JBA Concrete Solutions Pvt Ltd brings to you the ultimate bonanza of color-blended fibers to reinforce and increase durability. After more than 25 years of steady growth, FORTA continues to be the most respected name in the synthetic fiber industry.

FORTA manufactures easy to finish, color blended fibers for a variety of construction needs in concrete applications such as:
  • Slab-on-grade
  • Overlays/toppings and tilt-up panels
  • Curbs
  • Slope paving and sidewalks
  • Driveways, roads and highways
  • Shotcrete and architectural/colored concrete
  • Sewage treatment facilities
All in all, Forta fiber is useful anywhere mere peak fiber performance is desired and where the objective is to control temperature/shrinkage cracking while improving basic durability properties. The FORTA products are an ideal replacement for industrial steel. These fiber products made from a variety of polymers offer maximum long-term durability, and true secondary/temperature control.

To help you choose the correct Forta product, FORTA CORP brings you the FORTA "4-C's" categories, which help you predict the fiber performance level for a given project. The 4-C's are - Configuration, Chemistry, Contents, and Correct length The FORTA product line offered by JBA includes the following products:
  1. FORTA FERRO ® is an easy to finish, color blended fiber, made of 100% virgin copolymer/propylene, consisting of a twisted bundle non-fibrillating monofilament and a fibrillating network fiber, yielding a high performance concrete reinforcement system. This extra heavy-duty fiber offers maximum long-term durability, structural enhancements, and effective secondary/temperature crack control by incorporating a truly unique synergistic fiber system of long length design. FORTA FERRO® is non-corrosive, non-magnetic, and 100% alkali proof! Larger parole which are joint less. - STRUCTURAL CONCRETE FIBERS

    Some of its common applications are:
    • Industrial floors
    • Bridge decks
    • Shotcrete
    • Loading docks
    • Precast products
