Fibres for concrete
Nordic Color is working together with the world's most innovative manufacturer of fibers and natural fibers for concrete… the Swiss company Contec Fiber. The objective of using these fibers is to obtain concrete with enhanced properties whilst, at the same time, reducing – or completely eliminating – the use of steel fibers or steel mech in the concrete.
Besides the already known technological and financial advantages of using fiber concrete, the Contec fibers also have additional advantages. When you purchase a fiber from Contec fiber you not only get the fiber, you also get their engineering expertise in making static calculations for each individual project for free – these will be in accordance with Eurocode 2, EN 206-1 and OVBB. These calculations meet all EU requirements.
Using fibers in concrete will always be better for the environment than using steel, but Contec Fiber has taken environmentally friendly and sustainable fibers for concrete to a new level. With their new nature Crackstop fiber "Fibrofor GREEN" it is now possible to make the concrete both more environmentally friendly and functional at the same time. The “green” fiber is very easy to use, relative cheap and perfectly suited to eliminate or reduce cracks in environmentally friendly constructions which are getting more and more common these days.
