How Strong Are Carbon Fiber Straps?
Are you noticing cracks or bowing in your basement wall, but you’re not sure how to fix this issue? Carbon fiber straps might be a great option, but are they strong enough to hold your wall in place? In this video, we will discuss the strength of carbon fiber straps and if they are right for you.
Carbon fiber straps are a product used to reinforce and stabilize a foundation wall. Most carbon fiber straps are made by using solid carbon, but this is not the best method to use. Carbon by itself is very hard and smooth, so it will not easily adhere to the wall, or to the epoxy. Think of it like trying to glue a smooth piece of plastic to another surface: no matter how long you let the glue dry, you can peel that plastic away.
