Reinforcement leader Kordsa participated in 4th edition of International Road, Bridges and Tunnels fair, Road2Tunnel which was held recently in Ankara, Turkey. Kordsa informed construction industry professionals about key features and application methods of its innovative concrete reinforcement synthetic fibres KraTos PP & KraTos Micro, and their references.

Synthetic fibre reinforcements, which are preferred especially in industrial and infrastructure projects, provide quick applicability, unique time advantage, high durability and concrete reinforcement safety, while reducing maintenance costs during the service life of the projects.

Kordsa, providing information on its diverse product range for infrastructure and superstructure projects, their technical features and applications, had the opportunity to share with the visitors its innovative and 100 per cent domestic engineering solutions at this major industry meeting, bringing together administrators, subcontractors and designers. The polypropylene monafilament fibre reinforcements, a new type of KraTos, produced in the more advanced polypropylene monofilament fibre reinforcement line commissioned in Izmit in June 2018, attracted great attention.

KraTos, providing long-term safety and high durability in areas where electromagnetic equipment are involved, is highly preferred in infrastructure projects due to its use in lower dosage and cost advantage along with its 100 per cent corrosion resistance thanks to its polymer structure and used in the construction of mega projects such as toll-gates of the third bridge on Bosphorus, Samsun Light Rail Transit System Project (Samsun Tram), Eskisehir Light Rail Transit System Project, Trabzon DSI pressured water-conveyance tunnel, Buca-Bornova Tunnel, the longest highway tunnel in Izmir, TCDD second generation high-speed railway network, Artvin Yusufeli dam and Kocaeli light rail Transit System Project.

With its high characteristic performance and durability, Kratos reduces maintenance costs during the service life of the buildings. Being the first Turkish product in the international synthetic fibre market, Kratos is highly preferred in domestic projects due to its short lead-time.

Kordsa is the global player of tire, construction reinforcement and composites technologies market. As the worldwide leader of the tire reinforcement technologies market, it carries out production through a vast area from US to Asia Pacific and supplies its reinforcement technologies to the whole world. With its business processes all based on R&D and innovation, Kordsa has 786 patent applications world-wide.
