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.
The density of FORTA MOBILE-MESH, which matches that of concrete, allows for exceptional dispersion by eliminating floating, sinking, clumping, and air entrapment, therefore, providing a seamless
concrete application. FORTA MOBILE-MESH rovings have a high Elastic Modulus and Tensile Strength, making it ideal as an effective reinforcement for any glass reinforced concrete project.
FORTA MOBILE-MESH can be easily added into a volumetric ready mix concrete truck with the help of a FORTA® patented fiber dispenser. This process requires no extensive equipment changes – making it a simple and easy investment to add long-term value to your concrete.
PACKAGING AND STORAGE
FORTA MOBILE-MESH rovings are protected by a shrink-wrap polythene film, which is opened at the top and should not be removed when the
product is in use. Rovings are packed on pallets either with or without boxes. FORTA MOBILE-MESH rovings should be stored away from heat and moisture and in their original packaging. Optimum conditions are temperatures between 15 and 35°C (60 and 95°F) and humidity between 35% and 65%. If the product is stored at lower temperatures it is advisable to condition it at working temperature for at least 24 hours before use, to prevent condensation.
