Our company has developed an exceptional system for additional reinforcement of structures - LETOXIT SILOSYST. This system consists of carbon lamellas (bands) impregnated with epoxy resin and two-component thixotropic adhesive Letoxit LH 145, which harden under normal temperatures.

Building and construction - thanks to exceptional mechanical qualities of the carbon fibres, it is possible to use these carbon bands to reinforce concrete or other building structures, or increase the capacity load of building structures (e.g. increase the capacity load of floors for the installation of new production machines, increase the bearing capacity of ceilings in underground garages, balcony renovations) or to refurbish older concrete objects such as bridges or buildings.
Apart from concrete structures, the system is used for additional reinforcement of metal or wooden structures in cases of increased load, damage to the structure and is used to improve the qualities of the existing structure.
Aviation - the LETOXIT SILOSYST system has been successfully used in the aviation sector as well, where its exceptional mechanical qualities are used for example in reinforcement of the wing main spar or reinforcement of the primary aircraft structure.
