Advantages

  • they eliminate the need to use anti-contraction steel grids
  • they effectively stop the formation of cracks and shrinkage cracks
  • they eliminate the formation of surface cracks
  • they improve the cohesion and homogeneity of concrete
  • they increase the strength of fresh concrete
  • they increase the durability of concrete elements
  • they increase concrete resistance to abrasion
  • they reduce the corrosion of concrete and reinforcing steel
  • they significantly increase the fire resistance and frost resistance of concrete
  • they limit the formation of concrete spalls during a fire
