In what sense is placed the fiber?
No. The tissue is placed in the direction of the tensile stress. It is important to remember that they are unidirectional fabrics. The fiber direction must be parallel to the direction of the tensile stress).
There other Carbotex tissues that are manufactured in two directions.
Is required skilled labor for placement?
If, because it is extremely important the proper placement of structural carbon fiber reinforcements and the dosing place of epoxies.
It is therefore necessary that the personnel performing structural reinforcement is certified in placing each of the products. This certification is delivered by each of the suppliers of the materials related to the solution of structural reinforcement with carbon fiber.
"special" treatment to the concrete before the fiber?
For the structural carbon fiber reinforcement is able to develop full capacity should ensure adherence to concrete, for this should be performed if the concrete scarifying is in good condition or a repair before proceeding with the impregnation of fiber reinforcements.
Furthermore the concrete surface should be as evenly as possible, usually in slabs with formwork or shuttering wood should match the surface to be reinforced.
Our staff makes a visit to the authorities work starting work structural reinforcement to determine what type of treatment requires concrete.
Is it possible to recover strains with the use of carbon fiber?
Yes, it is possible to reduce the deformations of beams and slabs using carbon fiber structural reinforcement project.
How many layers can be placed of Carbotex?
Generally maximum Carbotex layers for structural carbon fiber reinforcement layers not exceeding 5, this due to the contribution of the following layers starts to be almost negligible.
How many types of carbon fiber fabrics exist on the market?
Several types of carbon fiber blanket format, being the best known: the Adcos Carbotex or Sika Wrap 300 format.
The main difference between the different types of existing carbon fiber on the market is given by the weight of the fiber, ie, the amount of carbon fiber present in the material per unit area.
Moreover, there are fabrics, unidirectional carbon fiber, which is most common on the market, and also bidirectional tissues.
Exist fireproof treatment to the Carbotex fibers?
Yes, there are various solutions to protect the carbon fiber of the fire, can used retardant mortars or paints, and in extreme cases, can be used anti palmettes or ceramic fire plates.
What is the temperature for the use of carbon fiber?
It is recommended between 40 ° C and 60 ° C.
There are protections that protect fireproof material to a higher temperature.
