TDP’s fibres for concrete and screed flooring and plaster and render are cut to size to meet the demands of each application unlike alternative materials available where just one size is offered.
TDP’s Concrete and Screed Fibres are available in 20mm lengths while the company’s Plaster and Render Fibres are cut into 2.2mm lengths.
Rob Barlow, managing director of TDP commented, “The majority of fibres available on the market are offered in one length of 12mm for both applications which does not always meet the needs of the specific job. We feel that ‘One Size Fits All’ is not always the best way to address building work. In fact, it is our company philosophy to provide the best product for each job, and the results certainly speak for themselves as we have an excellent customer retention record.”
Fibre technology in concrete and screeding has been used extensively throughout the civil and construction industry for many years, but TDP Fibres is also the first range which is suitable for both large and smaller projects. The major benefit is that these fibres minimise shrinking which in turn reduces cracking, thus significantly reducing the need for remedial work and cutting costs on site. Using TDP Fibres achieves a high quality finish with an impressive surface hardness, improving resistance to wear and tear.
Non-irritant and easy to use, TDP Fibres are made up of high tensile strength polypropylene fibres, and can be added easily into the mix and disperse quickly and evenly.
TDP Concrete and Screed Fibres are available on 100g and 900g bags and can be used in a wide range of applications including industrial and domestic flooring, concrete paths and driveways, foundation bases, conservatory and garage floors, underfloor heating installations, extensions and floor repairs.
Render is particularly susceptible to weathering, and any cracks which occur during the drying process can be penetrated by moisture, leading to significant problems at a later stage. Adding TDP’s Plaster and Render Fibres can minimise this shrinkage, again reducing the requirement for repair work after the plaster or render has cured, making the job more efficient and cost-effective.
Available in 200g bags, TDP Plaster and Render Fibres are suitable for use in rendering, undercoat and one coat plasters and are ideal for renders and lime-based plasters which are particularly susceptible to cracking.
Rob Barlow added, “TDP Fibres have proved to be a major advantage to builders. Remedial work means extra costs to the job and significant time lost, both of which any builder with a heavy schedule is keen to avoid. The handy-sized 100g and 200g bags are also an advantage as builders can easily pick up supplies when required.”
The products are available from builders’ merchants nationwide.
