Post Tensioned CFRP Plates System for Strengthening of Structures
In cases where a concrete structure in need of addressing concerns with strengthening due to deterioration, overloading, construction defects, or simply change of purpose, CTech-LLC® TensaPlate™ System is an ideal, engineered solution.
The CTech-LLC® TensaPlate™ system is based on the concept of non-bonded external post-tensioning and stress-relieving,providing active reinforcement by placing the concrete structure under compression in those regions where load causes tensile stress.
TensaPlate™ External PT system consists of CFRP plates as post-tensioned elements due to the high tensile strength and resistance to corrosion and the anchorages needed at both ends of structural element. After the tendons (CFRP plates) installation, the tendons stretch as they are tensioned with a jack and locked into place using an anchoring component, introducing compressive stress on the structural member, which offsets the tensile stress the concrete member might face under loading.
CTech-LLC® TensaPlate™ External PT system has a well-earned reputation for its quality, reliability, and durabilityand issuitable for repair and strengthening works of buildings, bridges, tanks and special structures.
