Nycon pioneered the use of fibers for secondary reinforcement in many products including concrete, asphalt, plastic and soils. A value added manufacturer and supplier, Nycon has a broad portfolio of reinforcing fibers, which include nylon, polypropylene, AR glass, steel, macro, high-dosage synthetic fibers, PVA and steel/synthetic blends. All our reinforcing fibers are available in handy water soluble bags or “toss-in” paper beater bags.
In the early 1980′s, Nycon developed synthetic fibers that would out-perform all other fibers in prolonging the service life of concrete. Nycon ultimately developed a three-dimensional, multi-filament nylon fiber specifically designed for reinforcing concrete and cement-based products. Field testing of the engineered Nycon fibers revealed:
- They were easier to use and place.
- They were stronger than polypropylene and did not float to the surface.
- They outperformed all synthetic fibers in high-performance concrete construction.
Since 1999 Nycon has expanded its offerings, which now include the full spectrum of synthetic and steel reinforcing fibers.
Today, there are billions of square feet of Nycon-modified concrete and asphalt in-place worldwide. Nycon fibers are increasing the durability and service life of concrete, and the company’s support services are enabling building professionals to work effectively and competitively.
With headquarters in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, Nycon markets its products worldwide. Its sales and distribution network includes 35 domestic and 20 international sales representatives. Nycon’s US distribution centers are located in Florida and Pennsylvania.
