CINTEC Offer Masonry Repair and Anchoring System

CINTEC America of Baltimore, MD, is a world leader in the field of structural masonry retrofit strengthening, repair, and preservation. CINTEC offers the CINTEC Reinforcing Anchor System, a micro cement anchoring and reinforcing technique. The system is used for repair and renovation of existing buildings.

The award-winning Anchor System process begins with an inspection of the structure by a qualified CINTEC engineer. The structure is then modeled in 3D modeling to assess the behavioral probability and the risk inherent to the structure in order to determine the best reinforcement pattern.

At the site, the CINTEC Reinforcing Anchor System, fashioned out of a steel bar enclosed in a mesh fabric sleeve, is inserted into the structure in need of reinforcement. A specially-developed, non-polymer, cement-like grout is then injected into the sleeve under low pressure. The grout then fuses with the mesh, expands, and shapes itself around the steel to fit the space. CINTEC uses state-of-the-art dry or low-volume wet diamond drilling techniques to reduce or even eliminate water damage associated with conventional concrete wet drilling.

Extensive in-situ load testing on various sizes and types of CINTEC anchors has proven that large blast loads can be successfully resisted, and that the CINTEC Reinforcing Anchor System provides a reliable, bottom line defense against explosions.
