STRUX® patented macro synthetic fibers
STRUX® macro-synthetic fibers are high performing proprietary engineered copolymer fibers used as a replacement for steel fibers and wire mesh reinforcement in underground shotcrete construction. STRUX® is added to shotcrete to provide toughness, impact, and fatigue properties. In addition to its superior crack control and resistance, STRUX® also eliminates corrosion issues or safety concerns associated with the use of steel fibers.
STRUX® BT50 advantages:
- Faster and safer construction
- Lightweight reinforcement
- Superior crack control
- Enhanced durability
