Concrete Structural Repair
Though concrete is one of the most popular choices when it comes to building materials, it simply isn’t perfect. It does, however, become close to perfect when combined with a product such as Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) lamination. The use of CFRP for concrete structural repair is accompanied by an impressive list of benefits. These benefits range anywhere from increasing the load capacity that a building can sustain to correcting design and construction errors from the concrete’s initial design. Carbon fiber reinforcement for concrete is simply able to bring any structure to the peak of its ability and performance.
When using carbon fiber reinforcement on a concrete structure, CFRP must be bonded to the surface in an orderly fashion following its structural stress and structural characteristics. This improves the ultimate ability and strength of any load-bearing structure that CFRP is applied to, as it makes use of CFRP’s characteristics to improve its resistance against change of any kind. We believe that safety is of the utmost importance at Carbon Fiber Solutions. Repairing as well as reinforcing and strengthening concrete structures is a major source of passion for our company and reflects the many versatile functions of carbon fiber. We aim to change the world by making it safer and stronger for everyone.
The concrete that comprises a building is truly the backbone for the prosperity of the structure. If this fundamental aspect of the building is not properly taken care of, the structural integrity and longevity of the building will both shorten and suffer. Mending concrete structures with CFRP will ensure that the lifespan of the property will increase to its maximum potential. Not only this, but an added benefit of using carbon fiber reinforcement for concrete structural repair is that you will have more time to focus on other projects and can optimize your productivity instead of having to continually repair similar concrete damage.
