Grouts & Anchoring
Grouting and Fixing
Grout mortars are free-flowing, high-strength cement or synthetic resin-based mortars, used for filling of voids under machines and other structural elements as well as for the grouting of anchors. Sika can provide all technologies of grouting materials for specifc application on job sites.
Epoxy based grout and anchor products are suitable in selected applications, e.g. for high strength bearing areas, early flexural and compressive strength, dynamic loading, etc.
Cement based grouting products are suitable for different fixing and bedding applications as manchinery bases, bearing plates, steel frames, etc.
Sika has been the key supplier of the German Railways for a range of coatings, sealants and adhesives for more than 100 years. The flexible grouts of the Icosit® KC 300 range have won worldwide renown for tailor made, long lasting direct fixation of rails to solid substrates, i.e. concrete and steel. They are incorporated in a variety of trackwork designs, in discrete and continuous fixation, embedded/floating rail, lawn track, for railway, light rail, tram and crane track installations.
Sika provides design and technical assistance to consultants, operators and contractors for optimum and innovative trackwork solutions under a wide variety of conditions of exposure, for wheel loads ranging from 4 to 75 metric tons.
FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE GROUTS FOR TRACKWORK
These load-bearing, flexible polyurethane grouts of the Icosit® KC 330/Icosit® KC 340 range fulfil 4 main requirements for direct fixation:
- Levelling out inevitable tolerances between rail and concrete or steel substrate
- Highly efficient electrical insulation for prevention of stray current leakage as a safeguarding against signalling malfunction, electrochemical corrosion and data transfer interference
- Resilient intermediate layer for optimum reduction of noise and vibration transmission, i.e. vibration damping, cast-in-situ after alignment to eliminate any point loads
- Powerful adhesive for added safety and maximum performance
Sika® AnchorFix-1 adhesive anchoring system has been specially formulated as a high-performance, two component adhesive anchor system for threaded and reinforcing bars in uncracked concrete.
