SikaFiber® Novocon® XR steel fibers are designed specifically for the reinforcement of concrete. SikaFiber® Novocon® XR is a low carbon, cold drawn continuously deformed steel wire fiber, to provide optimum anchorage within the concrete . Previously SikaFiber Force XR and Novocon XR.
- Provides uniform multi-directional concrete reinforcement
- Increases crack resistance, ductility, energy absorption or toughness of concrete
- Improves impact resistance, fatigue endurance and shear strength of concrete
- Provides increased ultimate load-bearing capacity
- Requires less labor to incorporate into concrete than conventional reinforcement
- Offers economical concrete reinforcement solutions with greater project scheduling accuracy
- Ideally suited for pumping or sprayed concrete
- Leads to uniform thickness of shotcrete applications and no voids that can occure behind wire mesh.
- Easy to use
