Sika® CarboDur® BC

Pultruded carbon fibre rods for structural strengthening as part of the Sika® CarboDur® system

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. Sikadur®-300 epoxy resin based adhesive is used for horizontal applications. Sika® CarboDur® BC rods can also be used for anchoring SikaWrap® fabrics where positive attachment to concrete or masonry is required. Refer to the relevant Product Data Sheet for more detailed information about each adhesive.
