FORTA® PE-2® fiber is an easy to apply, fully oriented, 100% virgin copolymer polyethylene monofilament fibrous reinforcement.
This engineered fiber provides a mini-reinforcing system forming a more cohesive, inner-supported mix intended to reduce the formation of shrinkage cracks prior to initial set, as well as provide a rapid burn-out characteristic in the hardened mass after initial set.
FORTA® PE-2® fiber is non-corrosive and non-magnetic.
FORTA® PE-2® fiber is typically used in refractory castable concrete applications to provide early cohesiveness and green strength, and to provide uniform vapor-release/burn-out channels within the mass during firing. Requires no mix design or placement changes.
