Concrete and masonry structures need reinforcement for various reasons such as problems and executive errors, changes in operating conditions, changes in standards and regulations, increasing the structure’s life, increasing the floors, etc.
One of the leading methods with quality, fast and light reinforcement of concrete structures (reinforcement, reinforcement of beams, shear walls, columns, slabs, etc.) uses FRP fibers. The FRP fiber reinforcement system combines carbon or glass fibers with different weights and tensile strengths and epoxy adhesive (bonding layer of concrete and FRP fibers based on epoxy). In the reinforcement and reinforcement system with FRP fibers, by applying glue and fibers on the concrete member wall, creating a structure with tensile strength, leading to the improvement of bearing properties and flexural strength of the member, is determined.
Today, due to its unique characteristics such as low weight, high speed, thickness, and low space occupation, relatively low cost, the FRP fiber reinforcement system has been very popular among professionals.
As a leading company in the field of repair, reconstruction, and strengthening of concrete structures, our resin flooring company has succeeded in producing advanced FRP resin or adhesive based on epoxy resin with the research of its experts in an advanced laboratory.

Method of application
Due to the importance of the mixing ratio of the components and its effect on the quality of the product, mix the two components B and A together and mix for 1 minute with a suitable mixer.
1- Using scissors or a knife, cut the fibrous sheets to the desired size.
2- Spread the mixed gel on the prepared surface with the help of a spatula or brush.
3- Place the cut fibers in the desired direction on the jelly surface. Using a plastic roller, gently press on the fibers to remove the glue from the taro fabric. The final surface of the carbide should be smooth and even.
4- If the next layer of fibers is installed, this operation should be done for 45 minutes (at a temperature of 25 ° C) after the first application. If this is not possible, apply the second layer up to 12 hours after the first application.
5- Apply the final layer in the amount of 0.5 kg per square meter as a protective layer on open surfaces.
Keep this product away from sunlight and prevent the storage temperature from rising. In tropical areas, it is necessary to install air conditioners. If the above conditions are observed, the useful life of the product is up to twelve months. Failure to follow the correct storage method will damage the product or its container. For information on storage method, please consult with the technical department of our resin flooring company.
