Milled Fiber

ARG Fiber

ARG Fiber contains 17% of zirconia, and has both acid resistance and alkaline resistance at high levels. It is mainly used as reinforcement for Glassfiber Reinforced Concrete (GRC) and Calcium Silicate products. It is also used as crack control material for normal concrete and cement mortar. For more than 40 years, it has been widely applied in construction and civil engineering fields.

Milled Fiber

Milled fiber is made by cutting ARG fiber shortly into the length of dozens to several hundreds μm. Its high alkali and heat resistance is used as viscosity modifier for special paint.
