In today’s construction industry, innovation plays a crucial role, especially when it comes to materials that are both sustainable and cost-effective. Our fiber reinforced products are relatively new in the market and offer a promising solution for strengthening concrete structures. Discover the unique benefits and applications of fiberglass reinforced concrete, from technical specifications to impressive reference projects. Find out why our fiber reinforced products are a smart choice for your next construction project.
Applications and areas of application for fiberglass products
The reinforcement of concrete with fiber-reinforced products brings numerous benefits and has a wide range of applications. Here are a few to introduce you to our fiber reinforced products:
Apart from being environmentally friendly, lighter, and more resistant, fiberglass has other positive effects compared to steel. It boasts a tensile strength of up to 1000 MPa, comprises 70% fibers, and does not conduct radio waves. Additionally, it enjoys a higher tensile strength ranging from 600 to 1600 N/mm² and has a thermal conductivity of only 0.25%.

Fiber reinforced products have numerous advantages ranging from technical specifications to durability. We aim to make it as easy as possible for you, so here are some of the key benefits:
Compared to traditional steel counterparts, the production of fiberglass dowels and rebars releases significantly less CO2, making a positive impact on the environment.
The same fiberglass dowels and tie bars are up to 4 times lighter than conventional steel, reducing labor intensity and keeping the workforce satisfied.
Steel always reacts to water, leading to rust and eventual loss of strength. fiberglass, being non-reactive, makes corrosion simply impossible.
In addition to corrosion resistance, it is also chemically resistant. Substances like chloride and phosphates have no effect on fiberglass dowels and tie bars; they remain unaffected.
