FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Florida International University’s splice system for joining structural elements. The advantages of this technology include being flexible, adaptable, durable, corrosion-resistant, being able to be applied to both unforeseen and planned situations, being simple to implement, and performing better in marine environments. Additionally, this system is lightweight, environmentally friendly, and provides the required rapid strength to allow the driving of the pile to continue.
The technology is suitable for splicing precast-prestressed concrete piles for bridge and building foundations, as well as assembling columns and piers. In 2020, the global bridge construction market was worth $857.7 billion and is expected to reach $1,416.9 billion by 2030.
