Level 3 Reinforcement
“REINFORCE, NEVER RE-CHAIR “
Green Umbrella® Fiber MacX™ is a variable dose, high impact resistant, wear-resistant, secondary reinforcement concrete fiber uniquely designed to enhance durability, fatigue, and flexural strength and performance. Providing isotropic, three-dimensional, stick fiber reinforcement with a strength comparable to WWM or light rebar without the potential for failure due to alkali or corrosion. The even dispersion promotes impermeable concrete that is resistant to concrete cracking due to fatigue. Secondary reinforcement with equal strength to Welded Wire Mats (WWM) – FiberMacX reinforces without the need for large mats or light rebar materials, labor and installation, as well as potential vapor barrier damage due to puncture. The elimination of standard wire mats or rebar eliminates potential future failure due to corrosion. Place and finish crews no longer have to maintain steel reinforcement across a complete grade or deck, eliminating the need for re-tying bars or re-setting chairs. Attack crack formation and reinforce the concrete matrix with doses starting at 3lb per c/y with 4x the other products’ macro fiber count.
The next generation of reinforcement
Green Umbrella & FiberMacX
Green Umbrella™ FiberMacX mechanically locks in the fresh concrete matrix, controlling cracking.
FiberMacX is a secondary reinforcement that replaces wire mesh and light rebar. It eliminates permanent weakening of the concrete caused by crack formations. FiberMacX is durable, fatigue resistant with added flexural toughness and impact resistance.
It Improves your bottom line.
FiberMacX displaces evenly. It doesn’t clump or protrude, making it transparent in the mix, meaning it does not affect the final look , including when polished or dyed.
Cut Your Labor
Reinforcement in the mix.
Comparable to adding wire mesh mat and rebar into the concrete mixer… Instead of spending hours tying metal and mesh reinforcement on the ground, FiberMacX is reinforcement within the mix.
Cut Your Downtime
Repair time dramatically reduced.
The need to return to cracks and repair them is dramatically reduced/eliminated. After the pour and finish, a project moves forward without needing to set aside time for repairs such as punctured vapor barriers, cracking due to mat misplacement or plastic cracking.
Cut Your Environmental Impact
Less manufactured materials are needed. For example, the amount of large, heavy metal mats and rebar is reduced, meaning less industrial waste and transportation pollution.
