Contec Fiber AG, based in Switzerland, is a synthetic fiber supplier with a long history in developing and manufacturing different kinds of micro- and macrofibres 

We collaborated with Empa to develop our highly effective bicomponent macrofibre Concrix as an alternative to steel fibres. Extensive tests prove its excellent working capacity according to the EFNARC guideline: over 1,000 J with only 4.5 kg of Concrix/m3 at 25 mm of deformation (depending on the concrete mix); the prevention of creep in the bond (demonstrated in a long-term test > 3,000 days); resistance to aggressive liquids (de-icing salt, sulphate). 

Other advantages of Concrix are its low rebound and consequently lower fibre and concrete consumption, along with virtually no wear on hoses and nozzles.

The Engineering team of Contec Fiber AG offers not only excellent assistance to consultants, clients and applicators in their planning and evaluation of modern and economical reinforcement solutions, but also offers advice on use and application of the products if required.

CONCRIX has completed the process of a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to show its ecological benefits. A low carbon footprint of CONCRIX helps planners and customers to reduce the total environmental impact of concrete structures in comparison to traditional steel-reinforced proposals.
