Concrete that spans a distance will be under flexural stress, in which you are depending on only a small part of your concrete to handle a significant part of your load.
Concrete that flexes more, fails less.
At NYCON we offer XL-100, AR-DM, RECS15, and SF Type I.These fibers are proven to distribute a flexural load throughout the whole of the concrete by creating a matrix of added tensile strength.

Flexural Strength Products
RECS15 by Nycon are 8 denier, ductile mono-filament PVA fibers (Polyvinyl Alcohol) for use in creating fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC). The primary benefits of RECS15 are an increase in the flexibility and toughness of concrete. These fibers lend their 5700 ksi (40 GPa) of flexural strength to your concrete allowing it to bend where normal concrete would break. RECS15 is coated to aid in dispersion and increase strain hardening. These PVA fibers bond on a molecular level (hydrogen bonding) within concrete, creating a multi-dimensional network of tensile (240 ksi (1600 MPa) ) and flexural strength.
AR-DM by Nycon are mono-filament alkali resistant glass fibers for use in creating fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC). This product is made for Dry Mix applications which generally have small volume placement and/or limited vehicular access.
XL-100 by Nycon are high-tensile macro mono-filament Polypropylene fibers for use in creating fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC). The primary benefits of XL-100 are shrinkage crack and thermal crack control as well as increased tensile and flexural strength enough to replace welded wire mesh.
SF Type-I N
SF Type-I N “Needles” fiber products by Nycon are 0.2 mm diameter x 13mm mono-filament steel fibers for use in creating fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC). These fibers are designed for use in concrete products as a primary reinforcement. SF-Type-I Needles are coated with copper to resist corrosion.
Available in bulk quantities only.
