Repair and Strengthen in One Shot: Introducing the Fabric-Reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM)



The Next Generation of Composite Strengthening Systems™ for Concrete and Masonry Structures

Repair, protect and strengthen aging, damaged or overloaded concrete and masonry structures in one application and significantly reduce your installed cost.

What is FRCM? Fabric-Reinforced Cementitious Matrix Overview

FRCM or Fabric-Reinforced Cementitious Matrix combines a high-performance sprayable mortar with a carbon-fiber grid to create a thin structural layer that will not add significant weight or volume to the existing structure.

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 and installation time.
