FRP as a Retrofitting Solution for Chimneys
The Chemicals and Gases leaving Chimneys cause rapid deterioration and corrosion of the reinforcement in concrete Chimneys. FRP products offer unique advantages for such repair . Thin sheets of FRP with a thickness of approximately 0.05 inch (1.3 mm) can be applied similar to wallpapers to strengthen the Chimney. Afzir engineers will determine the number and orientation of fibers in each layer of the FRP fabric and will provide sealed engineering drawings for such repairs.
Furthermore , Chimneys often require repair and/or strengthening due to corrosion of reinforcing steel and general deterioration of materials. In these cases, FRP offers a very fast and cost-effective repair alternative.
