Ultra Polypropylene Fiber Concrete

Ultra Polypropylene Fibre Concrete(UPFC) is versatile and can be used in most applications. UPFC is added to the concrete during batching. Thousands of individual fibres are then evenly dispersed throughout the concrete during the mixing process creating a matrix-like structure.

Applications

  • Roof-slabs
  • External slabs (driveways, yards, etc.)
  • Roads, pavements, driveways, kerbs
  • Overlays, patch repair
  • Water retaining structures, marine applications
  • Security applications such as safes and strongrooms
  • Deep lift walls

Final Concrete Performance

  • Reduced plastic cracking means a reduction in surface permeability.
  • Enhanced durability.
  • Bleed water control inhibits migration.
  • Improved flexural properties.
  • Increased resistance to spalling at higher temperatures and hence….
  • better fire resistance.

Features and Benefits Plastic state advantages

  • The addition of fibres helps to maximize the intrinsic early strength of the concrete and specifically.
  • Improves concrete’s resistance to plastic shrinkage cracking, due to which frequency of plastic cracking is reduced.
  • Inhibits formation of micro-cracks due to dimensional change, hence durability will be improved and permeability will be reduced.
  • Reduces sedimentation, which decreases the risk of plastic settlement cracking over re-bar.
  • Polypropylene fibres actually help inhibit the formation of cracks in concrete, whereas steel mesh has only functional value once the concrete has cracked.

Working improvements

  • Polypropylene fibres offer many installation advantages, enabling a better job to be achieved in less time.
  • Due to Increased cohesion of the mix settlement is reduced and is easier to finish.
  • No requirement of crack control steel mesh.
  • Easier positioning of joints.
  • Concrete placement and crack control in ONE operation.
  • Easier finishing of the concrete surface
