In September 2014, Solomon Colors Inc. acquired the Ultra Fiber 500 product line of concrete secondary reinforcement fibers from Georgia Pacific LLC (formerly Buckeye Technology).
For the past six years, Solomon Colors represented Ultra Fiber 500. Solomon Colors President Richard R. Solomon says that he became interested in purchasing Ultra Fiber 500 because of its superb finishing quality, unsurpassed crack control, better hydration and bonding. He calls it a true invisible fiber for decorative concrete, woth fully automated dispensing system capability.
Solomon Colors Inc. will continue the same manufacturing and packaging process for Ultra Fiber 500 and will produce, service and install the innovative Ultra Fiber 500 Automatic Dispenser System. As with the Solomon ColorFlo automated dispensing systems, Ultra Fiber 500 dispensers will be maintained by Solomon’s in-house service technicians. In addition to the current Ultra Fiber 500 shipping points, Solomon Colors will be stocking Ultra Fiber 500 at both of the company’s Springfield, Illinois, and Rialto, California, manufacturing plants. This will allow Ultra Fiber 500 to be purchased and shipped with the complete line of Solomon Colors Inc. pigments, and Brickform and Legacy branded decorative products.
