C-Grid is a high-performance reinforcement produced by Chomarat, made by bonding ultra high-strength carbon tow with epoxy resin. It enables precast constructions to be thinner, lighter, more durable and less costly overall than conventional precast and other building systems.
“For architectural cladding or insulated wall panels, precast concrete is improved by integrating ultra-strong, non-corrosive C-Grid into the wall panel during fabrication,” explains John Leatham, sales and marketing director for Chomarat North America. “Taking the place of steel reinforcement, C-Grid provides better factory-made precast concrete elements.”
Thin walls including this materials can be:
•Lighter and stronger, because non-corrosive carbon fibres require less protective concrete.
•Durable, since C-Grid offers outstanding crack control.
•Attractive and versatile, with limitless design options.
C-Grid will be presented for the first time at the Big 5 Building and Construction Show which takes place in Dubai from November 23-26, at the stand of Chomarat’s partner and exclusive distributor B&R Building Materials. This show is the largest platform for the construction community to share, source and learn about solutions for the concrete industry.
