FibroMac - Fibres for Concrete
Maccaferri FibroMac polypropylene fibres are composed of extremely fine polymer filaments produced by an extrusion process. Synthetic fibres do not bring structural benefits to the concrete, but bring other advantages. They are primarily used to protect the integrity of the concrete when it is subjected to high temperatures and direct heat, such as fires. They dramatically reduce thermal spalling. FibroMac synthetic fibres also improve plastic shrinkage and freeze-thaw cracking.
DOSO dosage machines for Wirand® and FibroMac™
Our machines are used to provide the appropriate dosage of Wirand® steel fibres or FibroMac™ synthetic fibres into the concrete mix, in the production of Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC).
The dosage equipment can be integrated within our client’s concrete plant or stand alone to suit the project scale and client requirements. The DOSO equipment for Wirand® steel fibres and POLYDOSO for FibroMac™ synthetic fibres consists of a variety of weighing, separation and dispensing systems to deliver the predetermined dosage of fibres into the mix.
Dosage by vibration (DOSO) or air pressure (POLYDOSO), ensure the even dispersal of the fibres into the rest of the concrete mix ingredients.
Important note: The Bekaert-Maccaferri joint venture: In October 2014, we entered into a global sales and distribution JV with Bekaert. The resulting joint venture, BekaertMaccaferri Underground Solutions will serve underground construction markets on a worldwide basis, except in mainland China and Hong Kong, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay, where Bekaert and Maccaferri will continue to operate independently.
In mainland China and Hong Kong, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay only, Maccaferri offers Steel Fibres Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) for use within industrial flooring, concrete slabs and precast concrete products.
