Why Add Nycon to Your Shotcrete?
Eliminate Welded Wire Mesh and the Problems that Come with It.
- Less Labor and Hazards – Not needing welded wire mesh means not needing additional labor to “hang” it. This can be a potentially hazardous step when using wire mesh.
- Shorter Application Time – Less rebound due to the elimination of the mesh and better compaction afforded by the fibers results in quicker placement of the shotcrete. This allows you to shoot thicker layers per pass rapidly decreasing the time and material requirements.
- Simpler Logistics – Wire mesh deliveries, storage, placement and labor to hang, are all eliminated, meaning less time coordinating.
- Reduced material requirements – Wire mesh is only so flexible, requiring that some surfaces be spanned and then filled with additional shotcrete. Shotcrete reinforced with Nycon fibers conforms to the shape of your surface, meaning you’ll no longer need to use more than necessary to finish a job.

SF Type-V by Nycon are drawn, continuously deformed steel fibers for use in creating fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) and shotcrete. This fiber product can replace welded wire mesh and is our most economical steel fiber solution.
SF-B fibers by Nycon are Type V steel fibers pre-blended with Multimesh synthetic fibers for use in creating fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC). Nycon SF-B fibers provide a superior, high performance concrete that is more resistant to cracking and impact and abrasion damage.
