Bidirectional carbon fiber grid, for strengthening and renovating building structures.
The technology of external strengthening using carbon grids allows to solve a whole range of problems associated with the loss of the structural bearing capacity, thereby not only restoring existing deficiencies, but also increasing the load-bearing capacity in the shortest possible time and with significantly lower labor cost in comparison with traditional strengthening methods. The system increases periods between renovations, as well as significantly increase the life-time of all structural elements.
Improvement of load-bearing capacity of plain concrete, reinforced concrete, brickwork structures and wood structures
Strengthening structures operating in wet conditions, like underground structures, tanks, tunnels, pipelines, collectors, bearing facade elements of buildings, etc.
Increasing of rigidity during seismic retrofit of columns, beams, floor slabs of the interface of structural elements, bridge structures
Strengthening of radial technical structures such as chimneys, silos, tanks, water towers, etc
Simplicity of application and of quality control
Universality of application, allowing its application on different surfaces of different shapes
Lightweight and insignificant thickness, strengthening system does not create an additional load on the construction
Strong resistance to vibration strain and dynamic stress
Resistance to corrosion
High permeability allows Xwrap Grid to be used inside concrete
No need for additional fire retardation in case of using mineral binder
Ability to perform repairs without interrupting the operation of buildings or structures
No extra cost of further expolitation

Carbon fiber grid can be used both for exterior and interior reinforcement. The base surface for application of carbon fiber grid must be prepared. Remove all plaster, coats, paints from the areas to be reinforced. Degrease the areas. The surface must be solid. Repair all damaged areas. Prior to application, clean the base surface with an industrial vacuum cleaner and moisten it with water until dull wet without any drips and drops. In case of grid application with mineral binder, mix powder with water in a clean receptacle. Use a flat stripping knife to apply 3–6 mm thick layer of repair composition. Embed carbon fiber grid in the applied layer before it sets. Apply at least 3 mm thick top layer to cover the grid completely.
