Innovative Tech of the Month: AtlantisFiber
Reinforcing concrete with fiber improves overall cracking resistance, toughness, and ductility, making for more durable and safer structures. AtlantisFiber works to develop synthetic microfiber admixtures for concrete from cleaned and refined polymeric fibers sourced from repurposed tire fiber strands, making them the most environmentally sustainable product on the market!
Their concrete blend SeismicFiber was designed to withstand high seismic activity. This seismic-resistant concrete admixture allows for concrete structures, like schools, bridges, and infrastructure, to be built to withstand earthquakes. Not only does this minimize structural damage and improve overall safety, but there are also significant economic benefits of earthquake-resistant structures.
As AtlantisFiber points out, in addition to the costs associated with building collapse and business interruption, “the economic hardship can be worsened by building owners being held liable for property losses, injuries, and even death.” AtlantisFiber’s innovative earthquake-resistant technology, and its associated economic, environmental, and safety benefits, make their SeismicFiber blend October’s Innovative Tech of the Month!
