Carbon Fiber Sheets &Laminates are used to strengthen existing structural members. Similar to bonding steel plates onto a structure,Carbon Fiber Sheets & Laminates provide additional reinforcement that strengthens and stiffens existing structures. Unlike steel plates, however, Laminates are lightweight, easy to install, and will not corrode. Depending on the application, the laminate is bonded using an epoxy resin specifically suited for the installation. The result is an externally bonded reinforcement system that offers outstanding long term physical and mechanical properties.
