ICC-ES Certification

Our Unique Repair System is ICC-ES Certified

QuakeWrap fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) repair products and systems have been independently tested by ICC-ES and certified for 2021 international building codes as well as other U.S. building codes.

QuakeWrap FRP systems – the leading engineered FRP repair and strengthening composites in the industry – have ESR-3605 certification from the International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), providing independent verification that QuakeWrap FRP products meet or exceed International Building Code (IBC) for 2021, as well as other municipal building codes.

ICC-ES has thoroughly examined QuakeWrap's products, test reports, engineering calculations, quality control methods and other factors to verify these unique composite repair systems are code-compliant and ready for specification.

QuakeWrap repair systems have always used the highest quality carbon and glass fabrics and resins, and often exceed industry standards and most building codes… added advantages that are passed directly to the customer.

Advantages of QuakeWrap repair products over other ICC certified products

  • QuakeWrap® products are non-HAZMAT and ready for immediate transportation by ground, sea or air
  • QuakeWrap® resins are non-corrosive and can be economically stored or shipped
  • QuakeWrap® products have been tested in actual field conditions; data presented by other manufacturers are misleading since they require post curing at high temperatures – a task that cannot be performed in the field.
  • QuakeWrap’s patent-protected FRP solutions – including the highly durable PileMedic® system for bridge column and marine pile repair; the adaptive StifPipe® system for sewers, storm drains, and other large conveyance repairs; and the SPiRe® Sheet Pile Repair system for repairing corroded seawalls and industrial bulkheads -- represent extraordinary repair advantages for contactors and engineers. These products are exceptionally strong, versatile, lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and work equally well on concrete, masonry, steel or timber.

    “We extend an invitation to all design engineers to use our unique wet layup products not only for their IBC-compliant repair projects, but for any other structural rehab and strengthening where more corrosion control and quality repair advantages are needed.” says QuakeWrap President/CEO Prof. Mo Ehsani, PE, SE, Ph.D.

    ICC-ES ESR-3605, issued February 2021, provides assurance to building code officials seeking approval for use of QuakeWrap fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite systems under their codes. The report confirms QuakeWrap compliance with the 2021 International Building Code (IBC), as well the 2018 and 2015 IBC codes. ESR-3605 also confirms compliance with 2020 Los Angeles Building Code (LABC), the 2019 California Building Code (CBC), and the 2020 and 2017 Florida Building Codes.
