Transparent and Stronger from Top to Bottom

Green Umbrella® FiberLite™ is a low dosage, insoluble, transparent in the mix, uniquely designed, secondary reinforcement concrete fiber. Providing isotropic, monofilament fiber reinforcement that displaces evenly, without clumping or unsightly protruding from concrete commonly seen in other fibers. The even dispersion and transparency in the mix make it the best choice for exposed architectural concrete with integral or dyed floors and all exposed concrete finishes, vertical or horizontal. FiberLite provides added protection from sudden temperature fluctuation and wind changes that cause unsightly plastic cracking, providing value engineering with the lowest dosage per c/y for standard fibers. Transparent in placement and finishing, providing no burden to the finish crew. Secondary reinforcement with equal strength to welded wire mesh. FiberLite reinforces without needing large mats, installation, or potential vapor barrier damage due to puncture. FiberLite can be used as an alternative or combined with wire mesh to reduce cracking due to stress in the slab. It provides three-dimensional, next-generation reinforcement throughout the concrete.

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 reinforcement throughout the concrete.

FiberLite is a monofilament fiber that displaces evenly. It doesn’t clump or protrude and is transparent in the mix, meaning it does not affect the final look of the concrete, including when polished or dyed.

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 & Benefits

• Enhances performance and durability
• Provides secondary reinforcement
• Eliminates plastic shrinkage cracking up to 100%
• Alkali resistant and non-corrosive
• Insoluble in water
• No fiber protrusion for easy finishing
• High-impact resistance
• Excellent bond with concrete paste

Additional Features & Benefits

Additional benefits in this application include the plastic shrinkage cracking mechanism and the reduced volume change due to thermal and moisture variables. Further quantifiable benefits would be gained by using this three-dimensional reinforcement system, including enhanced surface abrasion resistance and impact resistance.

FiberLite is transparent in the mix
