Carbon Fiber for Wall Reinforcement
Carbon fiber presents a long-term, stable repair option for bowing walls that does not involve any intensive installation process. Carbon fiber reinforcers are ideal for situations requiring a cost-efficient, durable, and minimally invasive repair. The ease of installation is part of what makes carbon fiber so much cheaper than traditional steel solutions in the long run.
Carbon fiber has incredibly high tensile strength—up to 10 times stronger than steel.
Far less intrusive than steel, carbon fiber is installed with minimal damage or disturbance to walls.
Installing carbon fiber systems is a fast and efficient process.
Carbon fiber is a cost-efficient method of wall crack reinforcement and foundation repair.
Concrete crack repair with carbon fiber is practical for both interior and exterior wall repair.
Carbon Fiber System Applications
Concrete and Steel Beams
Concrete and Steel Columns
Bowed Basement Walls
Residential Basement Walls
Carbonbond Carbon Fiber System Advantages
The Carbonbond Structural System is a patented technology that integrates the advancements made in aerospace to produce solutions for homes. The system is strong, safe, and economical.
One of the targeted uses for the Carbonbond Structural System is as a reinforcement of concrete and block basement walls. In particular, woven carbon fiber straps can prevent damage by providing 10 times the strength of steel to resist soil pressure against basement walls.
Using high strength polyurethane to fill the existing void and high tensile strength carbon fiber sheets to prevent any further movement, the Carbonbond System stops cracks in their tracks. With carbon fiber materials stronger than steel, Carbonbond bridges the forces to fix the crack.
There is no excavating or drilling, because the Carbonbond System installs easily without the need for bulky or noisy equipment. Compared to steel, carbon fiber fabric is over 10 times stronger, much thinner (only ⅒ of an inch), and 40 times lighter. Carbonbond repairs are entirely maintenance free because they will never corrode like steel. With the ease of installation, incredible strength, and durability of carbon fiber, it’s easy to see that no other choice makes sense.

Carbon Fiber Installation
A certified technician should determine whether this is truly the best option for leaning walls. You can choose to waterproof the interior of the cracks before the reinforcers are installed.
The installation itself is exceedingly simple. The cracked surface must be prepared; then the contractor installs the adhesive and firmly presses the carbon fiber against the wall. Either woven or laminate carbon fiber can be used, and the walls can be cleaned and painted following installation. If done properly, there will be no visible changes to your home apart from the cessation of the wall bowing.
Installing Carbonbond is a simple, 4-step process:
- Inject polyurethane into the crack to stop water leakage
- Prepare surface and apply primer
- Bond carbon fiber to the surface to cover the crack
- Apply a final coat of epoxy
Carbon Fiber Basement Wall Repair With Intech Anchoring
We have made it simpler than ever before to take advantage of the benefits of carbon fiber wall repair. When you purchase this system from us, we deliver it as a fully equipped wall repair kit. As you prepare for your masonry or basement repair, you can have everything you’ll need in one bucket. From the components and accessories themselves down to the plastic sheeting you’ll put out to perform the project, Intech Anchoring has you covered from top to bottom.
The carbon fiber that we supply is also bi-directional. This term means that it functions in both directions and eliminates the possibility of human error during the application process. Other products are uni-directional and only perform when applied in their specific direction. We’ve simplified your options to save time and reduce labor costs.
With Intech Anchoring, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you are supported by an industry professional who follows through on their practices. We have experts available to join you in the field and see that every product is coordinated according to your needs and the engineering specifications. You can trust that when we recommend a product, it will be geared to your unique requirements and backed by our excellent customer support.
