Sika® CarboDur® BC
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 Sika AnchorFix®-3001, Sika AnchorFix®-3030, Sikadur®-330 or Sikadur®-30 epoxy resin based adhesives for normal application temperatures, or Sikadur®-30 LP* epoxy resin based adhesive for elevated temperatures during application. 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.
- Very high strength
