Coatings and specialty chemicals firm Sika (Baar, Switzerland) recently announced its entry into the market for high-performance concrete reinfocing fibers, producing the material at its Troisdorf, Germany, facility. 


Swiss coatings company Sika recently announced that it has started producing high-performance concrete reinforcing fibers at its manufacturing facility in Troisdorf, Germany.

A new product line, made of polypropylene, is used to increase the structural strength of concrete in highly demanding applications, the company says.

Serving EMEA

Aimed for its clients in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, the line is allowing Sika to expand its range of concrete additives, the company notes.

“With our latest innovation, synthetic macro fibers, we want to offer customers new technologies in the area of structural reinforcement,” said Sika CEO Paul Schuler.

“We are carrying out a targeted investment in the build-up of production in the EMEA region, and are confident that these high-performance products have significant growth potential.”

Typical areas of use for the fibers include tunneling, mining, precast concrete elements and industrial floors, as well as foundations and ground slabs.
