Basic Properties of Polypropylene Fibers
PP fibers have several unique properties that make them especially suited for use in concrete. They are chemically inert and stable in the alkaline environment of concrete, with a relatively high melting point and low-cost. They do not absorb water due to a hydrophobic surface which prevents
any chemical adhesion with the concrete matrix, are non-corrosive and compatible with all types of cements and admixtures. They do not affect concrete mix selection, pumpability, placing, setting time or finishing characteristics.
