Fib-MAT

alkali resistant glass fiber mat

Fib-MAT is an alkali resistant glass fiber mat designed for use in the reinforcement of self leveling concrete mortars. It dissolves with water and assists in incorporation in cement mortar matrix. The mat has an open construction to allow penetration of cement mortar. Fib-MAT increases the tensile and flexural strength of self-leveling concrete products allowing to be installed over plywood substrates without the diamond metal / welded wire mesh reinforcement.

Fib-Mat fibers have a high elastic modulus and tensile strength making them ideal as an effective reinforcement for cement matrices. It will not corrode and ins not affected by UV radiation, making it suitable for use with minimal cover.
