Inaugurated in December 2017, Kordsa’s new production line of polypropylene monofilament fibre reinforcement, which is based at the company’s Ä°zmit plant in Turkey, has become operational this month. With this new investment in construction reinforcement technologies, Kordsa increases its production capacity and expands its product range.

In June 2018, Kordsa commenced the production of polypropylene monofilament fibre for the construction industry, a new type of KraTos, which is an innovative concrete reinforcement synthetic fibre, in the new polypropylene monofilament fibre reinforcement line at its Izmit plant.

Kordsa has been supplying the construction market since 2014 with its innovative macro and micro synthetic fibre reinforcement products that are designed to provide ease-of-use, quick applicability, reduced labour cost, increased equipment and energy efficiency, high concrete toughness, long-durability and low carbon emissions for concrete reinforcement applications in construction projects. Kordsa differentiates its new product in terms of cost advantage by using effective dosage, as well as providing sustainability and high performance, especially in infrastructure projects.

“We are expanding our product range with this investment in construction reinforcement technologies. With this new polypropylene monofilament fibre reinforcement line, we aim to grow by differentiating from our competitors in the market,” commented Kordsa CEO Ali Çalışkan.

“We aim to offer this new synthetic fibre, a new version of KraTos, both in Turkey and in the European market. KraTos has revolutionised concrete construction projects with its ease-of-use in concrete reinforcement applications, quick application, high concrete toughness and low carbon emissions. This new version is also an innovative product that will shape the industry. As Kordsa, we are working to make our living spaces more durable and more environmentally friendly. We are touching every aspect of life with our mission of reinforcing life. Our goal is to create a sustainable future.”
