ECONO-MONO®FORTA® ECONO-MONO® is an easy-to-finish, fully oriented, 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® ECONO-MONO® is non-corrosive, chemically inert, and 100% Alkali Proof!


FORTA® 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 cracking while improving basic durability properties. Requires No Mix Design or Placement Changes!


Recommended standard dosage rate of FORTA® 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).
