Fiber reinforcing will reduce the potential for cracking and improve the impact and abrasion resistance of your concrete slab. Fibermesh fibers are engineered exclusively for concrete use and manufactured in fibrillated form — bundles of interconnected strands. These fibers are uniformly distributed throughout the concrete in all directions, providing effective secondary reinforcement for shrinkage crack control. As the concrete hardens and shrinks, microscopic cracks develop. When the micro-cracks intersect a Fibermesh strand, they are blocked and prevented from developing into macro-cracks and potential problems. The addition of Fibermesh fibers throughout the concrete also serves to minimize the width and length of those cracks that may appear in the hardened state.
