Multimesh by Nycon can be added directly to the mixing system during or after the batching of the ingredients and mixed at high speed for a minimum of five minutes. Additional mixing does not adversely affect the distribution or overall performance of Multimesh. The addition of Multimesh at the normal recommended dosage rate does not require any mix design or application changes. A water reducer or super-plasticizer is recommended in concrete products where improved workability and finishability are desired.
Multimesh by Nycon are 8 denier, mono-filament nylon fibers for use in creating fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC). The primary benefits of Multimesh are controlling plastic shrinkage,thermal, and craze cracking in concrete.
