POLYFIBER PP

 

 POLYFIBER-P.P. is most often used as an alternative system to secondary wire mesh in slab on grade and large area of cased Concrete. 

POLYFIBER-P.P. will provide better impact, abrasion and shatter resistance, it will reduces permeability, increase freeze-thaw resistance and in addition, increase toughness and durability
 
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
 
- Slab on grade.
- Drive ways and parking lost 
- Sidewalks & Shot Crete Toppings. 
- Septic Tanks & other prepackaged items.
- Water Channels.
- Concrete Canals.

GUIDE FOR APPLICATION
 
PROCESSING 
POLYFIBER-P.P. is packed in per measured bags with required projects size, ranging dose starts from 0.8 Kg Per cubic meter.
Add POLYFIBER-P.P. into the mixer and mix for 4-5 minutes or 60-70 revolution at full speed to insure uniform distribution.
 
PLACING / FINISHING
 
Fiber reinforced concrete may appear slightly stiffer than plain concrete without affecting 
workability, it increases the concrete cohesive properties. 
 
 
However, if additional workability is required, a water reducer or super plasticizer should be used instead of adding water. 
This increase in cohesion will also reduce segregation, resulting in less or slower bleeding. With this in mind, it is important not to begin finishing too early.

TECHNICAL SERVICES
 
For any further technical advice and recommendation for the use of all POLYCOO products, please consult the nearest POLYCOO technical office.
Finishing is accomplished best with steel or magnesium trowels and floats, wooden tools open the surface and may expose additional fibers. Also, it is not recommended to use a tin. 
Rake to move or place fiber reinforced concrete. The tins can disrupt the fibers uniform three dimensional distributions. 
For exterior textured or broom finishes, use a dry stiff bristled broom.
If you require any special application please consult, POLYCOO – Technical department for dosage rate.
 
PACKAGING
 
Normally 0.8 kg. Per pack.

Quick Overview:

  • Short Description:

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION POLYFIBER-P.P. Polypropylene fiber is a low density fiber that quickly and easily mixes with the concrete mass creating a very effective multidirectional secondary reinforcement. The use of POLYFIBER-P.P. will greatly reduce the formation of plastic shrinkage cracking by increasing the tensile capacity of the paste fraction of the concrete. This reduction of plastic cracks enables the concrete to develop its optimum design strength.
