Improved performance of
concrete through the use of fibers
Fiber concrete is a composite of concrete matrix and fibers. With MasterFiber the conventional steel reinforcement can be partially or completely replaced.
Reinforced concrete is the most used building material. However steel is heavy and difficult to handle – and hence costly. Therefore, Master Builders Solutions presents a lightweight yet strong alternative: MasterFiber. Mixed into the fresh concrete, the fibers form an internal network and add superior tensile properties to the concrete elements.
The result is improved crack control and stronger concrete. To find the optimal mix of steel mesh and fibers, the experts from Master Builders Solutions provide an integral service, supporting their customers by means of structural calculations and the installation of dosing equipment.
Benefits at a Glance
Reduced costs thanks to less material used in the concrete element and a reduction in labor costs due to a more efficient design.
Polypropylene structural macrofibers can replace partially or totally the steel rebars and steel meshes used in different types of concrete structures.
The use of fiber allows to avoid problems related to corrosion.
Significantly reduced CO2 emissions thanks to the use of less steel.
