Whether it is normal deterioration, disintegration due to sudden impact or basic design defects, structures tend to get weak over the years. Structural Strengthening is the process of consolidating the structures to make them fit and functional.
Strengthening is the process of enhancing or restoring load carrying capacity of the existing structure. Techniques include providing conventional jacketing using steel/ concrete/micro-concrete, FRP composite systems, etc. Concrete jacketing is ideally suitable for restoring the strength and stiffness of beams, columns and beam-column junctions when the corrosion level is moderate.
High strength-to-weight ratio and exceptional weather resistance are the key reasons behind the growing demand for FRP (Fiber Reinforced Polymer) composite systems. From the restoration of historic buildings to the structural rehabilitation of dams, bridges, tunnels and piers, FRP has come a long way indeed. At Bhor Chemicals & Plastics Pvt. Ltd., we know that strengthening using FRP composite systems is the most advanced method that offers many unique advantages. We offer complete range of strengthening system, which consists of specialty products like HEXACURE® Prime, HEXACURE® Matrix, HEXACURE® Force-C, HEXACURE® Force-G, HEXACURE® Tensor, HEXACURE® Bond, etc.
Mainly strengthening is required in change in use, change in codal provisions, and in faulty construction/design and defects
