The use of fibers to fortify building materials may seem like a new idea, but its roots can be traced back thousands of years to ancient Egypt when crude straw “fibers” were added to clay and mud building blocks and bricks. Although primitive in design, these fibers provided a structure and toughness that the Egyptian builders found very beneficial. 

Centuries later, this basic concept has been transformed and revolutionized . By combining space-age synthetic materials with unique designs and shapes, fiber products minimize cracking, improve material performance and add long-term durability in a wide variety of concrete, asphalt and other applications.
