How to maintain a giant dam?

Mar. 27, 2018

Dams also belong to reinforced concrete buildings, but they are different from ordinary buildings. The biggest difference is that the dams are huge. The seemingly rock-solid dam, if there is a problem with the internal force structure, it is extremely prone to  appear cracks and is likely to break like a cracker. The cracks in the dam and the cracks in the ordinary building can not be the same. If the dams have cracks, it is very easy  to have water seepage, and the ability to resist water pressure will decline. Even a little crack can not be underestimated. Today we will introduce to you the reinforcement of dams with carbon fiber cloth.


Why should the dams be reinforced with carbon fiber cloth? It is well known that cracks have a great impact on dams. Cracks can cause water seepage in dams, which can lead to internal corrosion and structural damage. Therefore, in the selection of reinforcing materials, there must be a strong reinforcement, and it must be waterproof and moisture-proof. Carbon fiber cloth is a better choice for reinforcement materials.  Nanjing Mankate, the domestic manufacturer of carbon fiber cloth, has rich experience in  the dam reinforcement. What advantages can Nanjing Mankate carbon fiber cloth provide for dam consolidation?

1. Mankate carbon fiber cloth is waterproof and in line with the dam usage scenarios;

2. Mankate carbon fiber cloth is resistant to acid and alkali, corrosion resistance, and its service life is more than 50 years.

3. Flexible winding, suitable for all kinds of curved surface, special-shaped components reinforcement;

4. Light weight, not increase the weight of the dam;

5. Tensile strength can be up to 8 times than steel;


It can be seen that carbon fiber cloth is not only lighter than steel, but also more resistant than steel. It is not afraid of the wet environment. It can be said that it is particularly suitable for dam reinforcement. At present, most of the electricity in China is exported by hydropower stations, so ensuring the safety of these dams is to ensure our energy. Nanjing Mankate carbon fiber cloth is very suitable for dam reinforcement, bridge reinforcement, underwater tunnel reinforcement and other projects. I hope you can choose a professional, dedicated, and excellent team of Nanjing Mankate. We will serve you wholeheartedly.
