WHAT IS FIBRE REINFORCED CONCRETE
Fibre reinforced concrete makes use of additional fibrous materials in its mix, which are equally distributed across the material to provide additional levels of support and structural integrity. This mix brings numerous advantages to the structures they are applied to, all of which account for better structural integrity and load bearing performance.
The mixture is typically made up of cement, mortar, and a mixture of fibres which may typically include steel, glass, synthetic or natural fibres.
