UltraTech Concrete Fibrecon

Concrete is a heterogeneous material having constituent materials of different density. The constituent materials tend to segregate out. Separation of water from the mix is termed as bleeding. As per the ambient conditions, the evaporation of water takes place from the surface of the concrete. Whenever the rate of evaporation is more than the rate of bleeding, volume change takes place on the surface of the concrete resulting in minor surface cracks. This phenomenon is known as plastic shrinkage. This can be taken care of by addition of fibres in the concrete and / or by proper placement control.
