solidian Grid glass
Fiberglass mats - Reinforcement for a variety of (special) applications
solidian Grid glass
In addition to our carbon reinforcement, our fiberglass mats soldian Grid glass, which is also manufactured with innovative cutting-edge technology, stand out. The up to 2 times greater characteristic tensile strength compared to steel reinforcement mats, the much lighter weight and the material behavior (glass fiber reinforcement does not rust) are only three of several positive properties, some of which lead to significant cost savings in future new buildings, maintenance and refurbishment. The other properties, such as the non-existent electrical conductivity, make soldian grid glass indispensable for special requirements and applications.
properties & advantages
solidian GRID glass, as part of the textile concrete, combines many advantages over conventional construction with reinforced concrete. The most remarkable feature of glass fiber reinforcement is that the composite material does not corrode – this leads to many advantages for the future!
Besides the non-corrosive nature of the material, the higher characteristic tensile strength (up to 2 times higher), super lightweight, flat structure, easy machinability, non-existent electrical conductivity and very low thermal conductivity compared to structural steel mats.
From this follows many advantages, such as the design of thinner components, which allow slim construction with an aesthetic design. This results in lower raw material usage and economical transportation to the construction site. Or think of thinner façade components that mean larger usable areas in buildings with the same external dimensions.The durability of the composite material also means much lower maintenance and refurbishment costs (material, effort, cost from loss of service), thus lower financial provisions for future restoration measures The longer service life of the buildings/components therefore leads to lower total cost of ownership.
Or think of special requirements where charging of reinforcement or magnetic reinforcement must be excluded. This is where soldian Grid glass scores with its material properties. And these are just a few examples!
All advantages at a glance:
- lower concrete cover than conventional
- thinner components, enabling slim construction with an aesthetic design
- smaller component dimensions and thus lower transport and storage costs
- space-saving transport of the reinforcement mats as well as the concreted components
- gain of saleable/rentable area
- less consumption of concrete and therefore less use of water, sand and cement
- less emission of CO2 due to the reduction of cement use and thus climate and environment friendly behavior
- safer and healthier handling during processing due to lower weight
- less interference with operation as a result of maintenance and repair work
- no electromagnetic induction due to steel reinforcement (glass fiber mats are neither electrically conductive nor magnetizable)

Plane and lightweight reinforcements such as solidian Grid carbon can be used everywhere in the construction industry. Advantages over steel reinforcement are played out where there are requirements for freedom from corrosion. For example, solidian Grid carbon also helps reduce concrete cover for the thinner components and components exposed to aggressive media. Think of precast facades, rainscreen cladding or even the floor slab of a garage: solidian Grid carbon is both an economical alternative for new construction projects and an excellent reinforcement measure for refurbishment applications.
- precast elements in general, e.g. balcony slabs
- facades, e.g. exposed concrete facades, sandwich walls, rainscreen claddings
- hydraulic structures, maritime structures, swimming pools
- tunnel structures and linings
- bridge superstructures
- infrastructure, e.g. sewage channels, impact barriers
- structural strengthening measures, e.g. earthquake strengthening, floor slabs
- concrete components (e.g. foundations) for components for the generation, transmission and end use of electricity
- maintenance and refurbishment measures, such as parking garage refurbishment, bridge refurbishment, floor slabs
