Aslan™ 100 Fiberglass bar is made using a vinyl ester resin matrix with E-CR glass fibers. With 1/4 the weight of steel rebar, this product exceeds the requirements of ASTM D7957 Standard specifications for solid round glass fiber reinforced polymer bars for concrete reinforcing.
A unique use of Aslan™ GFRP bars in the shape of Soft-Eye Openings takes advantage of their “anisotropic” property and make them resist large forces associated with deep foundations such as Tunnel Boring Machines. Aslan™ bars are available in straight lengths, bent stirrups and continuous spiral hoops.
With 1/5 the weight of steel rebar, Aslan™ 200 CFRP bars are typically used to strengthen existing structural concrete members in flexure and shear. They are often added to the concrete cover of an existing structure using a technique called “Near Surface Mount”or NSM strengthening.
Aslan™ 250 series tendon is a proprietary steel anchorage that can be affixed to an Aslan™ 200 Carbon or CFRP bar, which develops the full tensile capacity of the bar. It is considered an “active removable” earth anchor or pre-stressed system.
Aslan™ 400 CFRP laminates are used to structurally strengthen existing concrete or masonry members in flexure and shear. They are pre-cured rectangular plates with a surface texture on one face, which helps improve bond with the structural adhesives.
Aslan™ 500 CFRP tapes are used to structurally strengthen existing concrete or masonry members in flexure and shear. They are pre-cured rectangular bars (not plates) with a surface texture on each wide face helping bond with the structural adhesives. They are added to the structure concrete cover through “Near Surface Mount” or NSM strengthening technique.
Aslan® 600 Fiberglass Dowel Bars are used as a “Load Transfer” device between joints in concrete slabs. With 1/4 the weight of traditional steel dowels, they provide a mechanical connection between slabs but allow for horizontal contraction and expansion of the slab itself.
Aslan™ 700 GFRP rebars or (Nue-Tie™) shear connectors are thermally non-conductive components that help creating composite action and fully insulated concrete sandwich wall panel systems, with edge-to-edge insulation and no thermal penetrations. They can be used according to the design methodology for THiN-Wall™ precast insulated wall panel systems.
