RE: Corrosion in reinforcing steel in slabs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

From, The Graduate:  "In a word, plastics".  Seriously, there are a lot of plastic composite companies that do just this.  VSL should be contacted.  Here in San Diego we have Fife plastics.  They laminate carbon (or kevlar or ?) fibers to the underside of the deck to add tensile strength.  I think you will have trouble with your existing corroded rebar, however.  It will continue to rust and pop off concrete giving you nothing to attached the composite to.

Does anybody have a good reference (books, articles, catalogs, web sites, etc.) regarding some methods to repair elevated slabs whose rebars are severely corroded? Is there any commercial product or technique to restore the structural capacity of the slab, other than demolishing and re-building? Thanks in advance.
