New prefabricated joint profiles from MC-Bauchemie

MC-Floor Connect - new joint profile system from MC-Bauchemie

MC-Floor Connect for high-resistance, low-noise floor joints 

Bottrop, 25 November 2015. Conventional floor joint profiles of steel are deployed to resist high wheel loads on concrete floors – as encountered, for example, in car parks, production and storage buildings and in retail facilities. You cannot see them, but you frequently hear them as contact from wheeled traffic invariably gives rise to noise and vibration. Industrial trucks such as forklifts often shake as they pass over such joints, increasing noise levels and even sometimes causing damage to fragile goods on board. Sooner or later, the forklifts and the floor itself experience attrition, with operative health also a concern. Now these problems can all be assigned to the past – with MC-Floor Connect from MC-Bauchemie. These fast, easy-fit prefabricated plastic-concrete profiles create a smooth floor surface, ensuring that wheeled equipment can pass over virtually vibration- and noise-free. In areas with traffic like in multi-storey car parks special profiles offer joint width bridging capability of up to 80 mm. These properties are unmatched in the marketplace.


Tailored shotcrete solutions

Schwarzkopf tunel

Shotcrete is primarily used in tunnel construction, for excavation pit support and embankment consolidation. With admixtures from MC, its properties can be specifically aligned to application requirements, something that was very much needed both in the stabilisation of cuttings during construction of a new railway line through the Spessart region of Bavaria, and for the construction of an entrance tunnel in the Weserbergland region of Germany.


MC-Bauchemie launches new mineral heat-insulation render

New mineral heat-insulation render Oxal TRR
Oxal TRR for the restoration of historical structures and half-timbered buildings in line with heritage rules

Bottrop, 23 September 2015. Insulating listed buildings from the outside is hampered by strict conservation regulations. Generally, the application of thermal in-sulation composites on façades is forbidden. As an alternative, such compounds may be allowed inside, although this too is sub-ject to restrictive heritage rules. It is also very expensive and both time- and space-consuming. An easier option is to use Oxal TRR, the new mineral heat-insulation render from MC-Bauchemie. It can be applied to both external façades and interior surfaces to improve the energy efficiency of listed buildings – without breaking conservation rules.
