Increased Performance

EPC’s macro synthetic fibres increase the post-crack flexural capacity of concrete. The system works by distributing tens of thousands of fibres throughout the entire concrete mix. This 3 dimensional reinforcement;

Increases ductility
Minimises crack width
Minimises crack propagation

Increased Durability

EPC’s synthetic fibre reinforcement is tough as steel and will never rust. EPC’s fibres are made from super high strength engineered polypropylene which is unaffected by concrete’s alkali environment. This material;

Eliminates corrosion
Eliminates concrete cancer
Provides long term durability
Retains performance with age
Ensures the lowest possible maintenance costs

Reduced Costs

EPC’s macro synthetic fibre reinforcement eliminates the need to store, transport and install traditional steel reinforcement and delivers substantial cost benefits to any concrete project. Achieved results include;

Almost 50% increase in precast production speeds
50% increase in daily m2 floor completion rate
33% reduction in labour costs
80% reduction in material handling and transport costs
60% reduction in equipment maintenance
70% reduction in carbon footprint
