Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP)
Durable and reliable repair and strengthening solutions to restore safety and structural integrity.
Only available in North America.
In situations where conventional strengthening systems such as external post-tensioning, section enlargement, or general repairs will not provide the necessary support, carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) systems can often be the solution.
CFRP is used to add or restore capacity to a structure or member. In civil applications for bridge structures, this can include AASHTO girders, columns, and pier caps. Additionally, there are a range of commercial applications, including reinforcement for high-rise buildings, seismic protection for parking structures, and increased loading capacity for other buildings.
CFRP provides a state-of-the-art option for reinforcing structures through advanced composite materials. The material offers unparalleled strength and support, enabling structures to withstand even the most compromised conditions. Its high tensile strength and stiffness mean that it can provide superior reinforcement without the added weight and bulk of other systems. CFRP's lightweight and easy-to-work-with properties make it a prime choice for complex or hard-to-reach structures.
