Composite solutions for sustainable & resilient infrastructure
FRP Composites are typically made using glass, basalt or carbon fibers that have been cured in resin. The outcome can be lightweight, high-strength, corrosion-free and time enduring building material. Today, composites are used in airplanes, spaceships, helicopter, cars, bicycles, wind turbines, offshore platforms and most recently as a bulding material for infrastructure.
The future of the infrastructure industry is dependent on how sustainable and resilient the planning, manufacturing and construction of future projects are. Infrastructure is designed to be safe and last as long as possible. On top of that, infrastructure should have low-life cycle costs and have as little impact on the natural environment as possible.
MiniBars are a high-performance Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite macrofiber, using Basalt or Alkali-Resistance Glass and engineered to provide high tensile, post-cracking strength to concrete while at the same time increasing toughness, impact and fatique resistance of concrete. MiniBars are a structural synthetic macrofiber that can be used as secondary and/or a primary reinforcement. MiniBars disperse quickly and evenly throughout the concrete matrix. They stay suspended in mix due to the specific gravity being similar to concrete. This promotes uniform performance throughout the concrete cross section with out fibers showing on formed or finished surfaces unless cement paste is removed.
AIT Composites GWall is a sheet pile system that utilizes a fully composite system including FRP sheeting and walers to provide a non-corrosive system that will not degrade for over 100 years. Its unique stiffness properties allow for a more efficient use of the soil's active properties. Can also be used for reinforcing existing systems to extend their service life. GWall is 1/4 the weight of steel which aids in lowering trasportation costs and the overall construction time.
AIT Composites GArch is a non-corrosive, high-performance FRP arch shaped tubed, superior to concrete and steel. The GArch design requires only 1/5 of the concrete reqired for a traditional concrete bridge. Highly customizable based on project requirements. GArch is best for bridge structures spanning up to 80'.
AIT Composites GBeam is a non-corrosive, high-performance FRP bridge beam superior to concrete and steel for spans up to 120'. Little to no lifetime maintenance. GBeam girders require no concrete fill, making them significantly lighter than traditional concrete or steel beams. GBeam is a fraction of the weightof steel and concrete which makes it less expensive to transport, easier to handle in the field, and much faster to install.
AIT Composites GDeck is a pultruded FRP decking product that eliminates the need for a concrete deck. Advanced composite material create a durable, strong, lightweight, corrugated FRP deck that efficiently supports heavy loads. It can be manufactured to any length, and is easily attached with self-drilling screws.
AIT Composites GPole is a FRP reinforced utility pole that will not degrade for over 100 years. Great for utility and catenary poles. GPole exceeds competitors standards by utilizing an impoved resin system that provides higher durability, UV protection, and better alkali resistance characteristics. GPole is 1/4 of the weight of steel and 1/2 weight of wood. ANSI 05.1 Class 3 (wood pole equivalent)
LithTec Road Bases
An optimized performance LithTech base lift is capable of achieving higher strength values than a stablized FDR treatment. In general, the maximum unconfirmed strength value for a cement-stabilized FDR lift is 400 psi. While cement can be added to increase strenghth values, it is not recommented as it becomes too brittle. However, a LithTec base due to increased ductility, increased density, reduced porosity, and overall lift matix characteristics is capable of sustaining strenghs from 400psi to 800psi.
