Chopped basalt fibre
BlackBar™ Basalt fibre is made by chopping continuous basalt fibre into short lengths.
Basalt fibres were designed to reduce the shrinkage cracks in concrete. These fibres are to be seen as substitutes to the commonly known polypropylene and steel fibres.
Basalt fibres can mix homogeneously with the fresh concrete and this in turn results in a reduction of the shrinkage in the screed. As a result, bending, tensile strength and surface quality of the concrete are increased and the surface quality of the concrete component is improved. Dispergated fibres are great for mixing with fresh mortars, screeds and similar cementitious matrices.
