Concrete reinforced with polypropylene fibers

Concrete reinforced with polypropylene fibers Used as secondary reinforcement, plastic fibers help reduce shrinkage and control cracking Polypropylene fibers are manufactured in small, fibrillated bundles (left). In mixing the concrete, the bundles open up and the individual fibers are sheared apart by the fine and coarse aggregate (right).
