PULTRUDED CARBON FIBRE PLATES AND WRAP FOR STRUCTURAL STRENGTHENING

Jun 29, 2022 | Blog, Carbon Fibre Floor Strengthening, Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer, Carbon Fibre Reinforced Strengthening, Post

Sika® CarboDur® S plates and wrap are pultruded carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminates, designed for strengthening concrete and are bonded onto the structure as externally bonded reinforcement using epoxy resin-based adhesive.

USES FOR CARBON FIBRE PLATES AND WRAP

Increasing Load Carrying Capacity of concrete floor slabs, beams, columns etc for installation of heavier machinery, to stabilise concrete structures, for changes in building use exceeding design limitations.

Remediation of structural elements due to deterioration of the original construction materials or corrosion of steel reinforcement.

Improvement of serviceability and durability to reduce deflection and crack widths or for stress reduction in the steel reinforcement.

Improved fatigue resistance due to changes of the structural system by removal of walls and/or columns or removal of floor and wall sections to create access/openings/penetrations for new services.

Increased resistance to earthquakes, impact or explosion etc.

Repair design or construction defects such as where there is inadequate reinforcement or structural depth.

Note: Refer Sika Product Data Sheet Sika® CarboDur® S February 2022, Version 05.04 020206010010000040.

TYPICAL PROJECT SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED BY FCS CONCRETE REPAIRS

Project:

Concord Repatriation General Hospital

Description:

Concrete Column and Slab Strengthening using Sika® CarboDur® Plates or SikaWrap and Sika® CarboDur® BC Rod 10c.

Requirements:

Apply externally bonded Sika® CarboDur® Plates or Wrap to strengthen columns and slab surface to increase the load capacity of the structure.

Solution:

Sika® CarboDur® S plates and SikaWrap 300C were used by FCS Concrete Repairs in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications and the Engineer’s directions to strengthen concrete elements in the building structure.

Sika® CarboDur® S may only be used by experienced professionals.

Outcome:

The Hospital structure was successfully strengthened to the needs of the client and the design of the Engineer.

FCS Concrete Repairs recommend Sika® CarboDur® Carbon Fibre Plates and Wrap as they are non-corroding, very high strength, durable and fatigue resistant, no joints required, and lightweight.

FCS Concrete Repairs advise that Sika® CarboDur® Carbon Fibre Plates and Wrap are cost effective and avoid the need for costly full replacement of under-strength or weakened concrete elements such as suspended floor slabs, beams and columns.
