Textile concrete is an innovative composite material with great potential for the future. Reinforcement is provided by grid constructions made of alkali-resistant glass and carbon fibres. The scrim layers used, which are specially designed for reinforcing concrete, are supplied by V. FRAAS Solutions in Textile GmbH. These scrim layers have the advantage of not rusting. In this way significantly less concrete covering is required in contrast to steel-reinforcement, making possible the manufacture of thinner and lighter pre-cast elements. The use of textile reinforced concrete as opposed to steel-reinforcement offers many advantages: not only is less material used but also the weight is reduced which reduces costs and spares the environment. Also the lighter construction elements are easier to work with. Textile-reinforced concrete is not just extremely stable but is even more stable than steel reinforced concrete.
