Clever application of micro and macro fibres strengthens and protects concrete without the risks and disadvantages of steel reinforcement
Easily mixed into concrete, with excellent dispersion. Easier to use, transport and store than steel mesh.
Highly effective at preventing cracking, giving concrete a longer life while maintaining a superior surface.
Reduces the risk of concrete fracturing and exploding under heat and pressure – a feature vital for use in tunnels and mining.
Removing the need for steel mesh delivers a lower carbon footprint and keeps construction sites safer.
Our proprietary technologies create versatile materials in smart combinations that bring a unique set of solutions
Our engineered fibres protect marine concrete from structural failure due to chemical attacks from seawater and continual impact from waves or the ebb and flow of the tide.VISIT ADFIL
When our synthetic fibres are added to concrete they reduce cracking and shrinkage, add strength and extend lifespan. By removing the need for steel reinforcement they also reduce weight and simplify construction, making the building of internal and external floors, or manufacture of pre-cast concrete panels, safer, easier and faster.VISIT ADFIL
Be it for industrial, commercial or public use, all construction projects need absolute certainty around the groundwork they sit on. Our synthetic fibres strengthen concrete foundations and provide improved durability as well as extended life span of the finished concrete.VISIT ADFIL
Precasting enables concrete to be enormously versatile as a building material, and the addition of Adfil synthetic fibres enhances its performance even further. Manufacture is safer and more efficient when there’s no need for labour intensive steel reinforcement, and the increased impact resistance reduces the risk of damage during transport.VISIT ADFIL
When shotcrete is sprayed against a surface, up to 40% of it can rebound, disturbing the mix of small to coarse particles important for a consistent finish. When Adfil synthetic fibres are added to shotcrete, rebound falls, consistency is improved, cracking reduced and lifespan is increased.VISIT ADFIL
Adfil fibres improve the permeability of concrete, allowing steam to escape more easily in the event of a tunnel fire. This prevents the explosive spalling that makes over-heated concrete dangerous in tunnels and mines.VISIT ADFIL
