PE-2®

OVERVIEW

FORTA PE-2® fiber is an easy to apply, fully oriented, 100% virgin copolymer polyethylene monofilament fibrous reinforcement.

This 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. FORTA PE-2 fiber is non-corrosive and non-magnetic.

APPLICATIONS

FORTA PE-2 fiber is typically used in refractory castable concrete applications to provide early cohesiveness and green strength, and to provide uniform vapor-release/burn-out channels within the mass during firing.  Requires no mix design or placement changes.

INSTALLATION

FORTA PE-2 fiber is used at varying dosage levels to provide satisfactory burnout results for specific application requirements.  FORTA PE-2 fiber is added directly to the cementitious material mixing system during, or after, the batching of the other ingredients and mixed at the time and speed recommended by the mixer manufacturer.
