Concrete is the most widely used construction material on Earth, as it has proven to be the most durable. However, due to several tunnel fires in Europe and the increased threat of terrorism, public attention has been focused on the performance of structures both above and underground. This fibre acts as a passive fire protection substance which applies to not only the safety of structures, but the safety of people.
The Results Include:
- Dramatic reduction in explosive spalling
- Improved resistance to plastic shrinkage cracks
- Improved hardened state benefits, such as abrasion and impact resistance
- Increased permeability in the concrete structure
- Faster construction
- Reduced labour costs
