C-GRID carbon grids will be presented for the first time at the Big 5 Building and Construction Show in Dubai, UAE, at the booth of its partner and exclusive distributor B&R Building Materials (stand number MEC H147).
According to Chomarat, C-GRID is a high-performance reinforcement made by bonding ultra high strength carbon tow with epoxy resin enables precast constructions to be thinner, lighter, more durable and less costly overall than conventional precast and other building systems.
It explains that C-GRID carbon fibre grid offers a unique solution for the concrete builder, “For architectural cladding or insulated wall panels, precast concrete is improved by integrating ultra-strong, non-corrosive C-GRID into the wall panel during fabrication. Taking the place of steel reinforcement, C-GRID is a real enabling technology, providing better factory-made precast concrete elements” explains John Leatham, Chomarat North America, Sales and Marketing Director.
Chomarat explains that over 30 million ft² of C-GRID reinforced precast has been installed since 2003.

The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has partnered with Composites Australia to provide Australian civil and composite engineers with access to the latest knowledge on an innovative reinforcing solution to the costly corrosion of concrete infrastructure.
Composite products, based on polyurethane technologies from global chemical company Huntsman, are taking centre stage at a design exhibition at the Design Museum Gent, Belgium.
The Brazilian composite sector expects to close 2018 with a turnover of US$ 685 million, a high of 3.8% compared to the previous year.
