Concrete Reinforcement

Level 2 Reinforcement

The next generation of reinforcement

Green Umbrella & Fiberlite

Green Umbrella™ Fiberlite is a uniquely designed concrete fiber that can be used as a powerful reinforcement.

Fiberlite can be used as an alternative or combined with wire mesh to reduce cracking due to stress on the slab. It gives three-dimensional reinfocement throughout the concrete.

Fiberlite is a hairy looking monofilament fiber that 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 introducing a wire mesh mat into the mixer, instead of spending hours tying metal and mesh reinforcement on the ground, Fiberlite is reinforcement in the mix.

Cut Your Downtime

Repair time dramatically reduced.

The time spent returning to cracks for repair 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

Materials reduced.

Less manufactured materials are needed. For example the amount of large, heavy metal mats is reduced, meaning less industrial waste and transportation pollution.

Compression Tests of Concrete Cylinders

Isotropic reinforcement means fiber reinforced concrete is stronger from top to bottom.

PRIMARY FEATURE:

Green Umbrella Fiberlite™ is a uniquely designed concrete fiber that can be used as a powerful reinforcement. Fiberlite can be used as an alternative or combined with wire mesh to reduce cracking due to stress on the slab.

Features and Benefits

• Enhanced durability, fatigue and flexural performance
• Provides secondary reinforcement with equal strength to WWM and light rebar
• Three dimensional reinforcement to prohibit cracking
• Alkali resistant & non-corrosive
• Reduced in place cost
• High impact resistance and wear resistance
• 4x Macro fiber count
• Excellent finish-ability

• Enhances performance & durability
• Provides isotropic reinforcement
• Eliminates most or all plastic shrinkage cracking
• Alkali resistant & non-corrosive
• Insoluble in water
• No fiber protrusion for easy finishing
• High impact resistance
• Excellent bond with concrete paste

Additional Features & Benefits for
Fiberlite Reinforcement Fibers
• Fiberlite added to concrete chemically locks in the fresh concrete matrix, controlling plastic shrinkage.
• Fiberlite provides secondary reinforcement which helps eliminate crack formation that causes permanent weakening of the resultant concrete.
• Significantly different than fibrillated products which don’t finish or pump well due to their stick-like structure

Fiberlite is transparent in the mix
