Level Two
Fibrillated Microfiber Concrete Reinforcement
 
Ultra-Net

FORTA ULTRA-NET is an easy to finish, color blended, fully oriented, 100% virgin homopolymer polypropylene fiber reinforcement for concrete in a unique twisted-bundle, collated fibrillated (network) form. FORTA ULTRA-NET is used to reduce plastic and hardened concrete shrinkage, improve impact strength, increase fatigue resistance and concrete toughness. This extra heavy-duty fiber offers ULTRA-NETWORKING power, maximum long-term concrete durability, and true secondary/temperature control by incorporating a fibrillated pattern and long length option. Non-corrosive, non-magnetic and 100% Alkali Proof!

Level Three
Macrofiber Concrete Reinforcement

 

FORTA-FERRO

FORTA-FERRO is an easy-to-finish, color blended reinforcing fiber for concrete. Made of 100% virgin copolymer/ polypropylene, FORTA-FERRO consists of a twisted bundle non-fibrillating monofilament and a fibrillating network fiber, yielding a high-performance concrete reinforcement system. FORTA-FERRO is used to reduce plastic and hardened concrete shrinkage, improve impact strength, and increase fatigue resistance and concrete toughness. This extra heavy-duty fiber offers long-term concrete durability, structural enhancements, and effective secondary/temperature crack control by incorporating a truly unique synergistic fiber system of long length design. FORTA-FERRO is non-corrosive, non-magnetic, and 100% alkali proof!

Pervious concrete has been used in many countries for many years, and is now becoming more than just an oddity in the United States.  The impetus behind this surge in application is a growing need to take full advantage of shrinking building sites, and to accommodate storm-water runoff in the process.  Inherent to the air-void nature of pervious, or porous concrete, is the potential for a lack of durability and toughness, which often impacts application choices and project volume.  Experts in the art of pervious materials and practice have long sought out ways to improve the material’s durability, and to add to the long-term comfort level of owners that choose it and architects that specify it.  Synthetic fibers have been tested and used for many years to add an element of crack control, however these fibers have been somewhat limited by shape and dosage, and have not offered a contribution level that could be considered as significant to this long-term durability goal.  The advent of second-generation synthetic macro fibers has opened a door of opportunity for this application, one that continues to morph and change with new project experience and laboratory study.
