CSA™ spike anchor is a factory-fabricated product made from loose bundles of carbon fibers. The use of CSA™ in FRP (Fiber Reinforced Polymer) retrofitting increases the axial strain and the strength of the interface between the surface and the composite fiber (FRP), which increases the efficiency of the composite fiber (FRP).

Key Features

  • Factory-fabricated for full quality assurance.
  • Non-corrosive and can be applied to a wide variety of structural elements.
  • FRP anchors can prevent or delay the delamination of EB FRP sheets.
  • Long working time.
  • High tensile modulus and strength.
  • High mechanical and chemical resistance.
  • Ambient cure.
  • High dielectric performance and are resistant to electricity.

Applications

  • CTech-LLC® Carbon Spike Anchors can delay or even eliminate premature de-bonding failure of the FRP prior to its ultimate strength being reached.
  • CSA™ improves the efficiency, reliability and safety of EBR-FRP strengthening systems.
  • Enhancing of pre-stressed FRP strengthening system.
  • Improving force transferring of carbon and glass fabric.

Storage Conditions

Store CSA™ at 4° to 32°C. Avoid freezing the product and keep it away from direct sunlight, flame or other hazards. Avoid moisture and water contamination.

Shelf Life

Shelf life is 10 years.
