NForce-Fiber® for Concrete & Shotcrete Applications

NForce-Fiber® is processed and treated using innovative technologies that prevent fiber degradation and increase performance in the strong alkaline conditions of cement matrices. Unlike conventional synthetic micro-fibers, NForce-Fiber® boasts a chemical bond with the concrete matrix, as well as a mechanical one. NForce-Fiber® is specially treated for concrete compatibility and is adopted for premium concrete and shotcrete applications.
