Kordsa shows KraTos synthetic fibres at Road2Tunnel fair
Kordsa presented KraTos synthetic fibres for concrete reinforcement, at the third International Roads, Bridges and Tunnels Fair (Road2Tunnel), at the Istanbul Congress Centre, Turkey, from October 3-6, 2018. The event shows engineering products in the fields of design, concrete, floors, and foundations, and huge drilling machines and lifting equipment.
KraTos provides long-term and high durability as well as savings on cost, time, and labour. Visitors had the chance to be informed about KraTos Macro having non-conductive and anti-corrosive structure and KraTos Micro, concrete reinforcement fibre to prevent early-age cracking and providing smooth concrete surfaces, as well as their advantages and fields of use, according to Kordsa.
KraTos Macro and KraTos Micro are more sustainable and environmentally friendly concrete reinforcement fibres compared to steel mesh, and are differentiated by their anti-corrosive structure providing durability and high quality, providing maximum performance thanks to their easy and homogeneous mixing properties. KraTos is widely used in all kinds of infrastructure and superstructure applications including slab-on-ground concretes, coating and screed applications, industrial floors, concrete roads, water and ports structures, track-slab concretes, airports, and precast concrete components.
In the international fibre reinforcement market, KraTos is the first Turkish product. Being produced domestically, it can be supplied fast and easy, which makes KraTos preferable for many infrastructure and superstructure projects.
Toll booths of 3rd bridge, Samsun light rail system project, Eskisehir light rail system project, and Trabzon General Directorate for State Hydraulic Works pressurised water tunnel project are some of the projects that are reinforced with innovative, high performanced KraTos synthetic reinforcement fibres. Recently, Kordsa announced that KraTos macro synthetic fibre will be used in the construction of the Buca-Bornova Tunnel, which is the longest highway tunnel in Izmir. (GK)
