Kratos Micro Synthetic Fiber Reinforcement is being produced according to the EN 14889-2 Class I standard and provides superior results in terms of preventing early age plastic and long-term drying shrinkage cracks. It minimizes the formation of cracks due to heat and shrinkage and improves structural integrity.
Areas of Use
Apart from its application in ready-mixed concrete and shotcrete, Kratos Micro can be used in all cement-based composite materials, including semi-dry floor screed applications, interior and exterior plaster applications, and similar applications.
As a result of accredited tests conducted at Aachen University in Germany, it has been proved that the use of 300 g/m³ dosage prevents 67% of the shrinkage cracks.
Kratos Micro Synthetic Fiber Reinforcement may be dispensed as water-soluble bags that can be dosed or supplied in big-bags, which are scaled according to project requirements.
