What Is Fiber Mesh?

Fiber Mesh  What Is Fiber Mesh? Fiber MeshFiber mesh is typically polypropylene (plastic) fibers introduced into the mix during the batching process. Harmon Concrete uses this method as well. These fibers serve as a secondary reinforcement in the concrete. In most cases, fibers can replace welded wire fabric as a means of secondary reinforcement. 

Fiber mesh concrete proves a one-step fiber reinforcement system. Fibermesh fibers are engineered for concrete in compliance with building codes to provide top-to-bottom, side-to-side uniform micro reinforcement as a cost-effective and superior alternate system to wire mesh. 

If you could look into a cube of Fibermesh concrete, this is what you would see: millions of virgin polypropylene Fibermesh fibers uniformly distributed in all directions throughout the concrete mix. As micro cracks begin to develop due to water loss and shrinkage, the cracks intersect with Fiber mesh fibers which block their growth and provide higher tensile strain capacity at this critical time.  So, the cracks won´t develop into macro cracks and problems. This has been proven in test after test in independent laboratories and verified on jobsites throughout the world.

Fiber mesh fibers provide concrete micro-reinforcement without affecting mix design and additives, pumpability or placing set times or finishing.
