BETONTEX System

FRP Fiber Reinforced Facing

The BETONTEX fiber-reinforced facing system consists of carbon or glass fiber fabrics, meshes, flakes to be on-site impregnated and/or preformed laminates and rods to be bonded by means of thermosetting epoxy resins. It enables the increasing of shear, flexural and compressive strength of historic or modern structures.

The FRP fiber-reinforced facing technique is the ideal solution for:

  • Fastening, confining and encircling buildings
  • In-plane and out-of-plane reinforcement of structural elements
  • Consolidation of arches and vaults
  • Strengthening and stiffening of steel, timber or hollow clay blocks slabs
  • Improvement on compressive strength of masonry and concrete columns and piers
  • Consolidation of degraded structures

With BETONTEX system it is possible to apply localised reinforcements on the most stressed structural elements or zones such as pillars, beams, beam-pillar connections and inter-floor and top kerbs. The application is therefore carried out in a punctual manner, calibrating the quantity and arrangement of the fibers so as to optimise the mechanical properties of the reinforcement. Unidirectional, bidirectional and multi-axial fabrics are available for on-site impregnation, suitable for application on architectural elements with irregular geometries.

BETONTEX is the FRP facing system for reinforce and repair structures, as well as for avoid overturning in non-structural walls. It uses high strength, high-modulus carbon fibre fabrics or meshes combined with thermosetting epoxy resins.

Fibre-reinforced facing allows to increase shear strength, in-plane and out-of-plane flexural strength of masonry.

FRP Fibre Reinforced Facing Technique can be used for the prevention of local and global collapse mechanisms and to achieve increases in mechanical strength and ductility at the intrados and/or extrados of arches and vaults.

The application involves a punctual reinforcement, sized in quantity and arrangement of fibers according to the project requirements and the required safety level; it can then be plastered to restore the original appearance. Thanks to the very low thickness of the application, the load increment is negligible.

BETONTEX can be used to solve stiffness problems on slabs. This system, placed at the extrados of slabs according to a project scheme, provides better stiffness and distribution of the seismic action, with a negligible mass contribution. Applied to the soffit, it also improves the flexural capacity of the floor.

With Betontex system, FRP facing can be used to reinforce masonry and reinforced concrete columns and pillars.

Facing by means of carbon-fiber fabric strips and epoxy resins provides adequate confinement that counteracts transverse expansion of the structural element and results in an improved element performance in terms of both strength and ductility.

It can be subsequently plastered to restore the original appearance.
