The fiberglass rods are used for reinforcing concrete and masonry structures. . They are immune to corrosion which always exists in steel armors caused by the presence of moisture and oxygen. In some cases this process is accentuated by external environmental factors as the chloride ions are triggering the process. This characteristic makes them especially suitable for those projects outlined in marine environments.

Dielectric properties makes them ideal for use where the reinforcement present in the concrete can cause interference such as concrete pavement slabs trams.

Some examples of applications

•  Reinforcements for bridges subjected to corrosive environments.

•  Protection of electrolysis cells.

•  Structures in marine environments.

•  Boards of hospitals with MRI.

•  Restoration of balconies.

•  Airport buildings that interfere with instruments.

•  Slabs of urban tramways.

The concrete reinforcement bars are made with 60% fiberglass filaments contained in a matrix of isophthalic polyester resin or vinyl ester. The pultrusion manufacturing process is modified so as to obtain a textured surface to ensure adhesion to the concrete.

 

Bars pultrusión polymer reinforced with carbon fiber (CFRP Rebar) refuerzo the structural bars. They designed it for them refuerzo structures of concrete, masonry and wood and often used the technique with the facility near the surface. Las bars in this case are inserted in grooves cut into them the surface and in combination with an epoxy resin. Las bars Also carbon fiber are used as original refuerzo of concrete structures.

These bars are manufactured with a patented process that uses aerospace grade carbon fiber and polymer matrix, allowing a system composed with extraordinary mechanical properties, with optional use of high modulus fibers and different surface configurations capable of ensuring a high bar grip / concrete.

MAIN APPLICATIONS

•Increase the weight capacity of masonry and concrete structures.

• Increased capacity in bending of beams and concrete slabs.

• Increased resistance to bending and shear walls of concrete and masonry.

• Improving the capacity of concrete silos and tunnel linings.

• Recovering the structural capacity of deteriorated structures.

• Replacement of corroded steel bars.

• Replacement of tendons postension.

• Correct design and building errors.

• Replace missing rebar, or replacement of larger diameter rods in steel structural elements with high-density armor.

• Seismic adequacy.

• Anchor fiberboard external reinforcement system with unidirectional or bidirectional.

MAIN ADVANTAGES

• High strength and stiffness. Smaller diameters are required, facilitating the heavily armed concrete elements.

• Lightweight, 1 / 5 the weight of steel.

• Great durability, does not corrode.

• Installation in a short period of time.

•When installed in the required elements together in smaller diameters it can be more easily hidden.

• Semi-conductor of heat and electricity.
