, fibers are a perfect replacement for rebar and wire mesh (in horizontal applications) and are experiencing little to no delay on lead times. When we’ve talked with customers who have used Forta Ferro Fibers in their projects, they’re always excited about the benefits they’ve found including decreased labour costs, time and money are both saved without having to lay and tie rebar/ mesh, and are always impressed with the smooth finish they’re able to achieve with the fibers. To top it off, Forta Ferro fibers cannot corrode – adding longevity to your slab or project.
