Bi-directional 10+10 g/m² PBO mesh for FRCM strengthening system with inorganic matrix
Pbo-Mesh 10/10 is an FRCM structural strengthening system with bidirectional PBO mesh and a stabilized inorganic matrix for reinforced masonry structures. The limited weight makes it suitable to prevent overturning and for the reinforcement of non structural components, often with the use of PBO connectors. This strengthening system does not use epoxy resins and its performance equals that of traditional FRP with carbon fibers
and epoxy binder.
COMPONENTS OF THE SYSTEM:
Bi-directional 10 g/m² in warp and 10 g/m²
in weft PBO fiber mesh available in two
- 50 cm (roll length 15 m)
- 100 cm (roll length 15 m).
Stabilized pozzolanic inorganic matrix
in compliance with the EN 998-2
Connection element made of PBO
fiber, Ø 3 and 6 mm, 10 m long.
Stabilized inorganic matrix for the
application of PBO-JOINT.
PROPERTIES OF THE SYSTEM
- It eliminates the risk of triggering local collapse
mechanisms due to the overturning of infill walls,
thanks also to the connector that is inserted
between the wall and the beam/slab.
- Increases the shear strength of masonry panels,
the bearing capacity of columns and pillars, and the
elimination of the formation of hinges on arches
and vaults, favoring the redistribution of tensions
within the structure.
- Significant increase in the ductility of the reinforced
structural element, high energy dissipation capacity
and high reliability of the system, even if subjected
to cyclical overloads (e.g., earthquake).
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
- Light interventions on load-bearing masonry
structures and on infill walls.
- The replacement of regular reinforced slabs with
slabs reinforced with fiber glass, synthetic materials,
or welded wire mesh.
- Creation of an anti-overturning system for vertical
non-bearing infill structures, limiting cracks that can
lead to collapse or overturning of the infill wall itself.
