Due to its extreme tensile strength our SITgrid carbon fibres are the perfect reinforcement where maximum performance is required. Its load carrying capacity is far superior to that of steel and glass fibres. Due to its tear resistance, it offers a higher performance spectrum than glass fibres, yet is priced as attractively. It is used in particularly highly loaded thin-walled components such as concrete furniture as an alternative to traditional steel reinforcement. It is easy to bend, simple to handle, and it does not rust. Use our CONCRETE CALCULATOR and the TEXTILE REINFORCED CONCRETE MANUAL to choose the right quality for you.
