Corrosion & Erosion

Fibrwrap Systems can be used for the rehabilitation of eroded, corroded or distressed members. The system is installed in severely aggressive environments; to give it protection from erosion, prevent loss of strength due to corrosion and to extend the life of the structure. This is achieved using FRP in conjunction with our specialist marine coating.

The systems are able to regain the original capacity of corrosion-damaged structures, as well as increasing their original capacity for change-of-use retrofit projects.

CCUK can also solve issues with the corrosive nature of marine environments, which can destroy the aesthetics of a structure, hinder its serviceability, or render it useless. Retrofitting reinforced concrete and wood structures can rehabilitate and preserve existing structural elements

Fibrwrap enhances the structural capacity of existing structural elements which require additional strengthening, rehabilitation, and repair, including seismic retrofit, pipe rehabilitation, structural preservation, corrosion related repair and rehabilitation, additional loading, and environmental protection.

Fibrwrap Systems are primarily used as externally bonded or near surface mounted additions to existing structural elements such as columns, beams, slabs, walls, pipes/ tanks/ chimneys and structural connections.

Fire Protection Services

CCUK is a leading specialist fire protection contractor providing, specialist coatings passive fire protection systems and life safety solutions throughout the UK and Europe.

We specialise in supplying fire protection to carbon fibre strengthening, concrete and structural steel. We apply a variance of coatings, cement based systems, boarded fire protection systems and intumescent paint systems.

CCUK are certified installers of Fibrwrap Systems which includes the only UL approved fire protection systems for Carbon Fibre Strengthening

We also carry out fire stopping and penetration sealing; penetration-sealing systems are a fundamental requirement of the fire safety design in buildings. CCUK offer solutions, including; Fire Barriers, Fire Compounds and Intumescent Sealants

Fire Statement

It is well recognised that composite strengthening systems do not behave very well in a fire condition, the fact that any epoxy resin will soften as its meets high temperatures means that there is a high risk of your system de-bonding. Whether your Fibrwrap strengthening system actually requires fire protection (from a structural perspective) will be calculated by our competent design teams, there is a good chance it’s not applicable.

However should your carbon fibre require a fire protection system (structurally or to meet building authority approvals) then Fibrwrap has two very specialist coatings for both internal and external applications, we can meet both a 2 and 4 hour fire protection requirement. These systems are fully tested as part of the Tyfo Systems and are approved by the Underwriters Laboratory, UL.

Dynamic Structural Health Monitoring

Composites Construction UK Ltd carries out Structural health monitoring (SHM). SHM refers to the process of implementing a damage detection and characterisation strategy for engineering structures. Here damage is defined as changes to the material and/or geometric properties of a structural system, including changes to the boundary conditions and system connectivity, which adversely affect the system’s performance. The SHM process involves the observation of a system over time using periodically sampled dynamic response measurements from an array of sensors, the extraction of damage-sensitive features from these measurements, and the statistical analysis of these features to determine the current state of system health.
