Carbonbond Carbon Fiber
The Intech Anchoring Carbonbond is a carbon fiber fabric used to strengthen structural elements. The fabric is composed of bi-directional carbon fibers that will be field laminated using Intech Anchoring Epoxy saturating Intech Anchoring#400.
The Carbonbond System is an ideal choice for foundation damage of two inches or less in width because they provide maximum stability repair without requiring invasive drilling or excavation in a basement. Woven fiber comes in uni-directional and bi-directional options, allowing for the resistance of movement in one direction or two directions, respectively. The type of carbon fiber for your repair will be dependent upon the severity and characteristic of the offending crack.
An added steel angle at the top of the wall effectively concludes the repair. The finished product can easily be painted over to blend in with the space and contribute to a clean, comfortable living area. This fix is permanent, as carbon fiber repairs require zero maintenance.
