GCP Applied Technologies Renames Microfiber Portfolio Under the Sinta Brand
GCP Applied Technologies Inc. (NYSE: GCP), formerly Grace Construction Products, announced today that its line of synthetic microfiber products, previously sold under the names Grace Fibers, Grace
Microfibers, Grace Microfiber FDS and Gilco Fibers, will now be marketed under the new brand Sinta.
“We are excited to unveil the new microfiber portfolio brand name – Sinta,” said Pung Chan, Global Director of Marketing at GCP. “Although the name on the packaging will change, the proven and trusted product performance of our microfiber product line will remain the same. GCP will continue to uphold the high quality and service that concrete
producers and contractors have relied upon for many years.”
The newly named product line includes Sinta F (fibrillated), Sinta M (monofilament)and Sinta FDS (fluid delivery system) synthetic microfibers for concrete.
The Sinta FDS innovative fluid dispensing system delivers the microfibers efficiently at the batching plant, allowing for automated dispensing of fibers into the concrete. The result is an accurate and recordable dosage of fibers delivered efficiently and safely. The
product offers improved productivity, while maintaining the high quality and performance of the microfibers.
GCP’s Sinta microfibers are used in applications where designers, contractors, or producers want to minimize cracking due to the rapid surface drying of plastic concrete. It is a proven and cost effective solution for the control of plastic shrinkage. The use of Sinta microfibers in the mix protects concrete from stresses that cause cracking, thus improving the overall quality and durability of concrete. Sinta microfibers are used in many applications such as slabs on grade, pavements, overlays, sloped walls, pools, shotcrete, stucco, tunnels, precast, and prestressed products. The new Sinta branded product names will begin to roll out in August 2017 with a transitional period of a few months.
GCP has been the leader in synthetic fiber technologies for decades, offering a comprehensive portfolio of micro- and macro synthetic fibers. Contractors and engineers have relied on GCP’s market-leading STRUX macrofibers to provide quality thermal and shrinkage control on their most demanding projects. The patented STRUX products are specifically engineered to have excellent dispersion, placability and
finishing properties. STRUX macrofibers also provide superior post-crack performance on a broad range of applications.
