FORTA® ECONO-NET® is an easy to finish, fully oriented, 100% virgin homopolymer polypropylene fibrous reinforcement in a collated fibrillated (network) form.
FORTA® ECONO-NET® is used to reduce plastic and hardened concrete shrinkage, improve impact strength, increase fatigue resistance and concrete toughness.
This medium-duty fiber offers good-bonding power, long-term durability, and true secondary/temperature control by incorporating a fibrillated pattern and long length option.
Non-corrosive, non-magnetic, chemically inert, and 100% Alkali Proof!
Tensile Strength: 83-96 ksi. (570-660 MPa)
Length: 3/4" (19mm), 1-1/2" (38mm)
FORTA® ECONO-NET® is mainly used in concrete applications such as slab-on-grade, overlays/toppings, curbs, slope paving, driveways, sidewalks, basement floors, garage floors, architectural/colored concrete, precast, mortar, grout, water tanks, and sewage treatment facilities – anywhere that superior fiber performance is desired and where the objective is to control temperature/shrinkage cracking while improving basic durability properties. Requires No Mix Design or Placement Changes!
