OUR APPROACH Stems deeply from our philosophy - Efficient material usage. 

Carbo-Link have a solid understanding of the in-service conditions of civil engineering projects, with aggressive exposure conditions and high stresses in structural components with anticipated lifespans of 50 - 100 years. Over the years we have gained extensive experience implementing lightweight, durable, carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) solutions either as stand-alone structural members, or in conjunction with conventional materials in the stringent civil engineering sector. 

Carbon fibre properties are a result of specific production processes - not the inherent material properties. Subsequently, the characteristics of a final product derive from  the interaction between product development and process development. We also consider the interactions between our CFRP solutions and the existing materials, together with the combined systems performance. 

Combining structural engineering principles with creative material science, Carbo-Link produce custom, cost effective structural elements that deliver on your objectives through efficient material usage and considered product / process development.

SOLID CFRP CABLES

SOLID CFRP CABLES

Carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) cured and consolidated into a shaped (round and/or profiled), solid rod featuring fully integrated termination and anchoring configurations. 

  • Bridge cables - arch, suspension, stay cables. 
  • Load increases - live loads, increased traffic volumes.
  • Repair to structural components - concrete fatigue.
  • Changes in structural system. 
BUNDLED CFRP CABLES

BUNDLED CFRP CABLES

A collection of small diameter (1mm - 5mm) pultruded carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) rods bundled together. These can be consolidated with a cover for further protection or aesthetic purposes. 

  • Bridge cables - arch, suspension, stay cables. 
  • Load increases - live loads, increased traffic volumes.
  • Repair to structural components - concrete fatigue.
  • Changes in structural system. 
CFRP STRIPS

CFRP STRIPS / LAMELLAS

Pultruded carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminate strips designed for strengthening concrete, timber and masonry structures. External reinforcement bonded to any surface.

  • Load increases - live loads, increased traffic volumeS.
  • Damage to structural components - steel corrosion, ageing.
  • Improve serviceability - stress & crack width reduction.
  • Changes in structural system. 
CFRP STRAPS

CFRP TAPES / STRAPS

Thermoset and thermoplastic CFRP unidirectional (UD) tapes. Can be wound into a continuous loop around two pins, and either laminated or non-laminated. Tapes in customs widths.

  • Flexure and shear reinforcement.
  • Non-intrusive reinforcement. 
  • Weak substrate strengthening. 
  • External post-tensioning.
