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.
