Aslan™ 600 Glass FRP Dowel Bars are used as a “Load Transfer” device between joints in concrete slabs. They provide a mechanical connection between slabs but allow for horizontal contraction and expansion of the slab itself. This results in lower deflections at the joints and reduced slab stresses. The Achilles heel of concrete pavement is the joint. Joint failure is often the result of corrosion of the steel dowel bar. Aslan™ 600 Dowels will not rust or corrode, locking a concrete joint together or causing spalling of the surrounding concrete. In addition, while providing the necessary shear capacity at the joint, the lower stiffness of the GFRP Dowels may reduce fatigue stresses in the concrete surrounding the dowel. GFRP Dowels are also electromagnetically transparent and frequently used in high-speed toll collection areas near inductance sensors. Since 1993, we have been at the forefront of worldwide academic and industry efforts to define consensus FRP standards and methods.
