The CTech-LLC® Alkali-resistant system’s mesh fabric (ARFM™) is made from E-glass woven fabric as its basis mesh, and then should be coated by alkali-resistant agent. With strong elastic modulus and fracture strength, ARFM™ mesh is the ideal material that effectively reinforces cement concrete.
- ARFM™ in alkali-resistant system has ability to resist the alkalinity of the base coats.
- Good dimensional stability, stiffness, smooth and not easy to shrinkage and deform, excellent positioning.
- Water resistance.
- Resistance to aging and attack from breakdown.
- Cable of meeting a variety of requirements..
- Low weight.
- High mechanical strength.
CTech-LLC® ARFM™ is used for several structural and non-structural interventions, among them we can include:
