Carbon Fiber Structural Strengthening Projects
Carbon fibre has very high tensile strength and is also very lightweight. When bonded to the exterior of a concrete column, beam, or slab, it can add significant strength without adding weight that would increase the load on foundations and other structural members. Carbon fibre plates can be used to improve, increase or repair the performance and resistance of concrete structures. Strategically placed, strengthening plates can be bonded to concrete elements to provide significant increases in carrying capacity and stiffness.
