This is an advanced new material to improve seismic and load-bearing capacity, and at the same time has a higher tensile strength than steel, has been used to repair and reinforce concrete structures since the 1990s. In recent times Japan is prone to earthquakes, and is largely carbon fiber.
– High strength steel reinforcement with tensile strength 10 times higher than steel
Reinforcement in less quantity than steel
Light weight: density is 1/5 of steel
– Not damaged by external factors such as water, bases, acids or ultraviolet rays
– Easy to apply in small areas due to completely manual application
– Outstanding construction ease

Surface repair & cleaning
Remove all areas contaminated by debris, grease by grinding and repair cracks or damaged parts by epoxy resin injection (Grinding angle to radius R = 30mm).
Appropriate ambient temperature is from 10ºC to 35ºC.
Construction of the lining
Apply the primer primer several times to the place where the concrete surface will adhere to the carbon fiber.
(Standard amount of primer: 0.3kg / m2)
Curved surface control
Use epoxy putty on areas depth greater than 1mm.
Construction of surface plastic layer (first layer)
After the primer dries, roll or cover with a plastic coating to create adhesion (standard quantity: 0.5kg / m2)
Attach the carbon fiber plate
Attach the carbon fiber sheet to the concrete structure and rub the surface repeatedly with a rubber roller or table in the direction of the fiber. Make sure that there are no airbags inside the fiber sheet.
Applying the surface plastic layer (second layer)
Cover the surface of the fiberboard with plastic and allow the plastic to penetrate the fiber sheet by rubbing it repeatedly in the direction of the fiber (standard amount of plastic: 0.3 kg / m2). In the case of adding more sheets of yarn, repeat steps 4,5,6.
It takes 1 week for epoxy resin to fully harden at 20ºC and 2 weeks at 10ºC.
Surface finishing with paint.
