Concrete is the most used construction material in building industry worldwide, but is also the main driver for CO²-emissions. Textile concrete is clearly superior to classic reinforced concrete both economically and functionally. Textile concrete products are lighter and thinner, requiring up to 80% less concrete compared to classic reinforced concrete due to the corrosion-free nature of textile reinforcements.

Production technologies for textile reinforced concrete - today and tomorrow

Typical production technologies and textile reinforcements will be shown as well as their dependencies on the intended application. An outlook on future production technologies, as 3D-printing of concrete and fiber reinforcements, will be given.

Non-metallic reinforcement for sustainable concrete applications

By using carbon-, glass or basalt-reinforcements concrete structures can be designed much more slender, durable and ressource-saving than standard steel-reinforced constructions. The presentation shows what kind of reinforcements are on the market already, which are future possibilites as well as obstacles in todays building industry.

Eco-system for Textile Reinforced Concrete applications in the Building and Construction Sector in India and South East Asia

India and many South East Asian countries face serious challenges with corrosion of conventional reinforcement due to the tropical climate. Further on non-existance of proper building code for integration of textiles as reinforcements is an operational challenge. At Raina Industries, the constant endevour is to create an eco-system for the application of this new material in facades, street furniture, modular components and marine applications.
