Polypropylene Fiber Reinforced Concrete : An Overview

First, the fibers do not exhibit any shrinkage, thus reducing overall shrinkage of the mix. In addition the fibers have a role in retaining the water in the concrete mix upto a certain limit which helps to delay the shrinkage. Therefore addition of fibers to the concrete mixes is always advantageous in reducing shrinkage deformation.
