Kordsa, a global player of tire, construction reinforcement and composites technologies, presented KraTos, its innovative synthetic fibre which is highly preferred by infrastructure, superstructure and mining projects, at the Global Concrete Summit. Organised online for the first time, the summit discussed the future of concrete and concrete structures.

The Global Concrete Summit was organised by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) and Grey Matters.

Kordsa was the gold sponsor of the summit that provided learning and networking opportunities on the latest innovations, technical knowledge, continuing research, tools and solutions for sustainable concrete design, construction and manufacturing. Kordsa shared its innovative concrete reinforcement technologies - KraTos Macro, KraTos Micro, KraTos Rebound Minimiser and KraTos Pool Fibre. At the virtual conference Kordsa also made a Product Spotlight Presentation focusing on the key features of KraTos products as well as its areas of applications of the KraTos portfolio.

Introduced to the market in 2014, KraTos, the innovative concrete reinforcement materials of Kordsa, made a difference in the industry with high durability, time efficiency and advantageous workmanship costs and now are highly preferred by many prestigious projects.

Featuring high durability, homogeneous mixing and quick applicability, KraTos Macro is used in a variety of construction applications from industrial flooring to screed, from high-performance under-rail concrete to port's slab on ground concrete, from shotcrete to tunnel lining and precast concrete elements.

KraTos Micro, another Kordsa product presented at the Summit, is a high-performance polymer-based monofilament micro synthetic fibre reinforcement that provides effective crack control against short-term plastic shrinkage and long-term drying shrinkage with its 3-dimensional homogeneous distribution property in concrete. It is also used in all cement-based composite materials, including semi-dry floor screed applications, interior and exterior plaster applications, construction chemicals manufacturing, repair mortars and similar technical mortar applications.

Kordsa also introduced KraTos Rebound Minimiser, its new reinforcement fibre recently developed for shotcrete applications which minimises rebound up to 3 times by decreasing segregation and by filling spaces between cement and aggregates.

KraTos Pool Fibre, manufactured from a special polymer raw material, is specifically developed for pool plastering applications providing ultra-high shrinkage crack minimisation performance.

KraTos product range enables low carbon emissions, offering more durable and practical reinforcement solutions for both infrastructure and superstructure projects in the construction industry.
