CINTEC North America, a leader in the field of structural masonry retrofit strengthening, repair, and preservation, celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2017.
The company recently received the 2016 Construction and Engineering Award for Innovation in Engineering, Research and Development. “CINTEC is proud to receive this award and will do everything in our power to ensure our production and service remains worthy of this high standard,” said Robert Lloyd-Rees, C.O.O. of CINTEC North America in a company release. “We are excited to begin our 25th year supplying quality anchoring and strengthening systems.”
The patented Cintec reinforcement and anchoring system involves injecting a proprietary cementitious fluid grout into an anchor surrounded by a fabric sock, which has already been placed in an oversized drilled hole. The reinforcement system’s ingenuity lies in its versatility. Drawing on decades of experience and testing, its designers can customize it to any specification.
Cintec’s engineered solution reinforces an array of materials including: stone, concrete, clay, terra cotta, adobe, and even timber. It can be used under water and in weak substrates.
