Unidirectional 44 g/m² for FRCM strengthening system with inorganic matrix
Pbo-Mesh 44 is a FRCM structural strengthening system with unidirectional PBO mesh and stabilized inorganic matrix for reinforced masonry constructions. The high weight of PBO
makes it suitable for significant applications on masonry especially for wrapping or shear and bending reinforcements.
This strengthening system does not use epoxy resins and its performance equals that of traditional FRP with carbon fiber
sand epoxy binder.
COMPONENTS OF THE SYSTEM:
Unidirectional 44 g/m² PBO mesh available
in two heights:
- 25 cm (roll length equal to 50 m)
- 20 cm (roll length equal to 50 m)*.
Stabilized inorganic matrix specific for
applications on masonry supports (in
compliance with the EN 998-2).

PROPERTIES OF THE SYSTEM
- Increases the shear strength of masonry panels,
the bearing capacity of columns and pillars, and
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).
- Maintains the normal breathability of the substrate
and excludes the formation of superficial
condensation, a possible source of deterioration for
the wall decorations present.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
- Shear and bending reinforcement of the masonry with
respect to the actions in and out of the plane.
- Reinforcement of bending, shear and torsion in reinforced
- Confinement of columns subject to bending and
compression with small and large eccentricity.
- Increase the resistance to simple bending or bending of
columns and beams.
- Confinement of reinforced concrete and masonry columns.
- Improvement of the ductility of the joints between beam
and columns through wrapping.
- Increased strength of the beam-column joint panels by
arranging the fibers according to the tensile isostatics.
