Thousands of buildings in Southern California are in need of seismic strengthening. Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer and E-Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer are advance composite materials ideally manufactured with seismic reinforcing in mind. Seismic upgrades are one of the most common FRP applications.
In an era of ever increasing security FRP applications are being used by government, military and others to offer blast mitigation from either unintentional or intentional blast forces.
Concrete, concrete beams and concrete slabs can undergo tremendous forces as ground settles and buildings age. Stress cracks can develop undermining the structural integrity. FRP is used to strengthen concrete that is unsound, damaged or otherwise compromised by ground movement, fire, age or other forces.

VaLetto Construction Corporation
VaLetto also performs concrete restoration/reinforcing in the complex marine environments. Concrete damage can result from corrosion to existing reinforcement due to exposure to the elements, water or excessive use. The damaged concrete is demolished and repaired per ACI standards. Damaged steel reinforcing can be replaced using an FRP system designed to subsidize the lost steel cross section.
