MAC Matrix

Macro Synthetic Fibers

Like the placement of steel reinforcement, macro synthetic fibers can be placed in concrete to transfer post-crack stress, reduce crack widths, increase impact/abrasion resistance and generally improve the long-term performance of the slabs and walls. Macro synthetic fibers eliminates the need for welded-wire mesh (WWM) and small diameter reinforcing bars used as secondary reinforcement, depending on the application. 

Hard-Trowel Finish?
  • Industrial and warehouse floors
  • Commercial and residential exterior and interior slabs-on-ground
  • Composite metal decks
  • Pavements and bridge decks
  • Topping/overlays
  • Used in Latitude – Cemstone’s Extended Joint Spacing System
  • Replaces shrinkage and temperature (secondary) reinforcement
  • Reduces construction time and overall labor and material costs
  • Increases flexural toughness, impact and shatter resistance
  • Reduced crack width

Benefits include:

  • Faster construction times through reduced labor
  • Lower construction costs 
  • Safer project site
  • Reduced plastic shrinkage cracks
  • Elimination conventional reinforcing bars used for temperature and shrinkage reinforcement
  • Increase in toughness, abrasion and impact resistance

Tips for Finishing MAC Matrix Fiber-Reinforced Concrete – Best For Broom Finish*

  • Keep the broom head at a 45-degree angle.
  • Broom with a single pass in one direction as it creates a more uniform appearance and will result in less fibers being pulled from the surface.
  • Periodically clean broom bristles over time to reduce fiber build up which can cause surface irregularities
