Effect of the Chemical Treated Kevlar Fiber on the Behaviors of Cement Mortars
This work aims to evaluate the effect of Kevlar fibers with chemical treatment on the flexural strength, compressive strength and impact resistance of cement mortar. The experimental results exhibit that Kevlar fiber with a larger percentage can increase the flexural strength and improve the impact resistance of cement mortar, and the reinforcement effect of Kevlar fiber with chemical treatment is more obvious. The surface morphology of Kevlar fiber and the fracture surface of cement mortar reinforced with Kevlar fiber were observed by SEM, and the reinforcement mechanism of the Kevlar fiber on cement mortar was discussed.
