Mapei Americas plans to introduce its fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite systems to the North American and Latin American markets. FRP can be used for several types of structural strengthening, such as rectifying deterioration, addressing design or construction errors and strengthening structures for increased design loads.
Mapei has been producing FRP products since 1997 and has been a major supplier of FRP systems in Europe. Mapei’s FRP composite systems include: MapeWrap C carbon-fiber fabrics, MapeWrap G glass-fiber fabrics, Carboplate carbon-fiber plates, and Maperod C carbon-fiber rods.
In addition, Mapei offers MapeWrap primer, saturant resins and epoxy putty for the smoothing and leveling of a concrete substrate and adhesion of carbon plates and rods.
