REINFORCEKiT® BEAM

COMPOSITE REPAIR SOLUTION FOR STRUCTURE REINFORCEMENT

Product Sheet

REINFORCEKiT® BEAM is a high-performance repair system to renovate any kinds of corroded structures and restore original integrity, making it even stronger than original one.

This technology is a combination of metal inserts and composite wrapping made of Kevlar® tape and bi-component epoxy resin.

Initially, REINFORCEKiT® BEAM has been co-developed in partnership with the French National Railway Company (SNCF) for railway industry to reinforce catenary supports (HEA beams) but this product is suitable for any structure designs (poles, beams, deck structures and platings …) without size limitation.

  • Stop and renovate up to 80% of corrosion
  • Restore structures integrity

APPLICATIONS

  • Any structure designs
  • Any structure sizes
  • Any weather conditions
  • Any environments
  • Any industries

BENEFITS

  • Tailor-made product for your structure design (Finite Element Analysis)
  • Long-term repair (20 years minimum)
  • Cost-effective (structure replacement avoided)
