Carbon fibre strengthening has become an increasingly common method of structural reinforcement used throughout the concrete repair industry. This is due to its ability to address the structural deficits caused by aging concrete members and external corrosive factors on existing building and bridges.
In situations where building structures require increased structural reinforcement, carbon fibre strengthening is a highly effective measure that can be used. The weaved bonding of carbon fibre material provides a greater strength to mass ratio and increased flexibility. Thus serving as far superior method of structural support compared to that of structural steel reinforcement.
Additionally, carbon fibre strengthening is a cost effective approach to structural reinforcement as it poses little disturbance to the pre-existing services of the building during instalment. As a material less subject to the implications of corrosion, carbon fibre is a durable, long-term approach to structural reinforcement.
