Column Corrosion Protection using Fiberglass Composite Jacketing
Corrosion protection of deteriorated concrete, steel and timber columns have been accomplished with varying methods and technologies over the years. CTech-LLC® LifeShield™ is a type of composite jacketing system designed as a fast and cost reliable solution for corrosion protection and structural rehabilitation of RC, steel and timber columns without service major disruption.
The LifeShield™ system is comprised of fiberglass super-laminate which is wrapped around the column and special filler material placed in the annulus between the existing column and the interior surface of fiberglass laminate. When wrapped around the damaged column, the LifeShield™ system improves the axial capacity of column by providing seamless confinement around it.
