Why is synthetic fiber the right solution in concrete flooring applications and not steel rebar?

After the rapid development in the production of synthetic fibers and their wide availability at good prices, the use of reinforcing steel mesh “mats” has become a major engineering mistake for the following reasons:

  • Saves 50% in financial costs for the same loads and thicknesses
  • Synthetic fibers give the required resistance to floors, no matter how high
  • Synthetic fibers protect the floor from cracks and extend the life of concrete
  • Synthetic fibers provide the labor needed to distribute iron
  • Synthetic fibers enable you to use less floor thickness without cracking problems
  • Synthetic fibers protect the insulation under the concrete layer from perforation
  • The use of fibers in concrete floors saves time by 100%
