MasterBrace MBar

Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer system for structural strengthening

How does MasterBrace MBar work?

MasterBrace MBar is a ready to use pultruded carbon fibre rod, which provides a high tensile strength and can be used for flexural reinforcement of concrete, masonry and timber elements.

Recommended uses:

  • Ideal when the cover of the steel bars is very low, as MasterBrace MBar does not corrode
  • Can be used for slim or narrow architectural concrete
  • Reduce deformation under working loads (increase in rigidity)
  • Ideal for use in historical structures

What makes MasterBrace MBar a unique solution?

MasterBrace MBar is used to replace or augment steel reinforcement in concrete structures. To add reinforcement to timber and masonry elements. Suitable for NSM (near surface mounted reinforcement) of structures.

What are the benefits of MasterBrace MBar?

  • Increases the load-bearing capacity (e.g.structural conversion following a change in capacity load)
  • Increases the fatigue strength
  • Improves the performance of cracked structures (increase in durability)
  • Supplied with peel ply, which gives better protection during handling and improved adhesion to the substrate.
  • Can be buried in the structure
  • Allows faster installation, thereby reducing costs
  • Increases the durability of the structure by protecting it against the aggressive action of chlorides and freezing and thawing cycles
