CARBOCORE® are composite anchoring systems that allow to transfer tensile loads and improve the performance of carbon fiber fabric reinforcements.
CARBOCORE® anchoring rods must be used in combination with carbon fabrics, such as Epsilon Fabrics. For optimal results, they can also be used in combination with bonded CARBOLAM® plates.
They allow a stronger connection between strengthening elements and the old substrate, and eliminate any risk of corrosion which would normally occur when using steel connectors.
CARBOCORE® anchors are divided in 2 parts:
- A part made to be anchored into concrete with a resin filler. As this part is already cured in our factory, its installation will be greatly facilitated.
- A “whip” part, made for stratification with textile fabrics.
CARBOCORE® anchoring systems can go through any section of an element to reinforce or any adjoining element. In this case, both ends of the CARBOCORE® are made of whips and can be stratified with the composite parts they are linking.
