CARBONSEAL™: The Highest Strength and Resistance to Harsh Environments

piling repair

When you have ongoing corrosion of concrete, that can cause loss of structural integrity, or structural failure.
You likely have limited time to research and source solutions, or organize and lead repair efforts. So nothing is resolved and the existing problems get worse as new ones arise.

HJ3 is a single-source vendor that will take you from beginning engineering through to a completed installation. We have engineers, estimators, project managers and certified installers to tailor solutions for you. We have the resources to solve your structural problems, no matter the size or complexity.

CarbonSeal™ protects from future corrosion and returns structural integrity.

Bridge Pile and Beam Project

This bridge had 93 piles and 2 trusses that needed repair, strengthening and protection from brackish water. The piles needed repair extended 10 feet above and 5 feet below the waterline. HJ3 had an above and below water team of certified installers.

Problem

bridge piling repairs

A bridge with deteriorating concrete on 93 each reinforced concrete piles and 2 each reinforced RCT (Reinforced Concrete Truss) spans in a bridge outside of Texas. The bridge had cracked and spalling concrete with exposed rebar.

Installation

The columns were demoed, steel repaired or replaced and the columns formed for the concrete pour. The surface was prepped by grinding to create a profile and remove lattence concrete. HJ3’s CFRP system was then applied over the cured concrete. A chemical resistant topcoat was then applied and then a UV resistant topcoat applied over the entire repair.

Solution

The CarbonSeal™ repair restored the strength of the piles and trusses above and below the water. The repair has extended the life of the bridge by about 20 years.
