Global Leader in the FRP Strengthening Industry
FYFE Company is the manufacturer of products and strengthening systems, and includes a global network of certified applicators, who are global leaders in the use of externally bonded Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) systems for strengthening, repair and restoration of masonry, concrete, steel and wooden structures.
Fibrwrap® systems are specialized carbon, glass, aramid and hybrid fabrics combined with polymers. This unique combination, creates the tested and proven Fibrwrap® advanced composite systems. Fibrwrap® systems are engineered, specified and installed to solve a host of structural deficiencies or demands in existing structures.
Fibrwrap® enhances the structural capacity of existing elements that require additional strengthening, rehabilitation and repair, and provides the following benefits:
- Seismic Retrofit
- Pipe Rehabilitation
- Structural Preservation
- Comprehensive Force Protection
- Blast Mitigation
- Corrosion Related Repair and Rehabilitation
- Additional Loading
- Environmental Protection
Fibrwrap® systems are primarily used as externally bonded or near-surface mounted additions to existing structural elements such as columns, beams, slabs, walls, pipes, tanks, chimneys and structural connections. The industries and types of structures to which we provide retrofit solutions include:
- Buildings: commercial, municipal and residential
- Transportation Infrastructure
- Industrial Facilities
- Waterfront Structures
- Water Transmission, Storage and Treatment Facilities
- Comprehensive Force Protection: blast mitigation
