fiber in concrete vs wire mesh

For over five decades, fiber reinforcement has been a trusted ally for concrete constructions, with its usage rising rapidly as a substitute for wire mesh. With it, benefits abound such as an enhanced flexibleness, higher shock-proofing capacity, and more reliable crack-prevention.

Utilizing fiber reinforcement brings a certain suppleness to concrete that is especially critical in settings where the material is exposed to alterations in heat or wetness. This enhancement can help keep fissures from manifesting in the concrete.

Toughness is a key factor when assessing concrete’s durability, and fiber reinforcement makes the material more resistant to impact. As a result, concrete can handle harsher impacts without breaking or cracking.

By employing a web of fibers throughout the concrete, an even pressure can be applied to the whole material, helping impede vast fissures from appearing. In such a way, fiber reinforcement can provide cracking control in concrete.

For most construction purposes, wire mesh has been the go-to material for reinforcing concrete. However, in recent years, fibers have gained a lot of traction for their beneficial features. If you’re actively contemplating how to strengthen your concrete, it is highly recommended that you contemplate all the positives and negatives of both wire mesh and fibers before settling on the ideal solution for your situation.
