Carbon fiber — specifically C-GRID carbon fiber grid — is the enabling technology that gives CarbonCast its strength and energy-saving continuous insulation. AltusGroup Executive Director John Carson will be speaking about carbon fiber reinforcing in precast concrete at the CF 22 conference on Nov. 17 in Greenville, S.C.
His presentation will detail the many benefits for FRP uses in precast including sandwich wythe connectors with specific emphasis on CFRP grid (i.e. CarbonCast developed by AltusGroup and its members). The presentation will focus on sustainability and resilience, composite design, and economic benefits of precast vs. other mass wall systems. The presentation will cover many local S.C. and North American projects made using CarbonCast and address the future for the technology into 2023 and beyond.
