We are pleased to introduce another interesting product for concrete construction, the alkali-resistant glass fiber MiniBars(R) from ReforceTech in Norway.
The fibers are being distributed throughout Germany and Europe through our company Construction Systems Marketing and are a useful addition to our product range.
The fibers with a length of 43 mm have been approved by the DIBt for use in non-statically loaded components, such as exterior concrete layers of sandwich elements, since September 2015. In March 2016, the approval for the static attachments followed.
The use of non-corrosive fibers enables the facing layer to be reduced to 35 – 40 mm when using grade C 30/37 concrete. Exterior layers of 15 mm using high-performance concrete are also possible.
The company Thermomass based in the USA has also developed a corresponding anchor for these small wall thicknesses, so that anchoring without thermal bridges is also possible.
If you have any questions about the use of MiniBars in your products, we will be happy to help and advise you.
