MICRO GOLD FCC
Micro-concrete reinforced with synthetic fibers for structural reinforcement and seismic retrofit
Micro Gold FCC is a pre-mixed mortar reinforced with synthetic fibers developed for seismic retrofit and the further reinforcement of reinforced concrete structures even without the use of additional metal components. A highly ductile and lasting mortar, pourable, and strongly adhesive to any type of substrate is obtained with the addition of the proper amount of water.
It has a hardening behavior after the post-cracking phase, that is,
it increases the resistance to residual tensile stresses, unlike traditional fiber reinforced structural mortars. This mechanical behavior, characterized by a very high capacity of energy absorption, enables the use of Micro Gold FCC for the seismic retrofit of different reinforced concrete structures adding limited thicknesses ranging from 15 to 45 mm.
MICRO GOLD FCC
Bi-component micro cement reinforced with synthetic fibers.
Approx. 102 Kg units composed of:
- Part A no. 4 bags of dry premix 25 Kg/each
- Part B no. 1 box of synthetic fibers 2 Kg .
PROPERTIES OF THE SYSTEM
- The presence of synthetic fibers in the cement matrix improves durability characteristics.
- Extremely ductile and tenacity higher than that of
traditional fiber-reinforced mortars.
- In the post-cracking phase, the three-dimensional contribution of the fibers increases the ability to absorb energy.
- High mechanical resistance to compression and bending.
- Ability to support loads even after the first cracking occurs.
- Easy and quick application and finishing.
- Resistance to freezing and thawing cycles.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
- Application where good serviceability limit states.
- For use in highly aggressive environments (marine, industrial /chemical), in contact with de-icing salts, sulphate waters and in urban environments
with acid rains and carbonation risk.
- Thin jackets (15-45 mm), even without reinforcement, on reinforced concrete structures, beams, joints, foundations, and walls with a high risk of corrosion.
- Thin load bearing outer layers on slabs made of: brick and cement, wood, beams, bricks, or corrugated sheets.
- Restoration of reinforced concrete beams, pillars.
- Refurbishing of bridge decks.
- Restoration of tunnel crowns.
- Restoration of special pavements (airport runways, etc.).
- Repair of structural elements subject to Stray-Current Corrosion.
