Simpson Strong-Tie Brings Code-Listed, Project-Tested Solutions to World of Concrete Exhibition and Trade Show in Las Vegas

Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, will bring a full suite of code-listed, solution-driven innovations to the World of Concrete June 8–10 in Las Vegas, NV.

Engineered to boost efficiency and productivity while meeting common jobsite challenges for concrete and masonry contractors, the Simpson Strong-Tie Booth N2737 will feature a new, easy-to-saturate 44-oz. flat-weave carbon FRP fabric; the CI family of crack injection epoxies; and the complete line of Titen® concrete and masonry screw anchoring solutions.

World of Concrete is the construction industry’s largest international event for concrete and masonry contractors. More than 60,000 industry professionals annually attend the conference and tradeshow, which features approximately 1,500 exhibiting companies and occupies more than 700,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor exhibit space.

“With steady growth in construction spending and the promise of big infrastructure projects on the horizon, World of Concrete provides the perfect opportunity for the concrete construction industry to connect and discover new innovations and ideas,” says Simpson Strong-Tie Vice President of Concrete Construction Products, Ryan Kaelin. “We’re excited to be back to showcase a variety of our code-listed solutions and real-world project successes.”

Structural repair and reinforcement, anchoring, and FRP systems at Simpson Strong-Tie Booth N2737 include the following:

  • 44-oz. CSS-CUCF44F is an easy-to-saturate carbon FRP fabric featuring new flat-weave fiber technology engineered to saturate as efficiently and quickly as lighter fabrics, significantly reducing installation time. Simpson Strong-Tie has the only 44-oz. carbon fabric available, which is the heaviest code-listed option and provides contractors with a solution that requires fewer fabric layers for reduced labor costs, consistent quality control, and more successful inspection rates.
  • The fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix combines a high-performance sprayable mortar with a carbon-fiber grid to create a thin structural layer that won’t add significant weight or volume to the existing structure. We’ll show how FRCM was employed to restore the historic Napa County Courthouse after the 2014 earthquake.
  • The CI family of crack injection epoxies have been tested to the latest ASTM standards and feature an improved viscosity range, accelerated cure times, and the ability to be installed at temperatures between 40°F and 110°F. Simpson Strong-Tie has also upgraded its entire suite of dispensing tools and injection systems to help make applications fast, easy, and clean for contractors on the move.
  • The complete Titen® family of concrete and masonry screw anchoring solutions includes a broad range of versatile, high-performance products designed for strength and reliability with fast and easy installation. Backed by rigorous testing and a longstanding legacy of expert engineering, Titen screw anchors provide builders with code-compliant anchors that can be installed in a wide range of exterior and corrosive environments.

In addition to product innovations, Simpson Strong-Tie will also showcase real-world project examples of its concrete repair and strengthening solutions, including a collaboration with ZFA Structural Engineers and Pullman Repair and Restoration to repair, restore, and seismically retrofit the historic Napa County Courthouse damaged by the South Napa earthquake.
