Mapei UK has launched a new product for use in the professional construction industry, Mapemortar HB R3. Produced at Mapei’s West Midlands manufacturing centre, Mapemortar HB R3 is a medium strength (R3), high build repair mortar, which is suitable for use on overhead and vertical repairs including balconies, culverts and tunnel linings.
This video illustrates a series of systems offered by Mapei to carry out long-lasting repair work on road viaducts. The work phases described cover the following areas in particular:
-WATERPROOFING the FOUNDATION PLINTH of a PILE with bitumen emulsion and then protecting the plinth with a polyethylene membrane;
-REPAIR WORK on a PILE by applying galvanic cathodic protection for the steel reinforcement, reintegrating deteriorated areas of the pile with fibre-reinforced, sulphate-resistant thixotropic mortar and then protecting the pile with an elastic cementitious membrane;
-REPAIR WORK on a SUPPORT BLOCK using high strength epoxy mortar;
-REPAIR WORK on a JOINT by reconstructing the support bed with screed-consistency, high strength epoxy mortar before inserting a new reinforced rubber joint and fastening the joint in position with fluid epoxy resin containing special fillers;
-REPAIR WORK on a KERB using mortar reinforced with polymer fibres with work-hardening properties;
-WATERPROOFING the viaduct DECK with a hybrid polyurea-based waterproofing system.
