Textile-reinforced concrete for high- stability lightweight construction
In order to build stable concrete elements based on textile structures, the carbon or fibre-glass matrix must be drenched with a special coating that, on the on hand, stiffens the supporting matrix and, on the other hand, facilitates its bonding with the cement. CHT has the innovative know-how to develop these chemical coatings. Many years of application expertise provides the basis for the realization of customized construction designs with tailor-made material features using this technology.
Textile-reinforced concrete facilitates highly stable, lightweight construction and offers many advantages over conventional concrete – above all for the environment:
- Reduction of the concrete volume of up to 70 % using fibre-glass or carbon fibres for reinforcement
- Elimination of the corrosion protection sheathing
- Low water and energy consumption
- Reduction of CO2 emissions during cement production
