Basalt fiber is a material made from extremely fine fibers of basalt, which is composed of the minerals plagioclase, pyroxene, and olivine. It is similar to carbonfiber and fiber glass, having better physicomechanical properties than fiberglass, but being significantly cheaper than carbon fibre.

Kevlar is a liquid that is converted into a fibre(called aramid fibres) and then woven into a textile material. The resulting textile material is extremely strong, lightweight, corrosion and heat resistant. It is often used in combination with other materials, forming composites.

Aramid fibers are a class of heat-resistant and strong synthetic fibers. They are used in aerospace and military applications,ballistic composites, in bicycle tires, and as an asbestos substitute.

Carbon fiber (also commonly called graphite) has special properties making it ideal for applications ranging from aerospace, to automobiles, to sporting goods. When combined with resin to form a composite, it produces parts that are extremely light and rigid.

AR Glass Fibers are designed specifically for use in concrete. … AR glass fiberhave high tensile strength and modulus, do not rust like steel, and are easily incorporated into concrete mixes.

S-glass – High strength glass made with magnesium aluminosilicates. Used where high strength, high stiffness, extreme temperature resistance, and corrosive resistance is needed.

The first type of glass used for fiber was soda lime glass or A-glass(“A” for the alkali it contains). It is not very resistant to alkali. A new type, E-glass, was formed; this is an alumino-borosilicate glass that is alkali-free <2%). This was the first glass formulation used for continuous filament formation.

polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide …..Polypropylene fibres are used as a concrete additive to increase strength and reduce cracking and spalling. In the areas susceptible to earthquake.

Macro-Fiber Composite (MFC) is an innovative, low-cost piezoelectric device designed for controlling vibration, noise, and deflections in composite structural beams and panels. It was created for use on helicopter blades and airplane wings as well as for the shaping of aerospace structures at NASA.

Nylon fabric became important as a synthetic substitute nylon is still used today to make parachute canopies due to its elasticity, strength, resistance to mildew, availability and price.

Plastic fiber is an inexpensive type of fiber and generally lower quality than glass optical fiber. Attenuation is generally higher with plastic fiber. The primary use of plastic fiber is in the automotive and medical industries.

The modulus of elasticity of Recron 3s is high with respect to the modulus of elas- ticity of the concrete or mortar binder. Recron 3s fibre helps in increasing flexural strength. … Sprinkle the fibre in site mixer with little water. Keep rotating and add chips, sand, cement and balance water Controls cracking, Reduces water permeability, Reduces rebound in concrete-brings direct saving and gain: Increases flexibility, Safe and easy to use.

CRIMPED STEEL FIBER are low carbon, cold drawn steel wire fibers designed to provide concrete with temperature and shrinkage crack control, enhanced flexural reinforcement, improved shear strength and increase the crack resistance of concrete.

Fiber reinforcement is increasingly used to improve the strength and ductility of concrete, which is very brittle in nature. In this research, two types of hooked fibers and one type of twisted steel fibers were used as reinforcement in beam specimens
