Composite materials for building? The technician's response

Composite materials are more and more applicated in the structural-reinforcement-field techniques. However, whether employed in reinforced concrete structures or in masonry buildings adaptation, in the choice of the materials we are never facing with a single solution.
But what do we really know about composite materials and about fields in where are applied? Furthermore, how to properly choose the right cycle and materials to use for?

The above questions are answered by Eng. Stefano Agnetti, Kimia S.p.A Tecnchical Support Dpt.

Kimitech FRP-LOCK® – Patented antidelamination locking system

Kimitech FRP-LOCK®Kimitech FRP-LOCK® is the mechanical locking system patented, tested and certified to be used together with a structural reinforcement with composite materials, in order to improve the performances of the system in its entirety.

Kimitech FRP-LOCK® action, indeed, by preventing the delamination of the fibers applied to the support, let the locking system be more efficient by best exploiting the resistances theoretically ensured by the composites.

That feature is particularly useful when the reinforcements are applied:
