Meet Fibre Technologies and Ess Emm Chemicals at Stall no. D9 at the Concrete Show in Mumbai India 4th – 6th May 2017
Hall 6 Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre, Goregaon, Mumbai.
Our associate company, Power-Sprays, together with the GRCA, will once again be promoting Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC / GFRC) at this year’s Middle East Concrete, at the Big 5 Show in Dubai from 23rd – 26th November.
Middle East Concrete is the largest event for the concrete industry, showcasing four days of innovative concrete products and technical seminars.
The GRCA are taking a booth in the Saeed Halls – stand no. MEC G97. If you will be there please visit.

Power-Sprays & Fibre Technologies International recently supported their Distributor for India, Ess Emm Chemicals on their stand at the Big 5 Construct India Exhibition. The exhibition was held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai 10th to 12th September 2015.
Present were :
Varun Mittal, Managing Director, Ess Emm Chemicals
Richard Lavery of Power-Sprays/Fibre Technologies International
Hideo Teraura of Nippon Electric Glass (manufacturers of alkali-resistant glass fibres)
Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) has revolutionised the way both precast and in-situ concrete is placed:
Find out more about our superplasticiser for self compacting GRC, Flowaid SCC.
Significant improvements in flexural and tensile strength are achieved with reduced permeability and improved frost resistance.
The recommended fibres (dosage rates of 10 to 20kg per m3 of concrete) for this application are:
The fibres can be added directly to the mixer or can be pre-blended with the dry ingredients.
Where additional localized reinforcement is required then a 5x5mm Alkali Resistant Net (AR Net FT) is recommended.
These filaments help to control early age plastic shrinkage cracking which in turn can lead to an improved surface finish and enhanced impact resistance.
The recommended fibres (dosage rates of 600 to 1000g per m3 of concrete) for this application are:
The fibre also controls restrained drying shrinkage and when improvements to the long term properties of the concrete are required the fibres also act as a reinforcement.
The recommended fibres (dosage rates of 2 to 5kg per m3 of concrete) for this application are:
made with OPC has a high alkalinity which attacks ordinary E glass fibres (as used with polyester resins GRP). The higher the zirconia content the higher the resistance. NEG AR Glass fibre contains a minimum of 19% zirconia.
