InfraCore® technology

Almost every bridge, lock bridge and bridge deck that we construct and install is equipped with the InfraCore® Inside. A patented technology that makes it possible to produce FRP panels, that can withstand heavy loads, in an industrial way. With this invention, FiberCore Europe paved the way in 2008 for fiber-reinforced polymer structures in construction & infrastructure.

No delamination or cracking

InfraCore® technology prevents delamination and cracking, a known problem with FRP support structures. The solution was found in a continuous structural connection of glass fibers (or carbon fibers) between the top and bottom of the structure. The fiberglass mats run from the upper skin through body plates to the lower skin. And by placing the fibers in all directions, resin-dominated fracture surfaces are avoided. The construction contains no internal glues or bolted connections. The strength comes entirely from the fibers, which themselves are stronger than steel.

Tested for load, damage and fatigue

The InfraCore® technology has been tested for a combination of stress, impact damage and fatigue. This shows that no delamination can occur due to fatigue in damaged plates. Think of impact load, an accident or a fault in the construction. All constructions with InfraCore® Inside comply with CUR 96 and Eurocodes.

Discover our sustainable constructions with InfraCore® Inside

Since 2008 we have already realized more than 900 prefab constructions with the InfraCore® technology. Bridges, lock gates and bridge decks. In the Netherlands, Europe and far beyond.
