KraTos Macro and KraTos Micro are more sustainable and environmentally friendly concrete reinforcement fibers 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. KraTos is widely 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 fiber reinforcement market, KraTos is the first Turkish product. Being produced domestically, it can be supplied fast and easy, which makes KraTos preferrable for many infrastructure and superstructure projects.
Toll booths of 3rd bridge, Samsun light rail system project, Eskişehir 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 performanced KraTos synthetic reinforcement fibers. Recently, Kordsa announced that KraTos macro synthetic fiber will be used in the construction of the Buca-Bornova Tunnel, which is the longest highway tunnel in Izmir.
