• Engineered Fiber

    AtlantisFiber™, in a strategic partnership with SIERA Group, has engineered an extracted blend of cleaned and refined fibers sourced from repurposed tire fiber strands. From these strands, AtlantisFiber offers two sustainable Repurposed Tire Fiber (RTF) blends that offer many benefits when used in new-build and repair scenarios.

    Raw Fiber

    An extensive amount of R & D was done using raw fiber in its original form.

    Processed Fiber

    The advantage of the processed fiber is that it allows for better performance due to higher dosage rates and improved mixing characteristics.

  • AtlantisFiber's EnviroGuard–100 Polymeric Fiber Concrete Admixture was used in the following projects, demonstrating the efficacy of RTF (Repurposed Tire Fiber) in both slab and thin-set mortar repair covering several years of exposure/data.

    Technical Set-Up & Results

    This project was measured by sensors that were embedded in the concrete. Pump-trucks and mixing characterizations were also analyzed.

  • In order to monitor the performance of the pavement, the team embedded 30 solar-powered sensors that transmit data to IC-IMPACTS researchers. These health-monitoring sensors provide 24/7 data that will enable efficient future designs and improvements in the self-healing pavement technology.

  • H. R. MacMillan Building Project

    This UBC project was for the courtyard steps analyzing thinset mortar repair. These "thin set mortar projects" capture the best scenario for the likelihood of cracking, allowing the opportunity to effectively measure the varying mix effectivenesses.

    Thinset Mortar Repair

    Our RTF admixture largely mitigates the high concentration of cracking normally associated with high-cementitious mortar repair work.

  • Our Engineered Technology

    AtlantisFiber has developed proprietary infrastructure admixtures of a repurposed & extracted blend of cleaned and refined fibers sourced from recycled vehicle tires throughout the world. From these raw inputs, we produce a Repurposed Tire Fiber (RTF) blend that offers many benefits when used in concrete repair/retrofit and new construction. Our process is exceptionally energy efficient, keeping in alignment with AtlantisFiber’s sustainability initiatives.

    Our Synthetic Micro-Fiber admixtures, EnviroGuard–100™ and EHCC SeismicFiber™, have been engineered to be used in all climates, in all types of concrete, and for all types of uses, including ■ Parking lots ■ Roadways ■ Commercial Slabs-On-Ground ■ Precast Products ■ Pools and Pool Decks ■ Sewerage & Stormwater Culverts ■ Virgin Shotcrete & Shotcrete Retrofitting ■ Tunnels & Bridges ■ Blast & Impact Resistant Structures ■ 3-D printing ■ ... and more.

    EnviroGuard-100 by AtlantisFiber™

    Our primary blend, Enviroguard–100, a Polymeric Fiber Concrete Admixture blend excels at crack control.

     

    It is an extracted blend of converted polymer fibers (CPF) sourced from repurposed tire fiber strands. Our Synthetic Micro-Fiber blend has been specifically developed to be used globally for a multitude of uses.

    SeismicFiber by AtlantisFiber™

    This is not your typical concrete admixture; in fact, it is a structural support admixture.

     

    As an engineered blend of proprietary ingredients, testing and practical application research show unmatched URM (unreinforced masonry) flexibility that can withstand sustained 9.0 seismic events.

    AtlantisFiber™ is an innovator of repurposed-fiber applications and our polymeric fiber concrete admixture is less expensive overall compared to hand-tied rebar, while still increasing the tensile strength many times. This translates into fewer project costs, less build impact, and longer overall sustainability.
