Competence in synthetic fibres
Solutions with Swiss quality products
Synthetic fibres are replacing conventional steel reinforcement, both for economic and technical reasons. Over 30 years of development work have gone into our high performance fibres. Our concepts help to significantly improve cost effectiveness and ecology.Product overview
Versatile solutions in diverse areas
Over the course of many years, millions of square metres of floors in production halls, warehouses and shopping centres have already been reinforced with high-performance synthetic fibres. Depending on what is required, different types of fibres are used. If necessary, our engineers prepare a free, static calculation based on the latest standards.
Over the course of many years, hundreds of thousands of square metres of weathered and heavily used exterior surfaces have already been reinforced with our synthetic fibres. Depending on what is required, different types of fibres are used. For low to medium loads, we recommend Fibrofor High Grade, a splice fibre specially developed for this purpose. For high loads, on the other hand, Fibrofor Diamond, a high-performance monofibre, comes into play.
Precast concrete parts
The production and installation of steel reinforcement in the precast part industry is often very time-consuming and cost-intensive. And the increasingly complex shapes of the parts pose an additional challenge. The use of Concrix eliminates or mitigates these problems by massively reducing the use of steel or even replacing it completely.
Our Fibrofor High Grade, Fibrofor Diamond or Concrix fibres are used for roads, roundabouts, bus stops, field tracks, etc. Our fibres’ resistance to salt water and also to alkali and acid ensures the durability and long life of the surfaces.
In the agricultural sector, hundreds of thousands of square metres of floors in cattle sheds, machine sheds, driving silos, slurry pits, cesspools, grain stores, etc. have already been reinforced with our fibres. Synthetic fibres are especially ideal for the agricultural sector, as they are resistant to aggressive liquids and also eliminate the risk of injury to animals.
The use of synthetic macrofibres in shotcrete is widespread and established. As an alternative to steel fibres and steel mesh reinforcement, the bicomponent macrofibre Concrix offers additional advantages in terms of durability, sustainability and resource conservation.
Concrete surfaces in contact with water
One thing sewage treatment plants, sewers and parts of power plants all have in common is that there is a high risk of conventional steel reinforcement corroding due to penetrating water. Sewage treatment plants and sewers are even more problematic, as they are often exposed to particularly aggressive liquids.
Special applications, such as edge beams for bridges, cycling tracks, artificial ice rinks, slope stabilisation, excavation pit stabilisation, repairs and much more, are other possible uses where the right synthetic fibre can make an important contribution.
