Unlike traditional reinforcing methods, Fibermesh® fibers are uniformly distributed throughout the concrete mix and are designed to intercept a crack propagation. The fibers become an integral part of the concrete composition.
Fibermesh® micro concrete fibers reduce the formation of plastic shrinkage and settlement cracks by reducing the segregation of the concrete ingredients while adding tensile strain capacity to plastic concrete. This reduction or elimination of plastic cracks enables the concrete to develop its optimum long-term integrity and increase robustness.
The Fibermesh® “network of reinforcement” reaches every cubic inch (mm) of the concrete section for uniform reinforcement that minimizes early age cracking, reduces water migration, increases impact, abrasion and shatter resistance and provides residual strength and crack protection throughout.
Available with patented e3® technology that is engineered in specific lengths, thicknesses and mix ratios to enhance uniform distribution in fresh concrete.
The Novomesh® B&BA (macro) and Novomesh® B&BA (steel) are compliant with industry regulations for the reinforcement of Block & Beam toppings as required by the NHBC, BBA and others. Optimised for use in either self-compacting or regular concretes, Novomesh B&BA is available through your local ready mix supplier.
