FRCM Applications

Significant flexural, axial or shear strength gains can be realized with an easy-to-apply composite that does not add significant weight or mass to the structure. FRCM provides a low-impact, low-weight alternative to traditional concrete strengthening and retrofit methods. Many times, it is the most economical strengthening solution available, given its reduced preparation installation time.

  • Projects that also require a surface repair and leveling in addition to strengthening
  • Projects with large, overhead, and vertical surface areas where higher production rates are possible with shotcrete material
  • Repair applications that cannot afford significant member enlargement
  • Composite strengthening applications that require an increased level of abrasion and fire resistance
