For structural foundation repairs, carbon fiber is incredibly effective. It repairs cracked and bowed walls without preventing further damage to the foundation.
Because of how strong it is (more than 10x mild steel) a home’s foundation can be strengthened by a lesser application of carbon fiber straps.
How Does it Work?
Carbon forms 4 chemical bonds making it’s bonding adhesives unique and endless. Being far stronger than steel and less stiff carbon fiber straps are easy to maneuver and manipulate making for easy installation.
Due to it’s tensile strength carbon fiber straps are able to hold the concrete together while preventing future wall bowing. The top and bottom anchor of carbon fiber is able to secure the wall from moving inward in a tipping or shearing movement. If the external pressure is persistent, the carbon will hold the wall together, however, the wall can still move.
