Structural Strengthening

Sika® CarboDur® Plates

Heavy-duty CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) for Structural Strengthening System.

USE
To strengthen structures for

  • Load increase
  • Increasing the capacity of floor slabs and beams
  • Increasing the capacity of bridges to accommodate increase axle loads
  • Installation of heavier machinery
  • Stabilising vibrating structures
  • Changes of building use
  • Damage to structural elements
  • Deterioration of original construction materials
  • Steel reinforcement corrosion
  • Vehicle impact
  • Fire
  • Earthquakes
  • Service improvements
  • Reduced deflection
  • Stress reduction in steel reinforcement
  • Crack width reduction
  • Reduced fatigue
  • Change in structural system
  • Removal of walls or columns
  • Removal of slab sections for openings
  • Change of specification
  • Earthquakes
  • Changed design philosophy
  • Design or construction defects
  • Insufficient / inadequate reinforcement
  • Insufficient / inadequate structural depth

CHARACTERISTICS AND ADVANTAGES

  • Non corrosive
  • Very high strength
  • Excellent durability
  • Lightweight
  • Unlimited lengths, no joints required
  • Low overall thickness, can be coated
  • Easy transportation (rolls)
  • Simple plate intersections or crossings
  • Very easy to install, especially overhead
  • Outstanding fatigue resistance
  • Minimal preparation of plate, applicable in several layers
  • Combinations of high strength and modulus of elasticity available
  • Clean edges without exposed fibers thanks to the pultrusion process
  • Approvals from many countries worldwide

SikaWrap®-230 C/45

Woven Carbon Fiber Fabric for Structural Strengthening System.

USE
SikaWrap® -230 C/45 is used for strengthening of reinforced concrete structures, brickwork and timber in case of flexural and shear load due to:

  • Improved seismic performance of masonry walls
  • Substitute missing rebars
  • Strength and ductility of columns
  • Increasing loading capacity of structural elements
  • Changes of building utilisation
  • Structural design construction defects
  • Seismic movement
  • Improved service ability
  • Structural upgrading to comply with current standards

CHARACTERISTICS AND ADVANTAGES

  • Manufactured with weft fibers to keep the fabric stable (heat-set process)
  • Multifunctional use for every kind of strengthening requirement
  • Flexibility of surface geometry (beams, columns, chimneys, piles, walls, silos)
  • Fabric available in several widths for optimum utilisation
  • Low density for minimal additional weight
  • Economical compared to traditional techniques
