BarChip synthetic fibre concrete reinforcement is a high performance polypropylene fibre used as structural reinforcement in concrete and shotcrete.

The BarChip reinforcement system works by distributing hundreds of thousands of high tensile strength fibres throughout the entire concrete mix. They reinforce every part of the concrete structure, front to back and top to bottom, leaving no vulnerable unreinforced concrete cover.

BarChip Fibre Concrete Benefits

  • Redistributes load – increased ductility / toughness
  • Eliminates corrosion – long term durability
  • Reduces maintenance costs and rehabilitation closures
  • Eliminates set-up of steel mesh
  • Reduces development cycle times
  • Improves precast production speeds up to 50%
  • Increases abrasion and impact protection
  • 70% reduction in carbon footprint compared to steel
  • Safer and lighter to handle than steel
  • Reduced wear on concrete pumps and hoses
  • BarChip fibre is UV stabilised to resist solar deterioration
  • Weather proof packaging on multi-stack UPVC pallets
