Fibers are usually used in concrete to control cracking due to plastic shrinkage and to drying shrinkage. They also reduce the permeability of concrete and thus reduce bleeding of water. Some types of fibers produce greater impact-, abrasion-, and shatter-resistance in concrete. Generally fibers do not increase the flexural strength of concrete, and so cannot replace moment-resisting or structural steel reinforcement. Indeed, some fibers actually reduce the strength of concrete.

Spot free car windows

Have you ever washed your car and let it dry in the sun? Ever notice the spots left behind on your windows and outside mirrors? Well, I have. After years of looking at "dirty" windows after washing, I have found a way to keep the spots from forming. After I wash the car, I simply take a cotton towel and slowly wipe the windows down, allowing the towel to soak up as much water as possible. Once I have finished drying the windows, I simply take a micro fiber towel and wipe the glass down. Plus, about once a month, I clean the exterior glass with Windex and wipe down with my micro fiber towel and "buff" the glass to a shine. Each time I wash my car, I no longer have to worry about "dirty" clean windows again.

Fix finn

Hard to tell, but it looks like fiber glass. You should be able to get a repair kit at an automotive or home repair store. You will need to remove the broken section and put new fiber glass on, then shape it once it sets up.

If there is a tiny oil spot on the concrete by the oil filter what could cause this

possible residue from filter change,or the filter may be lose,if you can reach it try tightening it,it should only need to be hand tight. either that or when oil was added they may have spilt a drop.but more likely to be residue from filter change as when filter is changed i normally smear some oil around the new oil filter seal.

Myvw polo keeps cutting out lots of fibres coming out off rear pipe

The fibres coming out of the tail pipe would be the glass wool coming out of a muffler which is breaking apart internally. Whether this is the reason for the engine cutting out is difficult to say. It is possible that the glass wool is restricting the exhaust to the extent that you are not getting sufficient evacuation of your burnt gasses or it is upsetting some of the sensors. Have the muffler problem attended to and see if that makes a difference to the engine operation, and then take it from there. If you find this helpful, please rate the solution.

2004 VW Bug leaking antifreeze. small puddles found every morning or after 8hr day under front passenger side of engine. Pressure tested and sealant added, no leak found by mechanic. Still leaking and...

the VW beetle has a plastic radiator, where the cap is if you look to the front of that it does a 90, it is cracked there. Here is the fun part, with a throx wrench ( I think it was a T-30) take apart the fenders and front bumper. At the auto parts store there is a plastic tank repair kit, the kit includes resign,fiber glass cloth, and a stick. You will need to rough up the crack as it is right where it angles and lay on the cloth and resign. Let it dry and it will not leak from there again. Good Luck Tim
