Retrofitting with textile reinforcement is a good investment for the renovation and repair of steel-reinforced concrete structures and increases building values in the long term. The long service life of solidian products makes both subsequently reinforcing structures with non-corroding textile products and replacing steel-reinforced concrete with them quite economically effective.
The lighter weight and easier handling of textile reinforcements greatly reduces the staffing and material costs involved with renovation – the result is a safe and lasting solution. This is of particular benefit to traffic- and road-related construction: The high stresses placed on structures like bridges and tunnels as well as the associated follow-up costs make solidian products especially attractive to public sector clients: Significant cost savings result not only due to the durability of a strengthening layer of textile-reinforced concrete but also from the elimination of additional protective systems like surface protection covers.
Textile-reinforced concrete offers the building repair market a wide variety of applications, such as
- Car park decks (restoration of compression zones, tensile zones)
- Bridge decks
- Historic buildings (monument preservation)
- Hydraulic structures
- Strengthening of load-bearing structures
- Balcony renovation
- Pool renovation
- Waterproof concrete
- Ceiling reinforcement
- Tunnel renovation
