Why Use Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete?
High Zirconia Alkali-Resistant Chopped Fiberglass
strengthens concrete and helps prevent cracking from shrinkage.
When both Chopped Fiberglass
and Fiberglass Net
are used together in a concrete countertop application, steel reinforcement is not necessary.
Chopped fibers can be used in conjunction with more traditional methods of support such as re-bar and metal netting for additional internal support.
Concrete Countertop Fibers are 1/2 inch (13mm) in length and are included in both the Concrete Countertop Mix
and Concrete Countertop Admix
Add 17.5 grams of chopped fiber to every 50lbs of standard 5000psi concrete countertop mix.
