When can enable 100% loads to a reinforcement?
After 24 hrs. of the entire project completed structural reinforcement.
What mean the concept of estructural deflection?
Deformation is produced by a bending stress.
How is the capacity of the carbon fiber reinforcement?
Is evaluated by a test in which measures whether the adhesion of concrete, is good to indicate if can be reinforced with carbon fiber.
How much can increase the load on an element?
It depends on the conditions of the elements, the project structural carbon fiber reinforcement provides a complete solution to the needs of our client.
A complete solution of structural reinforcements may include external post-tensioning design or adding additional beams.
can you use the structural reinforcement of wood or steel?
Both fabrics can be used on concrete (reinforced or prestressed), masonry / masonry common brick and wood. The use of structures of iron or steel shall be rejected until it results from laboratory tests and field are received.
Do you need assess the quality of the concrete to reinforce it?
Yes, so that the structural reinforcement develops its full capacity is required adherence is complete, in the concrete of low quality such adhesion can not be achieved.
In many cases there is the concrete degraded by the action of elements which can not be reinforced with carbon fiber.
Is possible to reinforce masonry?
Yes, but only a structural carbon fiber reinforcement for places of public interest or cultural heritage is justified.
Is it possible to reinforce elements of prestressed concrete?
Yes, you can strengthen post-tensioned and prestressed elements such as beams and slabs, our company has great experience in this type of projects with well-documented cases of success.
The structural carbon fiber reinforcement can increase the loads, the serviceability or recover heavy use of degradate elements.
Is it possible to reinforcement of data rooms and dust free environments?
Yes, we have scarifying machines with dust containment so that we can work in environments that require free of dust as data rooms, clinics, food factories, pharmaceutical factories and others.
What certification deliver in a draft structural reinforcement?
The solution of structural reinforcement engineering level is designed by our professionals and validated by the customer's engineering department.
Once the work certificates that validate the correct implementation of structural carbon fiber reinforcements are delivered.
What kind or reforce can use in structures?
All reinforced concrete elements can be king pin with carbon fiber, whether beams, columns, walls and slabs.
What documentation is delivered in a reinforcement project?
Once the work completed, our company deliver a certificate which described the work performed, the certificate application, the certificate of certified applicators, photos and certificates of each of the products used.
In addition the company also provides planning and calculation memory with reinforcements placed.
Is it possible reinforce slabs with high vehicular traffic?
Yes, we have developed several applications for cases of slabs where truck traffic is high, because the fiber must be protected but in turn must maintain all necessary to develop full capacity characteristics.
make reinforcements in places with high corrosion?
Yes, carbon fiber is an inert material that is not affected in highly corrosive environments or where percolated liquid. The carbon fiber reinforced structural solution is widely used in the case of swimming pools, where the piping and steel corrosion is very high.
