GREEN-NET®

GREEN-NET®FORTA® GREEN-NET® is made from 100% recycled polypropylene. It is an easy-to-finish polypropylene fibrous reinforcement in a collated fibrillated (network) form. FORTA® GREEN-NET® is used to reduce plastic and hardened concrete shrinkage, settlement cracking, improved impact strength, increase fatigue resistance and concrete toughness. This heavy-duty fiber offers long-term durability, and true secondary/temperature control by incorporating a fibrillated pattern and long length option. Non-corrosive, non-magnetic, 100% alkali proof, and 100% recycled.

APPLICATIONS

FORTA® GREEN-NET® is used in quality concrete applications such as slab-on-grade, overlays/toppings, curbs, slop paving, roads and highways, driveways, sidewalks, and shotcrete – anywhere that peak fiber performance is desired and where the objective is to control shrinkage cracking while improving basic durability properties and to increase the recycled material content of concrete. Requires No Mix Design or Placement Changes!

INSTALLATION

Recommended dosage rate of FORTA® GREEN-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.
