ARG Chop Strand 1/2" 1Lb bag (240131)
Alkali Resistant (AR) Chopped Glass Fibers are high integrity strands that are designed to resist breaking down during mixing and processing so that the fibers stay as a bundle of filaments. These fibers are particularly suitable for Premix and other mortar and concrete reinforcement applications. Suitable for use with the Winterstone Castiing medium. Length: 1/2 in. Unit Size: 1 Lb bag

The properties of AR-glass fibers result in a stronger concrete mix with a longer service life because of their:

  • 100 filaments per strand
  • High modulus of elasticity
  • High tensile strength
  • Superior fiber-matrix bonding capabilities:
  • Mixing minerals with minerals results in total fiber incorporation in the mass without segregation.
  • Similar density to concrete
  • Non-combustibility up to 2200˚F(1204˚C) and corrosion-resistance
  • Workability at high dosages and superior performance at low dosages

    With a filament diameter of 14 microns, AR-glass fibers pose no health hazards, since fibers with diameters greater than 3 microns cannot be inhaled. A further safety feature is that AR glass fibers always break with the same cross section without any reduction in diameter.
