Monofilament fibres

Monofilament Fibres: Crackstop M

The Adfil micro synthetic concrete reinforcement portfolio includes a range of high performance monofilament polypropylene fibres. These serve as an alternative to crack control mesh. As such, the fibres enhance the surface properties and durability of cementitious products, significantly reducing the occurrence of plastic shrinkage and plastic settlement cracking.


The fibres are extremely fine single filaments and comprise of blended lengths that are not easily seen on the hardened surface.


  • Increased abrasion properties
  • Enhanced impact resistance
  • Improved freeze/thaw resistance
  • Substantial reduction of plastic shrinkage cracks
  • Less plastic settlement
  • Reduced bleeding
  • Lowered water and chemical permeability
  • Reduced explosive spalling in fire


  • Improves safety on site
  • Requires only very limited storage space
  • Easy to use - low chance of misplacement
  • Offers great design freedom
  • Environmentally friendly thanks to a substantial reduction in carbon emission
  • No corrosion as with steel reinforcement
  • High alkali, acid and salt resistance
