Sika® CarboShear L

Sika CarboShear L is a high performance CFRP shear strengthening system for reinforced concrete structures. It consists of two components: Sika Carboshear L shaped CFRP plates and Sikadur-30 adhesive. Sika CarboShear complements the Sika CarboDur composite strengthening system used for structural strengthening.

Sika® CarboShear L carbon fibre shear links are corrosion resistant, designed for strengthening concrete structures in shear and to anchor Sika® CarboDur® plates at their ends. They are part of the Sika® CarboDur® CFRP Strengthening System.
Sika® CarboShear L shear links are bonded as external reinforcement using Sikadur®-30 epoxy resin based adhesive for normal, or Sikadur®-30 LP epoxy resin based adhesive for elevated temperatures during application. For fixing into the anchorage holes, Sika AnchorFix®-3+ can also be used.
Please refer to the relevant Product Data Sheet for more detailed information about each of these adhesives.
