MBrace CF 160

Part of the Mbrace series


MBrace® CF 160

is a dry fabric constructed of very high strength, aerospace grade carbon fibers. These fabrics are applied onto the surface of existing structural members in buildings, bridges, and other structures using the MBrace® family of performance polymers. The result is an externally bonded FRP (fiber reinforced polymer) reinforcement system that is engineered to increase the strength and structural performance of these members. Once installed, the MBrace® System delivers externally bonded reinforcement with outstanding long-term physical and mechanical properties. MBrace® CF 160 is twice the thickness of MBrace® CF 130. Two layers of MBrace® CF 130 can be replaced with one layer of MBrace® CF 160.

WHERE TO USE

APPLICATION

  • Increase load bearing capacity of concrete
    beams, slabs, walls and columns
  • Restore structural capacity to damaged or
    deteriorated concrete structures
  • Increase the strength of concrete pipes, silos,
    tanks, chimneys and tunnels
  • Substitute reinforcing steel mistakenly omitted in the construction of concrete and masonry structures
  • Increase the seismic ductility of concrete columns
  • Increase the seismic response of concrete beam-column connections, shear walls and in-fill walls
  • Improve the blast resistance of concrete and masonry structures
  • Strengthening of some steel and timber structures
