What Is Concrete Reinforcement?
Carbon Fiber is one of the most common and widely used materials in the field of structural strengthening. What makes carbon fiber an excellent choice is the fact that it is extremely lightweight, its incredible tensile strength and it is non-corrosive as well. Other great properties of working with carbon fiber to strengthen and restore you industrial structure is that it allows your business to remain open and the production to continue. This prevents unnecessary downtime for your business and employees and won’t cost you millions of dollars. Additionally, it is an incredibly safe and efficient way to strengthen failing structures. In certain situations, fiber glass may be a suitable substitute to carbon fiber when restoring a structure or building. It is almost always applied as a wrap and less expensive than carbon fiber, but it is also not as strong. It is always best to ask your industrial contractor which method is right for your particular situation.
The Process of Concrete Reinforcement
PDC has extensive experience in strengthening your industrial or commercial structure. We have perfected the process of carbon fiber strengthening over the years. To protect your failing structure and to give it new strength that will last for decades, our team will execute carbon fiber repairs by applying a primer and a tack coat to the part of the structure that needs repair and strengthening, then we add the carbon fiber sheet and apply a resin that saturates the carbon fiber sheet. We finish the entire process with a top coat. The composition of this top coat varies as we match it to the environmental and chemical conditions of the structure in questions. Strengthening a concrete structure and restoring it with carbon fiber is a highly skilled and specialized process, which is why it is essential that you are working with the best. The PDC team has installed more than 100,000 sq ft of carbon fiber which makes us an industry leader.
