Unidirectional E-glass fiber fabric for the MasterBrace Composite Strengthening System
How does MasterBrace 900-50FG work?
MasterBrace 900-50FG is a dry fabric constructed of high quality E-glass fibers. These fabrics are applied onto the surface of existing structural members in buildings, bridges, and other structures using the MasterBrace family of performance polymers.
The result is an externally bonded FRP (fiber reinforced polymer) reinforcement system that is engineered to increase the structural performance of these members. Once installed, the MasterBrace System delivers externally bonded reinforcement with outstanding long-term physical and mechanical properties.
