The digital launch meeting of 4 new Kratos Structural Reinforcement products was held online on May 31 with the participation of experts, professionals and academic speakers.

Kordsa’s Kratos Macro and Micro synthetic fiber reinforcements stand out as the first Turkish product in the over 500 million-dollar sized international fiber reinforcement market.

As the company expanded its Kratos product range in 2020, with the addition of Kratos Rebound Minimizer, a shotcrete additive that reduces rebound in tunneling and mining applications, and Kratos Pool Fiber used in pool plaster applications, became a preferred solution partner of many prestigious projects with its cost effective, durable and efficient product range.

In parallel to its “Inspired, we reinforce life” vision Kordsa has recently added to its Kratos product portfolio 4 Structural Reinforcement products after a comprehensive R&D period.  Structural Reinforcement is critical both for Turkey, and in terms of overall sustainability.
