ECONO-MONO®

OVERVIEW

FORTA® ECONO-MONO® is an easy to finish micro synthetic fiber, made of 100% virgin homopolymer polypropylene monofilament. This economy-grade fiber functions as aplastic shrinkage reinforcement intended to reduce the formation of shrinkage cracks prior to initial set and to reduce settlement shrinkage. ECONO-MONO is non-corrosive, non-magnetic, chemically inert, and 100% acid and alkali proof.

APPLICATIONS

ECONO-MONO is used in concrete applications such as slab-on-grade, curbs, driveways, sidewalks, basement floors, garage floors, colored concrete, and small precast products, to control plastic shrinkage – anywhere that the objective is to control plastic shrinkage cracking while improving basic durability properties.

Requires No Mix Design or Placement Changes!

INSTALLATION

Recommended standard dosage rate of ECONO-MONO is 1.0 lb. per cubic yard (0.6 kg. per cubic meter) of concrete added directly to the concrete mixing system during, or after, the batching of the other ingredients, and mixed at the time and speed recommended by the mixer manufacturer (usually four to five minutes).
