With our basalt fibres you are technologically up to date. Compared to conventional fibres made from alkali resistant glass, laboratory tests prove up to 20% higher flexural strength of the concrete. Basalt fibres are also more heat resistant than glass fibres and thus the ideal reinforcement for refractory concrete, such as our GRISU®.
Rely on our basalt fibres for both refractory and normal concrete. The fibers are protected by a special waterproofing and thereby not sensitive to any alkalinity of the concrete. Use our CONCRETE CALCULATOR and the TEXTILE REINFORCED CONCRETE MANUAL to choose the right quality for you.
