BarChip fibre reinforced concrete is corrosion free, high performance and safe to install

The Barchip system is an inexpensive, easy to use and non corrosive concrete reinforcement system delivering a more effective and safer concrete application.


Barchip has a simple vision – revolutionise the world of concrete reinforcement.

For over 100 years we’ve just accepted that the best way to reinforce concrete is with steel. That might have been true in 1920, but is it still true today? Let’s look at the facts.

We believe there’s a better way. We believe in high performance, easy to use, non corrosive concrete reinforcement. We believe in BarChip.


  • It’s expensive.
  • It suffers from corrosion.
  • It’s difficult to install.
  • It’s time consuming and labour intensive.


  • It’s inexpensive.
  • It doesn’t corrode.
  • It’s quick and easy to use.
  • It’s safe to install.

In addition to being the cheapest concrete reinforcement solution, using Barchip’s synthetic fiber reinforced concrete and synthetic fiber reinforced shotcrete eliminates costly and time-consuming processes associated with steel rebar or mesh concrete reinforcement.

Barchip’s fiber concrete is pre-mixed at the batch plant and delivered to site with your concrete, eliminating transport, storage and placement of steel reinforcement. By switching to our fiber reinforced concrete and eliminating steel set-up processes, our clients;

  • Reduce material costs
  • Increase daily completion rates
  • Reduce labour costs
  • Reduce material handling and transport costs
  • Increase precast production speeds
  • Reduce equipment maintenance

Our synthetic fiber concrete reinforcement will never, ever, suffer from corrosion, one of the main factors affecting the durability of steel reinforced concrete.

In contrast, Barchip’s high quality polypropylene macro synthetic fiber reinforced concrete will not suffer the effects of corrosion and will maintain performance regardless of exposure conditions.

Our concrete fiber is not affected by concrete’s alkali environment and will not suffer late age strength loss (embrittlement).

  • Reduce material costs
  • Increase daily completion rates
  • Reduce labour costs

Do you have problems with rusting steel reinforcement? Our macro synthetic fiber reinforced concrete and fiber reinforced shotcrete solutions will solve that!

Barchip’s multidimensional fiber concrete system distributes hundreds of thousands of high tensile strength fibers throughout the entire concrete mix. With our synthetic fiber reinforced concrete system there is no unreinforced zone and no need for a protective concrete cover.

We provide concrete reinforcement at the exact point it’s needed, reducing the onset of micro cracking, preventing crack propagation and minimising crack widths. The performance benefits of our synthetic fiber reinforced concrete and synthetic fiber reinforced shotcrete systems include;

  • Increased concrete toughness (ductility)
  • Increased seismic performance
  • No performance loss with age
  • Reduced crack widths
  • Minimised crack propagation
  • Increased impact resistance

Barchip’s synthetic fiber concrete reinforcement delivers a 70% reduction in carbon footprint compared with steel fiber and steel rebar reinforcement.

Our environmental impact assessment shows that by using our fiber concrete and fiber shotcrete you will minimise your environmental impact using proven concrete reinforcement technologies.
