PROPERTIES OF ARAMID-FIBER REINFORCED CONCRETE AND SIFCON

Experimentation was conducted on the use of a new aramid fiber for the reinforcement of portland cement-based concrete and slurry. The study showed that synthetic fibers manufactured by cutting an epoxy-impregnated, braided bundle made of aramid filaments act similarly to steel fibers in reinforcing both portland cement-based concrete and slurry matrices. The advantage of epoxy-coated aramid over steel is in the lack of corrosion problems, and over polypropylene, in the higher performance.
