Synthetic Fibre

Conforce MP48 Synthetic Fibre

Conforce MP 48 is a macro poly synthetic fibre manufactured from virgin polypropylene. MP 48 macro poly fibres have an advantage over carbon steel fibre when used for pre-cast water tanks. They provide weight saving and prevent any staining in the finished product.

The fibres are dimpled along their entire length to form a good mechanical bond with the concrete and provide multi directional reinforcement in the concrete. They have a minimum tensile strength of 500mpa.

MP 48 Synthetic Fibres

  • Are simple to use, easy to handle and do not ‘ball’ during mixing.
  • Reduce labour time and costs when placing concrete
  • Save labour costs by replacing rebar and mesh
  • Significantly reduce preparation time for pre-cast moulds
  • Provide multi directional reinforcement
  • Do not require any specialised finishing equipment
  • Improve impact resistance and crack width control
  • Can be used with all types of cement and concrete
  • Provide corrosion resistance in water tanks
  • Are economical to use

Mixing Information

The fibres must not be added first, they can be gradually added by conveyor during the batching process or at the end of the batching process. The mixing drum should be rotated at full speed for five minutes after the fibres are added to ensure even fibre distribution. The concrete slump should be checked and adjusted after mixing.

Wrapped in dissolvable packs and packed in 5kg cartons.
Keep dry, store under cover.
