Carbon fibre strengthening, or CFRP for short, involves using materials developed from natural carbon fibre to reinforce, rehabilitate, and repair buildings, structures, or existing structural elements.
Strengthening materials made from carbon fibre are extremely thin, lightweight, and versatile, which means they can be used to support a wealth of structural strengthening and rehabilitation jobs. Carbon fibre strengthening encompasses many repair and rehabilitation tasks within a structure – including but not limited to:
- Corrosion-related repair
- Pipe rehabilitation
- Seismic retrofit (rehabilitation of a building’s connections)
- Structural preservation
