FibraShield Max is a synthetic macrofiber specifically engineered to replace welded wire fabric and #3 bars when used as a secondary reinforcement in precast concrete. Beyond reducing plastic shrinkage cracking, it imparts a significant increase in toughness, and impact-, and fatigue-resistance. It also increases green strength and provides an average residual strength of 228 psi at 5 pounds per cubic yard.
