Fibre Composite Testing Services
The use of fibre composites in the repair and rehabilitation of commercial, industrial, residential, and transportation structures has become a popular application method in the construction industry.
The most commonly used fibre composites are single- and multi-ply composites made of uni-or bi-directional carbon or glass fibre mats and epoxy resins. Where properly used, fibre composites can add significant strength to structural elements at a very small weight penalty.
Metro’s engineers and technicians provide quality assurance, quality control, and testing services related to fibre composite installations and determine tensile strength, modulus and elongation to rupture to ASTM D3039.
