Sika CarboDur BC Rods are pultruded carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminates with a circular cross section, designed for strengthening concrete, timber and masonry. Sika CarboDur BC Rods are bonded into slots as near surface mounted reinforcement using Sikadur 33, Sikadur 330 or Sikadur 30 epoxy resin based adhesives for normal application temperatures, or Sikadur 30 LP epoxy resin based adhesive for elevated temperatures during application. Sikadur 300 epoxy resin based adhesive is used for horizontal applications. The Sika CarboDur BC Rods can also be used for anchoring SikaWrap fabrics where positive attachment to concrete or masonry is required.

Please refer to the relevant Product Data Sheet for more detailed information about each of the adhesives.

Sika CarboDur BC Rods are used to improve, increase or repair the performance and resistance of structures for:

Increased Load Carrying Capacity:

  • Increasing the load capacity of floor slabs, beams and bridge sections
  • For the installation of heavier machinery
  • To stabilise vibrating structures
  • For changes in building use

Damage to structural elements due to:

  • Deterioration of the original construction materials
  • Steel reinforcement corrosion
  • Accidents (Vehicle impact, earthquakes, fire)

Improvement of serviceability and durability:

  • Reduced deflection and crack width
  • Stress reduction in the steel reinforcement
  • Improved fatigue resistance

Change of the structural system:

  • Removal of walls and / or columns
  • Removal of floor and wall sections to create access / openings

Resistance to possible events:

  • Increased resistance to earthquakes, impact or explosion etc.

To repair design or construction defects such as:

  • Insufficient / inadequate reinforcement
  • Insufficient / inadequate structural depth

Combination with other strengthening products:

  • Doweling applications
  • Anchoring of SikaWrap fabrics
