REINFORCING FIBERS FOR CONCRETE • Ed McLean - 2pm August 22nd.

Reinforcement fibers enhance the strength and durability of concrete by reducing plastic shrinkage cracking. Fiber adds value and improves permeance to concrete. This is vital for offering a superior product and gaining a competitive edge. Learn how to best integrate fiber with the help of Ed McLean, former Director of Fiber Sales for Solomon Colors.


 

What is Ultrafiber 500

Solomon UltraFiber 500 is an alkaline resistant cellulose microfiber for concrete reinforcement. UltraFiber 500 provides an excellent alternative to traditional secondary reinforcement – improving durability, impact resistance, shatter resistance, and freeze/thaw resistance without compromising appearance or finishability.

Sustainability


 

 

UltraFiber 500 is natural fiber made from the longest, thickest cellulose fiber from the Loblolly Slash Pine in North America. UltraFiber 500 supports green building strategies. Unlike synthetic fiber reinforcement, UltraFiber 500 is derived from natural, renewable sources, making it the environmentally conscious choice.

Strength & Durability

UltraFiber 500 has been proven to reduce plastic shrinkage cracking, improve durability, and decrease the effects of freeze/thaw.

Hydration

Cellulose is hydrophilic. This means that, unlike polypropylene and other synthetic fibers, UltraFiber 500 absorbs water and improves concrete/hydration. This makes for stronger concrete with less internal micro-cracking.

Alkali Resistance

UltraFiber 500 meets ASTM and ICC standards for alkali resistance. The UltraFiber 500 fibers will not deteriorate or lose strength when exposed to high alkali environments.

Appearance


UltraFiber 500 is the only fiber for decorative concrete. With no balling or fuzzing, UltraFiber 500 will not affect the appearance of the concrete. UltraFiber 500 is the only fiber on the market that will accept color, making it ideal for colored concrete and stained concrete.

Efficiency

With an industry-unique automated dispenser, UltraFiber is the safe and efficient choice. The UltraFiber Automated Dispenser doses precise loadings of fiber directly into the mix, without workers manually handling sacks of fiber. Water-soluble 1 lb. and 1.5 lb. bags make manual dosing simple. 600 lb. super sacks are designed for Automated Dispenser maximum ease and efficiency.
