FRP Wrap Concrete Repair
High-strength, light-weight method of reinforcing structural concrete
Banks Industrial Group offers FRP wrap (fiber reinforced polymer) concrete repair of support structures within rough industrial environments. Concrete strengthening reinforces structural properties lost due to cracking, spalling and deterioration. The fiber wrap material itself provides strength and stiffness. The epoxy resin distributes stresses among the fibers and protects them from weathering and chemical effects. Repairs are done in a fraction of the time required for conventional concrete demo and replacement. Our knowledgeable crews will evaluate damage and match a solution to suit the needs of your facility.

Problem: How to Repair Deteriorated Concrete in Confined Areas
Repair of concrete in limited access areas can be challenging for a variety of reasons. Tight working space and the potential for damage to nearby equipment, cables or pipes may prevent the use of conventional repair methods. Furthermore, adding extra layers of concrete or steel plates may not be possible due to narrow clearance. Time is another factor. Concrete demolition, replacement and curing typically exceed one month before return to service. Such lengthy downtime is prohibitive for many operations.
Despite these difficulties, cracked and crumbling concrete structures, particularly those that provide structural support, will need repair or replacement to avoid catastrophic failure.
Solution: Rapid Cure FRP Wrap Concrete Repair
Fortunately, modern FRP wrap repairs provide an effective solution to extend the service life of deteriorated concrete structures. This method is well suited for use in limited access areas such as tanks, utility vaults, pipes and culverts. Our rapid cure, non-toxic materials are lightweight with minimal thickness and the ability to conform to different shapes. They are easily applied in confined spaces. Once cured, the FRP wrap repair has high tensile strength making it a strong and durable solution. Repairs are typically done in 1 or 2 days at a fraction of complete structural replacement cost.
BIG will assess the conditions of your work site and recommend the appropriate repair materials and techniques to best meet your needs. Our experienced professionals will make repairs in a timely manner with minimal impact to your operations.
