GTI POST-TENSIONING SYSTEM SELECTION MATRIX

Housing, Building, and Commercial Projects
 
The Post-Tensioning Institute (PTI) and the American Concrete Institute (ACI) have mandated that "tendons used in all applications governed by ACI 318 shall be encapsulated". The intent of this requirement is to maximize the durability of post-tensioning tendons used in all applications governed by ACI 318, regardless of environmental classification. Encapsulated tendons provide additional protection of the prestressing steel regardless of location of the structure or exposure to moisture intrusion from any source. The more rigorous material and fabrication requirements for encapsulated tendons are essential for the long-term durability of post-tensioning tendons. GTI Products are used in slabs, beams, core walls, and lateral resisting frames.
