COMPOSITE SOLUTION FOR STRUCTURAL REPAIR
REINFORCEKiT® STRUCTURE is a tailor-made composite repair system to renovate any kind of corroded structure and restore original integrity, making it even stronger than the original one.
Depending on the structure design to be reinforced, the solution will be wrapping or patching. This technology is a combination of fiber tape (Kevlar®, carbon or glass fiber) and bi-component epoxy resin. Sometimes metal inserts can be added to specific designs to distribute the efforts. This product is resistant to any climatic conditions and temperature variations. A protective version, made of a combination of several high-performance coatings, is also available to prevent corrosion issues.
REINFORCEKiT® STRUCTURE Design
The design is performed using Finite Element Simulation.
Focus on railway sector
Specific solutions were co-developed and are commonly used bt the French National Railway Company to reinforce their catenary supports.
Since 2010, thousands of structures have been protected and repaired successfully thanks to DKiT® and REINFORCEKiT® BEAM patented products.
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.
It is suitable for any structure designs (poles, beams, deck structures and platings … ) without size limitation.
This technology is a combination of metal inserts and composite wrapping made of Kevlar® tape and bicomponent epoxy resin.
REINFORCEKiT® BEAM is a patented concept co-developed in partnership with SNCF (French National Railway Company) initially designed to reinforce catenary supports in Railway industry.
