C-GRID®, Product of the Future, at the Big 5 Construction Show in Dubai
C-GRID® is a high-performance reinforcement produced by Chomarat, made by bonding ultra high-strength carbon tow with epoxy resin. It enables precast constructions to be thinner, lighter, more durable and less costly overall than conventional precast and other building systems. C-GRID® carbon grids will be presented for the first time at the Big 5 Building and Construction Show in Dubai, at the booth of its partner and exclusive distributor B&R Building Materials (stand number MEC H147). This show is the largest platform for the construction community to share, source and learn about the most innovative solutions for the concrete industry.
An efficient material for innovative, greener concrete building solutions
C-GRID® carbon fiber grid offers a unique solution for the concrete builder: “For architectural cladding or insulated wall panels, precast concrete is improved by integrating ultra-strong, non-corrosive C-GRID into the wall panel during fabrication. Taking the place of steel reinforcement, C-GRID is a real enabling technology, providing better factory-made precast concrete elements” explains John Leatham, CHOMARAT North America, Sales and Marketing Director.
With the properties of C-GRID thin walls are greener:
- Lighter and stronger, because non-corrosive carbon fibers require less protective concrete
- Durable, as C-GRID® offers outstanding crack control
- Attractive and versatile, with limitless design options
Over 30 million FT. of C-GRID® reinforced precast has been installed since 2003!
See it on the stand of B&R Building Materials & Verheyen Precast, with the support of CHOMARAT (stand number MEC H147), at the Big 5 Show, from 23 to 26 November 2015, at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
