Fibre-reinforced concrete to reduce deterioration

With concrete in common use within reclycling plants, it can be subject to deterioration due to the harsh environment. Using fibre-reinforced concrete can eliminate some of the major issues related to steel reinforcement.

Leachates from domestic waste can penetrate concrete and accelerate the corrosion of any steel reinforcement. With the expansion caused by the corrosion of the steel, the concrete surface will eventually crack and spall, and get worse if the blades of the waste handling equipment snag on it.

our solution

  • Using Adfil Durus macro and micro fibres can eliminate some of the problems associated with the use of steel-reinforced concrete.

Durus Macro fibres

  • May eliminate the requirement for welded steel mesh.
  • Are unresponsive to acids, liquieds and leachates.
