Kordsa, a leader in tire and construction reinforcement and composite technologies, has presented KraTos, its construction reinforcement brand, at Road2Tunnel, the third international roads, bridges and tunnels fair, which brings construction professionals together.

The trade fair was held at the Istanbul Congress Center last week, where the company displayed its innovative synthetic fibres for concrete reinforcement. KraTos range has been developed to provide long-term and high durability, as well as savings on cost, time and labour.

Visitors had the chance to be informed about KraTos Macro having non-conductive and anti-corrosive structure and KraTos Micro, concrete reinforcement fibre to prevent early-age cracking and providing smooth concrete surfaces, as well as their advantages and fields of use.

KraTos Macro and KraTos Micro are more sustainable and environmentally friendly concrete reinforcement fibres, compared to steel mesh, and are differentiated by their anti-corrosive structure providing durability and high quality, providing maximum performance thanks to their easy and homogeneous mixing properties, according to the manufacturer. KraTos is used in all kinds of infrastructure and superstructure applications, including slab-on-ground concretes, coating and screed applications, industrial floors, concrete roads, water and ports structures, track-slab concretes, airports, and precast concrete components.

“In the international fibre reinforcement market, KraTos is the first Turkish product,” says the company. “Being produced domestically, it can be supplied fast and easy, which makes KraTos preferable for many infrastructure and superstructure projects.”

“Toll booths of 3rd bridge, Samsun light rail system project, EskiÅŸehir light rail system project and Trabzon General Directorate for State Hydraulic Works pressurized water tunnel project are some of the projects that are reinforced with innovative, high-performance KraTos synthetic reinforcement fibres.”

Recently, Kordsa announced that KraTos macro synthetic fibre will be used in the construction of the Buca-Bornova Tunnel, which is the longest highway tunnel in Izmir.
