Shear strengthening of beams

Sika® CarboShear L

Sika® CarboShear L carbon fibre shear links are corrosion resistant, designed for strengthening concrete structures in shear and to anchor Sika® CarboDur® plates at their ends. They are part of the Sika® CarboDur® CFRP Strengthening System.
Sika® CarboShear L shear links are bonded as external reinforcement using Sikadur®-30 epoxy resin based adhesive for normal, or Sikadur®-30 LP epoxy resin based adhesive for elevated temperatures during application. For fixing into the anchorage holes, Sika AnchorFix®-3+ can also be used.
Please refer to the relevant Product Data Sheet for more detailed information about each of these adhesives.

SikaWrap® Hex-103 C

SikaWrap® Hex-103 C is a high strength, unidirectional carbon fiber fabric pre-saturated to form a carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) used to strengthen structural concrete elements.

SikaWrap® FX-50 C

SikaWrap® FX-50 C is a unidirectional carbon fibre string, encased in a plastic envelope, which is used as near surface mounted strengthening and as fibre connector for the anchorage of SikaWrap® fabrics.
