Shotcrete

fibermesh_fpoShotcrete is unique, both in technique and applications. It makes sense that experts at Fibermesh® would offer third party fully tested and proven solutions to meet the specific needs of shotcrete projects. These solutions, including Enduro® macrosynthetic fibers, Fibermesh® macro/micro synthetic fibers, and Novocon® steel fibers, bring safety and ease-of-use benefits that traditional reinforcement options just can’t match.

Trusted in Critical Applications: Structural rehabilitation, Lining large underground cavities, Slope stabilization, Aqueduct rehabilitation, Channel linings, Ground support and stabilization, Mining, Marine structure repair and rehabilitation, Tanks, Seismic retrofits, Protection against fire spalling, Retaining walls and soil nailing, and Pools

DESIGNED TO PROTECT

  • Fibermesh®, Enduro®, and Novocon®, concrete macro fibers are designed to improve the flexural toughness, ductility and energy absorption of the shotcrete.
  • Provides superior crack control.
  • Offers three dimensional homogenous pumpable reinforcement, which is always positioned properly.
  • Fiber reinforced shotcrete can be applied quickly since the reinforcement is premixed into the sprayed concrete and does not need to be cut, spliced and fastened to the exposed earth surface, as is the case for tradition reinforcement.
  • Uniform fiber reinforced shotcrete thickness and reduced rebound results in significant reduction of shotcrete consumption.
  • Fiber reinforced shotcrete yields a strong bond to the earth surface which is required to make a system self-supporting.
  • Fibermesh® reinforced sprayed concrete can be used in both dry and wet applications.
  • Technical support available to provide designed solutions.
  • Products tested and proven independently to ASTM and European Standards.

THE REINFORCING NETWORK

Unlike traditional reinforce shotcrete, the Fibermesh® fibers are distributed three dimensionally throughout the shotcrete mix and are always positioned properly.

Traditional reinforced shotcrete can develop voids behind the welded wire mesh which can lead to water migration behind the shotcrete, eventual rusting of the traditional reinforcing and spalling of the shotcrete. Fiber reinforce dry or wet shotcrete develops a uniform bond to the rock without the hazard of working directly infront of an exposed surface.
