Titan™ 218

The Titan™ 218 structural repair system is comprised of a unique, bi-axial carbon fiber fabric, saturated with NRI”s proprietary epoxy system, Titan™-Staturant Epoxy.

The Titan™ 218 carbon fiber is oriented in the 0° / 90° directions with the 0° direction being the primary, continuous fibers. The development of this system was designed to conform to ACI440 standards for nonmetallic composite reinforcing solution of concrete.The Titan™-Staturant Epoxy system is a two-part, 100% solid epoxy system designed for use in a wide variety of environments possessing excellent chemical resistance and high temperature ratings.
