What is the anchorage for adherence?
Carbostrip tape should take not only the sector where the increase in resistance is required, until get to the supports. But "anchorage by adherence" is not synonymous with underrun.
In which cases is used the reinforcement system Adcos Carbostrip?
The reinforcement system Adcos Carbostrip is mainly used for cutting and bending stresses.
For bending stresses beam is mainly used in a heavier weight due to carbon fiber in the material, since efforts in this type of elements, typically, have higher concentrations. Can also be used in slabs and pillars for the same purpose.
For shear, is mainly used in beams, as an alternative to cutting the reinforcement Adcos Carbotex system, which is the most common in this type of backup.
However, an engineering assessment of the project should be conducted to determine the most suitable material as the case.
Can transform a reinforcement steel sheets into carbon fiber?
It is entirely feasible to convert a structural reinforcement with steel plates in structural carbon fiber reinforcement.
Unlike steel blades, structural carbon fiber reinforcement, is easy to install, does not change the dimensions of the elements and the installation is minimally invasive with the working environment allowing business continuity of our client. Moreover, the weight of the fiber does not affect other elements that may be altered by the traditional solution in steel as foundations, pillars,.
Additionally, there are fibers that are completely resistant to the action of fire and are the best choice against reinforced structural steel plates.
Is the MOP and SERVIU online solutions with carbon fiber?
Yes, our company has carried out projects of structural carbon fiber reinforcement for highway concessions and various bridges with an excellent acceptance by the Ministry of Public Works.
Is it cheaper to reinforce the carbon fiber?
Depends on the characteristics of each work, if we consider the speed, cleaning, finishing and little intervention as such the project always end up being cheaper than a traditional application is built on the structure.
What types of carbon fiber exist for structural reinforcement?
There are plenty of configurations for structural carbon fiber reinforcement, the most common are sheets, blankets unidirectional (Carbotex or Wrap), bidirectional, etc..
The use of each setting depends on the requirement of the project or element to be reinforced.
Carbostrip to reinforcing wooden structures?
Yes, it can.
How is select the tape type Carbostrip?
According to the results obtained from the structural analysis and the conditions to meet the item reinforce.
Can the Carbostrip be replaced by some other epoxy adhesive?
No. To ensure proper operation of the reinforcement, should strictly follow the technical specifications of each of the products used.
Carboship to strengthening steel structures?
Yes, it can be used. However, it is not a common practice because the natural solution in a metal reinforcing structure is increased by adding metal plates module.
It Can run some revetment over the reinforcing?
Yes You can use any mortar, paint or plaster because the final surface for these cases comes with the roughness necessary to develop the bond coat.
Is required Skilled labor for placement?
Yes, because it is extremely important to the proper placement of structural carbon fiber reinforcements and the proper dosage 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.
Does the carbon fiber can be pierced or cut once installed?
There it is very important to protect the structural reinforcement such that it can not be pierced or cut. Usually protected using mortars.
area of steel and carbon fiber?
You can not make a direct or weighted equivalence between the area of steel (amount) required in proportion to the structural carbon fiber reinforcements. Each project must be evaluated individually, because there are other variables that must be taken into account.
