Permanently elasticated expansion joints for concrete floors

Also joint profiles for heavy transport loads

The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system is a patented system for joint-free concrete floors. It allows the creation of an invisible and permanently elasticated expansion joints for connecting structures in all types of buildings within the industrial and commercial sectors.

The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system is a patented (DE 100 02 866) floor jointing system which fulfils the special requirements related to heavy traffic usage, hygiene and air cushion transportation.

Concrete floor joint refurbishmentn

Refurbishment of expansion joints in concrete floors incurring minimal effort and without holdup or loss in production

Operational disruptions lead to higher costs. Concerns over holdups and the resulting loss in production lead to the deferral of essential concrete and joint refurbishment.

Advantages at a glance

The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system offers clear advantages in comparison with standard joint profiles.
Less downtime

Fully able to withstand load after just a few hours hardening time. The special procedure used results in the entire Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system installation becoming drivable after ca. 1 hour.

Soundproofing and sound absorption

The soundproofing characteristics of our special jointing material significantly reduce noise, eliminating the transfer of sound to adjacent structures.

Shock and vibration reduction

The Ulbrichfuge® patented jointing compound system enhances the dampening of vibration. Any impact/shock damage, such as vibration of ground conveying equipment, or to vibration sensitive products and to human beings will be minimised significantly.

Highly ductile

The composition of the the Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system and the method of installation result in its optimum ductile properties. It is these properties that make The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system the ideal expansion joint for concrete and screed floors.

Optimised bonding

Excellent adhesion of synthetic liquid material can be achieved on many types of substrate after pre-treating the surface and the application of a bonding agent. The Ulrichfuge® jointing compound system is ideal for many types of flooring in entrances and other similarly frequented areas.

Thermal resistance

The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system is designed for use in a range from - 30°C to + 90° C. Its thermal resistance, even to high temperatures, make it the ideal compound for creating permanently elasticated expansion joints for flooring used in industry.

Weatherproofing

Synthetic liquid material is not sensitive to weathering and shows excellent resistance to hydrolysis, hot air and ozone. The high thermal resistance of the Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound synthetic makes it the perfect choice for concrete and screed industrial and commercial surfaces.

Food safety

The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system is sterile and does not support fungal growth, fulfilling the strict requirements of laboratory, food storage and many other sensitive areas. Building and expansion joints which have been treated with the Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system, are easily cleaned because it enables an even, jointless flooring.

Filling cracks

Cracks can be filled permanently by the application of the Ulbrichfuge® synthetic liquid material. It avoids damp penetration and permeation by aggressive substances, simultaneously protecting the flooring from abrasion and extending its life.

Highly abrasion resistant

and highly durable. Surfaces which are coated with synthetic liquid material are especially resistant to wear when wet. The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system has a long lifespan.

Chemical resistance

Caustic solution and acid-resistant. The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system is largely resistant to de-icing salt solutions and against diluted, non-oxidising acids as well as caustic solutions up to + 40° C.

Water impermeable

and environmentally safe. The Ulbrichfugen® jointing compound system is impermeable to water and provides homogeneous, seamless sealing without any weak areas, therefore, the joint and the surface are protected from penetration of harmful substances.

Design friendly

and almost invisible. No problem with colour matching. The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system can be designed to be almost visually undetectable. Refurbishment of expansion joints in concrete and screed floors is rapidly and easily done without any holdups or operational disruptions.

Heavy traffic loads

The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system is a patented (DE 100 02 866) floor jointing system which fulfils the special requirements related to heavy traffic usage, hygiene and air cushion transportation.

Retro-fitting floor expansion joints? No problem!The Product

The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system installation procedure

The concrete floor is scarifiedto the required depth to allow for the absorption of the synthetic joint compound to be applied later. Subsequently, a backfill cord is inserted and compression block incorporated. After the required curing time, the concrete joint is filled with the appropriate synthetic liquid material. The concrete joint is then filled with a specially formulated unpressurised jointing compound. Finally, the joint surface is ground to the level of the concrete floor, followed by the top sealant.

There are now various projects available as references for the Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound system. For example, experts from the Institut für Fußbodenbau (The Institute for Flooring Construction) have tested the workshop floor at Bombardier-Werk in Hennigsdorf  which has been subject to 5 years of the most demanding usage within the tram and railway carriage building industry. They could verify an outstanding functionality with the minimum of maintenance requirement.

The Ulbrichfuge® jointing compound systemcan also be retro-fitted risk free. There are clear advantages when compared directly with other jointing systems. You remain autonomous with regard to your planning and will be able to equip your building retrospectively with reliable expansion joints.
