Sika CarboDur Plates

Pultruded Carbon Fiber Plates for Structural Strengthening



Sika CarboDur plates are pultruded carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP)
laminates designed for strengthening concrete, timber and masonry structures.
Sika Carbodur plates are bonded onto the structure as external reinforcement using
Sikadur 30 epoxy resin


To strengthen reinforced concrete and timber structure for :

Loading increases
Increasing the live loads warehouses
Increased traffic volumes on bridges
Installation of heavy machinery in industrial buildings
Vibrating structures
Changes of building utilization
Damage to structural parts
Ageing of construction materials
Steel reinforcement corrosion
Vehicle impact
Serviceability improvements
Decrease in deformation
Stree reduction in steel reinforcement
Crack width reduction
Change in structural system
Removal of walls or columns
Removal of slab sections for openings
Design or construction defects
Insufficient reinforcements
Insufficient structural depth

Notes on Design

General remarks
Sika CarboDur-laminate has no plastic deformation reserve.
Therefore the maximum bending resistance of a strengthened section is reached
when laminated failure occurs during steel yield and before concrete failure. The
mode of failure is influenced by the laminate cross-section. To limit crack widths
and deformation the yield point should not be reached in the reinforcing bars under
service conditions.
Any shear cracks which occur must be prevented from causing displacement on
the strengthened surface and shearing of the laminate. Stress and deformation
calculations can be made by the normal methods. They should be verified in
accordance with standards SIA 160 (1989) and 162 (1989).
Procedure for assessing the condition of the structure
Dimension (geometry, reinforcement, evenness of surface to be strengthened),
quality of existing construction materials, ambient climatic conditions, agreed
conditions of service.


Bearing safety :
Non strengthened structure (with allowance for a reduced total safety factor =
Strengthened structure (with the mode of failure described above, check on the
Shearing of laminate
Fatigue resistance :
Check on concrete and steel stresses
Serviceability :
Deformation (with average strains, assuming elastic behaviour of the structure
and time based strain changes in the concrete)
Steel stressed (no plastic deformation in service conditions).
Crack widths (by limiting the steel stresses in service conditions)

Instruction for Use

Substrate Quality

Evenness / plane or level

The surface to be strengthened must be leveled, with variations and formwork
marks not greater than 0.50 mm. Plane and level of the substrate to be checked
with a metal batten. Tolerance for 2 m length max. 5 mm and for 0.30 m length 1
Substrate strength (concrete, masonry, natural stone) must be verified in all cases

Minimum adhesive strength of the prepared concrete substrate is 1.5 N/mm .

(if these values can not be reached, then see the SikaWrap Fabric Technical Data
Sheet for alternative Sika solutions
Concrete must be older than 28 days

Substrate Preparation

Concrete :
Substrate must be sound, dry, clean and free from laitance, ice, standing water,
grease, oils, old surface treatments or coatings and all loosely adhering particles.
Concrete must be cleaned and prepared to achieve a laitance and contaminants
free, open textured surface.
Preparation: Blast-clean, scabble or grind.
If there are large blowholes on the concrete surface, these must first be filled with
structural repair material such as Sikadur 741 repair mortar. The Sikadur-30
adhesive must be used as a bonding layer to ensure a good bond with the
concrete substrate.
Timber :
Clean, free from grease and oil, no loose particles.
Preparation: Planing, grinding or sanding. Dust must be removed by vacuum
Plate preparation :
Immediately prior to the application of Sikadur 30, solvent wipe the bonding
surface with Sika Colma Cleaner to remove contaminants. Wait until the surface is
dry before applying the adhesive.


Pre-dosed Pack of Sikadur 30 :

Stir the material well in the original containers. Add component B to component A.
Mix with an electric low speed hand mixer (max. 500 rpm) for about 3 minutes to
uniform appearance. Entrain as little air as possible.
The pot life begins when the resin and hardener are mixed. It is shorter at high
temperatures and longer at low temperatures. The greater the quantity mixed, the
shorter the pot life. To obtain longer workability at high temperatures, the mixed
adhesive may be divided into portions. Another method is to chill components A
and B before mixing them.


Place the Sika Carbodur plate on a table and clean the unlabelled side with Colma
Cleaner using a white rag. Apply the well-mixed Sikadur 30 adhesive with a special
dome shaped spatula onto the cleaned Carbodur laminate. Apply the Sikadur 30
adhesive carefully to the properly cleaned and prepared substrate, with a spatula
to form a thin layer.
Within the open time of the adhesive, place the Sikadur 30 coated Sika Carbodur
plate onto the Sikadur 30 coated concrete surface. Using a Sika rubber roller,
press the plate into the adhesive until the material is forced out on both sides of
the laminate. Remove surplus adhesive.
Intersection / multiple layers
Where there are to be plate intersections or crossovers, the first Sika Carbodur
plate should be degreased with Sika Colma Cleaner before overlaying with
adhesive and the second plate applied.


Clean tools immediately with Colma Cleaner. Wash hand and skin thoroughly in
warm soap water. Before curing Sikadur-30 components A+B are a water pollutant
and should not be discharged into drains, waterways or soil.
Colma Cleaner and Sikadur-30 residues must always be disposed of properly.
Cured material can only be removed mechanically.

Important Notes

A suitably qualified Engineer must be responsible for the design of the

strengthening works.
This application is structural and great care must be taken in selecting suitably
experienced and trained specialist labourers.
Only apply plates within the open time of Sikadur 30.
Care must be taken when cutting the plates. Use suitable protective clothing,
gloves, eye protection and respirator.
The Sika CarboDur system must be protected from permanent exposure to direct
Maximum admissible service temperature is +50oC.
The instructions in the Technical Data Sheet must be followed when applying
Sikadur - 30 adhesive.
