Hybrid fibers in high performances extruded cement composites

M Cyr, SP Shah, Alva Peled

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Extruded composites containing combinations of several fiber types, referred to as hybrid composites, were studied. Fibers with a low modulus of elasticity and poor bond with a cement matrix, such as polypropylene (PP), were combined with fibers having high strength, high elastic modulus and superior bond, such as glass or polyvinylalcohol (PVA) fibers.
