Carbon Fiber Material Compatibility

Carbon Fiber Material Compatibility

Carbon Fiber Material Compatibility

I am concerned for the compatibility of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymerics in use in Concrete Structures. Is there a problem with galvanic corrosion due to the dissimilarity of Carbon fibers in close proximity to steel rebar or strand materials? Any responses are appreciated.

RE: Carbon Fiber Material Compatibility

Dear Sirs,

As you know, there is a great disaster in Turkey in last Tuesday morning 03.02am.

4 cities demolished 95% where close to Istanbul.

In Istanbul most of the investors, house owners, factories asked us to check their buildings are OK and safe for accommodation.

1.Do you know any test method –non destractative test NDT- to measure building rehabilitation situation

2.Do you have any repair techniques such as carbon fiber reinforcement, epoxy bonding etc.?

Please inform me as soon as possible via fax +90.216.3260200 or merbas@garanti.net.tr

In short I am in the thermography business. I make regularly thermal test to factories and have good name in this business in Turkey.

As a thermographer, I have electrical engineering degree B.Sc. from technical university of Istanbul

Your early feedback is highly appreciated.

Best regards.


RE: Carbon Fiber Material Compatibility

Post your question to ACI concrete forum. ACI publishes a structural journal and a material journal bimonthly. Over the past few years both magazines have included many articles relevant to your inquiry. The authors of these articles can surely lead you to the products that you need.

RE: Carbon Fiber Material Compatibility

My understanding is that carbon fiber reinforcement is typically used around the exterior of concrete members to strengthen them. Therefore, there should not be any contact between the steel reinforcement and the CF Wraps used in those applications.
