ENVIROBED: The alternative to resin-based mortars

Posted: Friday 2nd July 2010

There are many influencing factors towards ironwork failure: 1) Larger carriers and payloads (44 tonne on 6 axle have been permitted since 1994), 2) a high proportion of ironwork is installed in wheel tracks in carriageways, 3) traffic volume has increased by over 135% in the last 30 years and continues to rise, and 4) changes in cover frame materials.

Ultracrete ENVIROBED is a revolutionary, next generation, environmentally friendly bedding mortar alternative to resin-based materials. It is supplied as a two-component system which contains a blend of special cements, polymer graded aggregates and recycled glass.

The combined components provide a high performance mortar, which can accommodate depths of 10-50mm in one pass. If necessary, greater depths can be achieved by using a layer-upon-layer method.

Envirobed can more than meet today’s tough highway demands, providing a simple to use performance specification product, aiding sustainability and environmental targets.
