Based on the output of condition assessment and structural assessment, each problem needs to be attended with due care as follows:
Whether it is normal deterioration, disintegration due to sudden impact or basic design defects, structures tend to get weak over the years. Structural Retrofitting is the process of consolidating the structures to make them fit and functional for the present intended use.
And strengthening is the process of enhancing 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 CFRP (Fiber Reinforced Polymer composite systems). From the restoration of historic buildings to the Structural Rehabilitation of dams, bridges, tunnels and piers, CFRP has come a long way indeed. At Bhor Chemicals & Plastics Pvt. Ltd., we know that strengthening using CFRP composite systems is the most advanced method that offers many unique advantages.
Hexacure products for Structural Strengthening and Retrofitting
We offer complete range of strengthening system, which consists of specialty products like
HEXACURE® Bond, etc.
Mainly retrofitting and strengthening is required in change in use, change in codal provisions, and in faulty construction/design and defects.
