Projects that utilize FORTA®’s synthetic fibers can see:
Reduction in Construction Time
Long-Term Cost Savings
Known as our most poplular fiber on the market, FORTA-FERRO® is used to reduce plastic and hardened concrete shrinkage, improve impact strength, and increase fatigue resistance and concrete toughness. This extra heavy-duty fiber also offers maximum long-term durability, structural enhancements, and effective secondary temperature crack control.
FORTA-GREEN® is a unique blend of recycled polypropylene and copolymer macro fibers designed specifically for pervious concrete applications. FORTA-GREEN blend consists of 100% recycled polypropylene fibrillated (network) fibers and a high-performance twisted-bundle macro-monofilament fiber, designed to mix, distribute, and finish well.
SUPER-NET® is a softer, gray-colored fibrillated (net-shaped) fiber that mixes and performs well without sacrificing a premium surface finish. Its ‘SUPER-NETWORKING’ power, long-term durability, and true secondary/temperature control incorporates a fibrillated pattern and long length option into the concrete mix.
ECONO-MONO® is a fully oriented and 100% virgin homopolymer polypropylene monofilament fibrous reinforcement. This economy grade fiber offers long-term durability, and functions as a plastic shrinkage reinforcement intended to reduce the formation of shrinkage cracks prior to initial set and to reduce settlement shrinkage.
FORTA® MOBILE-MESH™ is an alkali resistant glass fiber developed for modification and reinforcement of cement based applications to ensure increased long-term performance and durability. MOBILE-MESH will not rot or corrode and is unaffected by UV radiation, making it suitable for use with minimal cover.
PE-2® engineered fiber provides a mini-reinforcing system forming a more cohesive, inner-supported mix intended to reduce the formation of shrinkage cracks prior to initial set, as well as provide a rapid burn-out characteristic in the hardened mass after initial set. PE-2 is typically used in refractory castable concrete applications to provide early cohesiveness and green strength.
GREEN-NET® is made from 100% recycled polypropylene, made from post consumer polypropylene goods, which would normally be disposed of in area landfills. Some of these materials include battery casings, netting, cargo bags, carpet face fibers, packaging film, label stock, strapping, drinking straws, and seed bags.
CAST-MASTER® is a 100% virgin homopolymer polypropylene fiber reinforcement specifically designed and engineered by FORTA® for the precast industry. CAST-MASTER can improve every precast product and is compatible with all precast production manufacturing technologies. It is used to reduce slumping, cracking, and fallouts during precast stripping procedures – it increases production.
STUCCO-BOND® is a short, fine filament that mixes quickly and evenly in a wide variety of stucco, plaster, and mortar-like mixes. This engineered fiber provides a mini-reinforcing system forming a more cohesive, inner-supported mix that functions as a plastic shrinkage reinforcement intended to reduce the formation of shrinkage cracks prior to initial set.
The Big Shot®
The Big Shot® fiber transport system was designed to quickly and safely move synthetic fiber reinforcement from ground-level storage to upper-level concrete batching systems and concrete mixer trucks.
