Bridge Reinforcement Applications For Carbon Fiber Materials
Big projects require big solutions, and when it comes to the structural support of concrete bridge beams, piers, abutments, wing walls, and decks, you won’t find better products than the carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) and epoxies we offer at Carbon Fiber Support. Five times less dense than steel yet five times stronger, carbon fiber materials provide greater strength and require less manpower to transport and handle. They are also easier to install because there is no need for heavy equipment or machinery. Our repair kits come with all the accessories needed to apply the epoxy to clean concrete, and then affix the carbon fiber fabric onto the area you want to support and strengthen.
CFRP has gained wide acceptance in the bridge reinforcement and construction industry over the past several decades, specifically when it comes to concrete repair and ensuring concrete structures will bear the loads they are intended to withstand. Whether it’s shoring up concrete during a bridge retrofit or adding proactive strength to newly constructed concrete bridges, carbon fiber straps have become the worldwide mainstay of concrete masons for structural bridge support and reinforcement. Unlike steel, carbon fiber is not susceptible to corrosion and is impervious to extreme hot and cold temperatures, deicing compounds, and water. Our CFRP straps are flexible enough to wrap around piers and are rigid enough in panels to stop the proliferation of cracks and prevent cracked wing walls from bowing. No other material offers the same versatility or provides the same structural support as carbon fiber materials.
