Fiberglass composite reinforcement. Manufacturers from the EU and Ukraine.
Currently, composite materials are used in various industries, such as aircraft manufacturing, shipbuilding, railways and electronics, energy and biomedicine, chemistry and petrochemicals, and, of course, in all types of construction.
Composite materials are distinguished from other structural materials by their unique combination of rigidity, corrosion resistance, and high strength, lightweight, and ability to withstand high temperatures, facilitate transportation and handling, assembly, and installation while being the most cost-effective throughout their service life. Disadvantages that can hardly be called critical include a low modulus of transverse elasticity and insufficient heat resistance.
Today, along with conventional reinforcement, composite reinforcement is increasingly used to reinforce concrete structures. The main types of composite reinforcement are fiberglass and basalt.
The name of the reinforcement stores the material from which the reinforcement is made. Each of its types has unique properties. Composite reinforcement is usually supplied with a diameter from 4 to 32 mm and any complete length, and with a diameter over 12 mm, it is cut into rods.
One of the key benefits of fiberglass reinforcement is its ability to extend the life of concrete structures, ensuring their strength and reliability for many decades. This makes it an environmentally friendly option as it reduces the need for frequent repairs and replacements, thereby minimizing waste and resource consumption.
