Fibernet Makes Concrete Better


Reinforcing Fiber vs. Welded
Wire Fabric

Reinforcement Fibers Welded Wire Fabrics (WWF)
Reduction of permeability Can increase permeability
Bonds effectively with concrete permanently Bond can deteriorate over time
Improves surface durability No surface protection provided
Improves impact, shatter and abrasion resistance Minor resistance provided if properly placed
Easy to use and cost effective - no labor costs Difficult to install and expensive - high labor costs
Made in U.S.A. Not always made in the U.S.A.

What Makes it Better?

FIBERNET fibers main objective is controlling drying shrinkage cracks in slab-on-grade applications. Previously mats or rolls of welded wire were used. The added costs of handling, delivery, storage, and injuries make synthetic fibers a better choice. During the pouring and finishing process, the polypropylene fibers spread through the concrete mix aiding in suspension of the aggregates and promoting uniform bleeding.

FIBERNET fibers are package is small, water-soluble bags which are added to the concrete during batching. The manufacturer recommends 5-7 minutes of mixing at high speed prior to pouring to ensure thorough dispersion of the fibers. The result is uniformly distributed fibers that provide three-dimensional reinforcement to the concrete. Fiber is hard at work in every square inch of concrete, unlike welded wire.
