Fortitex™ was developed for the concrete repair industry for applications such as:
- Seismic protection of existing none re-inforced beams and columns.
- Repairs to structures damaged by impact or fire.
- Improvements in load bearing capacity of structural members.
- Restoring the structural integrity of buildings.
We had the fabric tested by a team at Northumbria University here in the UK and they undertook testing in accordance with BS 12390-5:2000, Testing Hardened Concrete – Part 5. The results showed that applying Fortitex™ in accordance with the correct installation process, increased the flexural strength of the concrete by 4-5 times.
Fortitex™ is a uni-directional Carbon Fibre fabric that comes in 300mm rolls and in weights of 215g/sqm, 300g/sqm and 600g/sqm.
