DYMAT® BT FRP System

Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composite System

The DYMAT® BT FRP System is a state-of-the-art Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composite System comprising of specialized synthetic fabrics and resins. These materials are combined together to create unique tested & proven products of highest quality for the most difficult structural rehabilitation and strengthening projects.


DYMAT’s tailored made glass and carbon fiber fabrics are saturated with environmentally friendly resins to tackle any difficult application; underwater, high-temperature or blast resistance projects requirements are easily met and are backed by DYMAT’s Gold Warranty Program (GWP).


The DYMAT® BT FRP System (*) is used routinely for corrosion protection, pipe rehabilitation, seismic strengthening, structural upgrades, fire protection, and blast mitigation for private and government sensitive structures. It is engineered and installed in all kinds of structures in land, near water or even underwater in the most adverse environments and under the most difficult design requirements.


Our trained engineers can provide you with the in-depth engineering support and free of charge preliminary designs to clients, engineers, contractors, state agencies and private owners alike.

 

(*) THE BT FRP SYSTEM is manufactured by DYMAT® CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTS INC.

ADDITIONAL CARBON FABRICS

The DYMAT® BT FRP System forms the next generation of composite systems developed by Mr. Edward Fyfe for the structural strengthening industry. Mr. Fyfe was the founder and pioneer in this field of this industry more than 30 years ago, having developed numerous relevant patents and having successfully completed thousands of structural strengthening projects throughout the world. 

The improvement percentages in the composite laminate properties of the DYMAT® BT FRP System relatively to the next leading system are: 35% for DYMAT® Carbon Fiber System and 15% for DYMAT® Glass Fiber System.
