Location: Food Processing Plant, MI
Contractor: Smith Waterproofing, Almont MI
Engineer: Gateway Engineering & Surveying
Materials Used: 300 gsm Unidirectional Tow Sheet & 4550 Epoxy Resin
Project Scope: Processing Plant combined high humidity and a very acidic environment. The corrosive atmosphere deteriorated CMU building, creating loss of compression capacity a loss of tensile capacity.
Solution: Fortress 300 g.s.m. Carbon Fiber Fabric was installed 4ft on center to increase compression capacity.
Conclusions: Fortress Carbon Fiber was designed to tie foundation back together while increasing its compression capacity, and still maintain plant production.
