Sika® CarboDur® Rods

Carbon fiber rods for structural strengthening

Sika® CarboDur® Rods are pultruded carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) rods designed for strengthening concrete, timber and masonry structures. The rods are primarily installed using the Near Surface Mounted (NSM) technique by inserting into grooves cut into the substrate and bonded with an epoxy resin. The rods can also be used for anchoring SikaWrap fabrics for positive attachment to concrete or masonry.

  • Very easy to handle
  • High modulus of elasticity
  • Can accept traffic on surface (rods are countersunk)
  • High bond strength due to full encapsulation
  • Rods are not visible once installed
  • Outstanding fatigue resistance
  • Alkali resistant
