Strengthening measures are required in structures when they are required to accommodate increased loads. Also, when there are changes in the use of structures, individual supports and walls may need to be removed. The pultruded CFRP laminate reinforcing consists of bonding the CFRP strip with the concrete structure using a high-strength epoxy resin as the adhesive. The CFRP strips are manufactured using a pultrusion process. The pultrusion principle is comparable with a continuous press. It provides great strength, high modulus of elasticity, and outstanding fatigue resistance It is a very lightweight non-corrosive material, that requires minimal preparation of laminates, and it's alkali resistant. It is an economic method that requires very short contract times.
