XL-100 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 XL-100. The addition of XL-100 at the normal recommended dosage rate (3-10 lb/cy) 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.
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.
