Different types of Fibers Used for Concrete Reinforcement

Natural Fiber Reinforced Concrete: consists of cellulose fibers that are processed from pine trees. This category is also producing good results. The recycled carpet waste has been successfully used for concrete reinforcement by using the waste carpet fibers.
Polypropylene Fiber Reinforced Concrete: Polypropylene is a cheap and abundant polymer widely used due to its resistance to forming chemical reactions.
Asbestos Fiber: These fibers are cheap and provide the cement with mechanical, chemical and thermal resistance, although the asbestos fiber reinforced concrete appears to have low impact strength.
Carbon Fibers: These fibers have been recently used due to their very high modulus of elasticity and flexural strength. Characteristics such as strength and stiffness are better than those of steel fibers, although they are more susceptible to damage
