ADFIL USA Inc. has been launched by UK-based Anglo-Danish Fibre Industries Limited (ADFIL) to meet rising demand from US companies for its patented polypropylene construction fibers.
The high-performance fibers are mixed with traditional concrete and used in both above and below ground projects to provide increased durability and fireresistant properties. ADFIL USA has opened an office in Marlton, New Jersey, and is currently looking for a network of quality distributors to supply its products throughout the United States. Once the brand is established, the company is planning to use its base in the United States to target Central and South America. ADFIL is already market leader in the UK, supplying the majority of major ready-mix concrete producers such as Tarmac, LaFarge, Aggregate Industries Hanson and RMC.
With a production plant in Varde, Denmark, ADFIL has also established itself in Europe and has seen great success over the past couple of years in the Middle and Far East.
The company is leading studies into the use of the fibers in fire-resistant construction through the Eureka initiative, a European Government-funded program to research advanced technology.
ADFIL USA’s product range includes Fibrin XT, which are extremely fine (22 microns) fibers designed to enhance the durability of concrete against abrasion, impact and freeze/thaw damage. The company has also pioneered the design of fire-resistant monofilament polypropylene fibers for use in tunnels and bridges to prevent structural explosion in the event of a fire.
