FORTA SUPER-NET® is an easy to finish, color blended, fully oriented, 100% virgin homopolymer polypropylene fibrous reinforcement in a collated fibrillated (network) form. FORTA SUPER-NET® is used to reduce plastic and hardened concrete shrinkage, settlement cracking, improve impact strength, increase fatigue resistance and concrete toughness. This heavy-duty fiber offers SUPER-NETWORKING power, long-term durability, and true secondary/temperature control by incorporating a fibrillated pattern and long length option. Non-corrosive, non-magnetic and 100% Alkali Proof!
FORTA SUPER-NET® is used in quality concrete applications such as slab-on-grade, overlays/toppings, curbs, slope paving, roads and highways, driveways, sidewalks, shotcrete, tilt-up panels, architectural/colored concrete, precast, mortar, grout, water tanks, and sewage treatment facilities – anywhere that peak fiber performance is desired and where the objective is to control temperature/ shrinkage cracking while improving basic durability properties. Requires No Mix Design or Placement Changes!
Recommended dosage rate of FORTA SUPER-NET® is 1.5 lbs. per cubic yard (0.9 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). Contact your local FORTA® representative for alternate dosage rates used in specialty applications.
