Casta Smart-Dowel is a corrosion-free load transfer system that extends life while lowering maintenance and boosting whole-life cost savings.
If you are an engineer looking for a risk free dowel in corrosive applications, look no further than Smart-Dowel GFRP Systems
- Replace steel dowels with corrosion free Smart-Dowel
- High sheer giving superior load transfer performance.
- GFRP (Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer)
How it works
Extends life through a corrosion-free joint system reducing maintenance and increasing whole-of-life cost savings.
Casta Smart-Dowel is a Glass Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (GFRP), corrosion free bar used in slabs and other applications offering superior sheer and load transfer performance while providing a resistance against corrosion.
Smart-Dowel are an exceptional alternative to galvanised steel bars and provide engineers and specifiers an innovative safe option that not only provides unparalleled corrosion resistance but also superior strength and long term performance.
- Non-Corrosive with high chemical resistance.
- Non-conductive and electro-magnetically neutral
- Non-magnetic – no interference with sensitive equipment
- Lightweight: ¼ the weight of steel
- Maintains good thermal insulation values
- No thermal cycling impact. Thermal expansion coefficient closer to concrete than steel. Ideal for areas with extreme temperature cycles.
- Over 100 years retention of strength and modulus in high pH environments
- Low Environmental Impact. Consumes approximately 85% the embodied energy of steel
Ideal for Coastal & Marine Applications, Underwater structures, Foundations, Bridge decks and approach slabs, Roads and infrastructure, Chemical Facilities and General hardstands and slabs.
Perfect replacement for steel galvanised dowel systems
