Concrete is the most available, durable and flexible material for most construction needs.
Greensense Concrete technology is an innovative concept for improving the eco-balance and technical performance of concrete, and as a consequence the structure created with it.
How does it work?
Greensense concrete contains a specially formulated mix of the standard concrete ingredients of cement, sand and aggregate, plus our own carefully balanced input of key performance additives, fly ash and Forta Ferro fibres.
These unique fibres, unlike any other fibres on the market, are one of the key components to providing full reinforcement. These are easy to finish, colour blended fibres, made of 100% virgin copolymer/proproylene, consisting of a twisted bundle non-fibrillating monofilament and a fibrillating network fibre, yielding a high performance concrete reinforcement system. The patented twisted-bundle technology allows the fibre to distribute quickly and uniformly without clumping or balling. The heavy-duty fibrils offer a non-fuzzy surface finish.
This extra heavy-duty fibre offers maximum long-term durability, structural enhancements, and effective secondary/temperature crack control by incorporating a truly unique synergistic fibre system of long length design. FORTA FERRO® is noncorrosive, nonmagnetic, and 100% alkali proof! Larger parole which are joint less. - STRUCTURAL CONCRETE FIBRES
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).
