What is it ?
Greensense concrete is a highly efficient, energy saving and cost effective way of producing structurally sound reinforced concrete for a range of applications.
The difference compared to standard concrete is that this system massively reduces or completely removes the requirement for steel reinforcement within concrete. Instead a one of a kind, world patented system of synthetic reinforcement (Forta Ferro) fibres is used. This structural method has been in use for over 30 years all over the world for a number of high profile projects. In Indonesia it has been successfully used in a range of developments.
FORTA-FERRO® is an advanced fiber which replaces steel reinforcement. A unique blend of 2 fibers, FORTA-FERRO®:
Reduces and controls shrinkage and temperature cracking, and Reduces slab curling and increases post-crack performance FORTA-FERRO® fiber is typically used in long lengths (2-1/4”) and in high dosages (2 - 4kg per cubic meter) to affect a higher replacement level of reinforcing steel than standard synthetic fibers. FORTA-FERRO®, which means “Strong As Steel” is also extremely user-friendly, having gained a reputation as the best mixing and finishing fiber of its kind in the industry.
What are the advantages?
Whether architectural or environmental considerations, Green Sense Concrete outperforms all competitors.
Lower Carbon Footprint
Reduces Bleed Protection
Self levelling and distribution
FORTA FERRO® has been tested worldwide for toughness, impact resistance, flexural strength, and residual strength. FORTA FERRO® has also been compared in residual strength (ASTM C-1399) to the major brands of steel fibres,resulting in an average replacement value of 1:10 (FORTA FERRO®: steel fibres). Floorslabs using this system have also been approved by the ACI (American Concrete Institute). It may be used to replace steel reinforcing mesh for slab on grade applications, precast tanks and products, etc and allows extended joint spacing (dependent on dosage, concrete strength, concrete thickness and end use).
