ARTIFACT IN CONCRETE WITH A PLASTIC REINFORCEMENT

MISE-UIBM
Patent number 0001420342

Abstract
Concrete component comprising at least one reinforcing element in plastic material of elongated shape having a size greater than the other two, characterized by a length of the reinforcement comparable with the length of the artefact measured in the direction in which the reinforcing element is positioned. The section of the reinforcement is such as to ensure a bending strength sufficient to support its own weight in the process of positioning, and a constant section along the longitudinal direction, so as to allow the manufacturability by extrusion of the reinforcing element.

Keywords
Recycling waste PET, concrete reinforcement, concrete ductility and durability improvement.
