Brass-plated steel micro-fibres, obtained by cutting metal wire, for structural reinforcement of cement-based conglomerates in general. READYMESH MR is a very thin brass-plated steel wire with a diameter of 0.22 mm and a length of 6 or 20 mm, mainly used for reinforcing concrete and high-performance mortars. READYMESH MR are available in two different lengths: READYMESH MR-060 = 6 mm; READYMESH MR-200 = 20 mm
Diameter: 0.22 ± 5% mm

The addition of READYMESH MR improves the mechanical properties of the conglomerate in terms of ductility, mechanical performance, energy absorption, toughness, fatigue and wear resistance. They also help control the plastic shrinkage in the conglomerate (cracking) and reduce or eliminate the need for conventional reinforcements such as electro-welded meshes.
Variable according to the type of work to be carried out and/or performance to be achieved.
The READYMESH MR micro-fibres are widely used as main and unique reinforcement for low thickness structural mortars, sprayed plasters and concretes (shotcrete, spritz-beton), precast concrete products.
READYMESH MR fibres will be added to the conglomerate during mixing in a gradual manner, avoiding immediate introduction of the whole quantity of fibre required. Having introduced the READYMESH MR fibre, continue with mixing for at least another 3 minutes so that the distribution is uniform in the mixture.
