High Strength Composite Laminate Structural Strengthening System For Concrete Structures
Estoplate is a Carbon Fiber Laminates Strips, composite material for reinforcement of new and the strengthening of existing structures. The material exhibit excellent resistance towards corrosion and is able to dissipate energy as required in earthquake scenarios. It comes in various thicknesses of carbon strips (mm). They are known as;
Estoplate is used for strengthening columns and beams of load bearing structures specifically where improvement to shear strength and deformation properties is required. Typical applications include piers, columns, connecting beams and slabs of railway and road bridges, buildings and towers.
Estoplate Strips tensile strength can be stable for 10,000 hours with accelerated exposure test (it is equivalent to 30 years natural exposure), providing:
It is used in strict accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
It is used within the design parameters stated in this datasheet.
It is used in conjunction with other approved building systems and materials.
Durability covers weathering and adhesive characteristics. For conditions outside those stated in this data sheet, contact Estop Technical Specifications Department.
Estop reserves the right to modify this time period, depending on but not limited to climatic, site and environmental conditions such as chemical attack, abrasion, water immersion and adverse climatic and temperature conditions.

Estoplate Adhesive Properties
Concrete surfaces must be dry, smooth, sound and free from debris and loose material. Surfaces must be fully cured and free from contamination.
Through preparation of the substrate is vital with light grit blasting recommended to remove all deleterious substances and provide a suitable key. All dust and debris must be removed prior to proceeding. Blow holes or imperfections should be filled with Estorex Putty or Estocrete WR prior to application of Estoplate Adhesive.
The base and hardener components of Estoplate Adhesive should be thoroughly stirred before the two are mixed together.
Pour the hardener into a suitably sized mixing vessel and add the base resin into the hardener. The use of a heavy- duty slow speed, flameproof or air driven drill fitted with a mixing paddle is desirable. Mix these components in the quantities supplied taking care to ensure all containers are scraped clean.
Apply Estoplate Adhesive to the prepared substrate using a stiff brush, working the Adhesive well into the substrate at a coverage rate of 0.3kg/m .
Arrange enough material, manpower and equipments to carry out the application within the resin’s pot life. The base and hardener components of Estoplate Adhesive must be used up once mixed.
Immediately after the application of Estoplate Adhesive install the Estoplate once the Estoplate Adhesive cured.

Estop offers a technical support package to specifiers, end-users and contractors, as well as on site technical assistance.
Estoplate Adhesive should be stored on pallets in dry conditions. Under these conditions the product will have a shelf life of 12 months.
If stored in extreme whether condition the shelf life may be reduced.
Estop manufactures and offer a wide range of complementary products which includes waterstops, waterproofing products, grouts, anchors, specialized flooring products. In addition, a wide range of products formulated for repair and refurbishment of spalled concrete are available
