Structural Strengthening

Carbon fibre is an extremely efficient, light weight, cost effective and reliable technique for the structural strengthening of Concrete, Steel and Timber elements within buildings and structures. This technology is now a widely accepted, as a technique for seismic upgrading, locally trimming apertures, increased load capacity and restoration of damage/load carrying capacity, including fire damage without adding significant load. 

CarboComp is many times stronger than steel, extremely durable and combined with its light weight, is easy to apply. Offered as fabric for wrapping columns and shear strengthening of beams, and in pre-engineered laminates, which can uniquely be restrained with mechanical fixtures, allowing CarboComp to be installed quickly and efficiently with minimal manpower, simple scaffolding and no lifting equipment. 

  • CarboComp Plus

    Multidirectional Carbon Fibre Laminates

    Description

    CarboComp Plus is a unique vacuum formed epoxy carbon fibre laminate composed of both unidirectional carbon fibres and carbon fibres a ±45º direction, which can be mechanically anchored.

    Width: 50, 60, 80, 100, 120mm
    Minimum fibre content: 65% 

    Advantages

    • High tensile strength and stiffness
    • Lightweight
    • Very low creep
    • Flexible in use
    • Long lengths can be installed jointlessly
    • Excellent corrosion, acid and alkali resistance
    • High durability
    • Minimal thermal expansion
    • Requires little or no maintenance
    • Finishing with paint or plaster or other finishes demands no special preparation
    • The laminate is protected post production.  Due to this, no pre-roughening, cleaning or degreasing is necessary

    Uses

    • Reinforcing of beams, floors, walls and/or columns in concrete steel and timber construction.
    • Strengthening of bridges and buildings.
    • Repair of the original bearing capacity, eg. after fire damage or corrosion of reinforcement.
    • Local strengthening of construction elements, eg. when making holes through floors or walls.
    • To increase load bearing capacity
    • To repair construction errors.
