Polymer fibers

Admir Technologies markets diverse types of polymer fibers.

Advantages of polymer fibers:

  • Dramatic delay in the appearance of splashes on the concrete during combustion.
  • Reducing fluids penetration into the concrete.
  • Improving the concrete’s strength for bending and tensile loads (as a result of a homogeneous distribution within the concrete mixture).
  • Shortening the execution time.
  • Reduce plastic cracking in concrete.
  • Reduce the penetrability of combustion inhibitors due to the blockage of air voids within the concrete.
  • Improve abrasion resistance.

 

The utilization of polymer fibers in general and polypropylene fibers in particular is prevalent when providing the following solutions:

 

  • Strengthening the concrete and the abrasion resistant layer.
  • Protection against the formation of minuscule cracks due to the concrete’s shrinkage.
  • Preventing damages to the concrete due to temperature differences.
  • Excellent resistance against chemical and aggressive materials attacks.

 

Polymer fibers are utilized in diverse applications:

 

  • Industrial floors.
  • Bridges.
  • Concrete that requires the addition of a combustion preventive component.
  • Sprayed concrete.
  • Self-leveling concrete.
  • Prefabricated (pre-cast) elements in tunneling (using the TBM method).
