Every developed region of the world has a common concern – aging or damaged infrastructure. The same roads, buildings, bridges and piping that helped build that region’s economy could be responsible for its decline if the infrastructure isn’t repaired and maintained properly. Businesses, too, must maintain their infrastructure or face operational slowdowns or even shutdowns. And historical buildings can be lost forever. Carbon fiber materials provide a cost-effective answer.
Lightweight yet strong, corrosion-resistant and thermally compatible, they can be applied over existing structures to significantly extend their lifetime while maintaining their design integrity. DowAksa CarbonWrap® technology is a cost-effective and innovative solution for restoring the world’s infrastructure.
CarbonWrap® Structural Strengthening Systems can be used in concrete, masonry, steel, and wood structures to increase their strength and ductility, and to make the structures last longer at a fraction of the cost and time of conventional materials and techniques.
