NYCON-PVA RECS15 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 NYCON-PVA. The addition of NYCON-PVA at the normal or high 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.
RECS15 by Nycon are 8 denier, ductile mono-filament fibers 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.
