MC-Ballastbond 80 receives German railways approval

Apr 27, 2016

With increasing speed, ever greater traffic loads and higher utilisation levels, railway tracks and their roadbed courses are inevitably going to weaken and become damaged with time, making repair, refurbishment and track renewal unavoidable. Particularly in the case of ballast roadbeds, which dominate as the base course in intercity rail services, heavy train loads can lead to permanent way displacement, jeopardising the stability of the track panels and of the trains themselves. With MC-Ballastbond, permanent way stability can be quickly and durably restored and reinforced. The product system has been especially developed for consolidating aggregate and securing ballast areas and ballast beds during track construction work and has been in successful service for many years around the world.
MC-Ballastbond 80 for the durable consolidation of ballast roadbeds

MC-Ballastbond 80 is generally suited to the consolidation and durable reinforcement of ballast roadbeds and base courses used for track and road construction. The organomineral-based, low-viscosity resin penetrates into the aggregate bed without adversely affecting the drainage effect of the ballast, producing a stabilising bond. MC-Ballastbond 80 reaches high strength values within a short time and is quickly loadable, resulting in a reduction in “possession intervals” (imposed train-free periods) compared to other measures. The reaction product offers a high level of fire safety (building material class B1 to DIN 4102). It is also environmentally compatible, meeting in full the criteria of Germany’s UBA (Federal Environmental Agency) for repair systems in contact with potable water. MC-Ballastbond 80 consists of two components which, once mated, cure to form a solid resin within a short time. Because of the rapid reaction, the components are directly mixed in the reservoir of the injection pump. The two-component MC-I 700 injection pump is ideal for such applications.
