Low Cost, Environmentally Friendly Concrete Reinforcement

By its very nature capital infrastructure works are expensive, and maintenance is becoming more expensive. In the United States alone the estimated cost to repair corroded infrastructure is $300 billion annually. There is a better way.

EPC’s synthetic fiber concrete reinforcement can reduce construction times, reduce labour and material costs and significantly decrease ongoing maintenance costs. Reinforce your concrete with a material that delivers higher concrete ductility, eliminates time consuming steel processes, lowers your environmental impact, and most importantly will never suffer from corrosion. Reinforce with EPC’s synthetic fiber concrete reinforcement.

Since the early 1990’s, fiber reinforced shotcrete has been rapidly adopted as the primary ground control in underground mining operations, so much so that today it’s used in nearly every major mining operation around the world.

Why do miners love it so much? EPC’s synthetic fiber reinforcement provides the most ductile concrete on the planet. We’ve proven our products perform at 5mm, 40mm, even 100mm deflections. When you’re deep underground this is the performance you need to stay safe.

Increase Site Safety

The ability of EPC’s synthetic fiber reinforced shotcrete to help control and prevent rock falls and rock bursts is one of the single greatest contributors to mine safety in the past 30 years.

Since the introduction of sprayed concrete the incidents of injury or worse as a result of rock fall have dramatically reduced.

Cheaper, Faster, Mine Development

Fiber reinforced shotcrete is widely recognised as the most effective means of rock support due to its speed of delivery, economy, safety and durability.

EPC’s synthetic fiber reinforced shotcrete has been shown to reduce ground support costs by 11.8% with production speeds 7.5 times faster than with other types of ground support.

Unmatched Toughness

EPC’s synthetic fiber shotcrete reinforcement is unmatched in usability and service performance. Our fibers continue to deliver the highest concrete ductility results on the market.

In the past 10 years EPC has increased our fiber performance by 220% and reduced dose rates nearly 70%. For you this means lower costs, less time and above all higher performance.

Rust Free – Long Lasting Shotcrete

EPC’s macro synthetic fiber concrete reinforcement will never rust. EPC’s synthetic fiber maintains 99.8% of its performance after exposure testing, compared with only 54% for steel alternative.

Accelerated testing shows that EPC’s macro synthetic fibers are not affected by concrete’s alkali environment. Furthermore, tests show EPC’s fibers are not affected by UV exposure or embrittlement of concrete. Durable, long lasting, low maintenance concrete.
