VOL-TEC - Expansive profile for broad movement technical joints

VOL-TEC

Expansive profile for the sealed closing of broad movement joints

VOL-TEC is an expansion profile used to hermetically seal wide dilatation joints, achieving water-tightness and seismic isolation. It is composed of high damping SBR/Natural rubber with modular elements and compression plates made of PA6 resin. The profile can be fitted with a pair of strings Ø 10 mm made of hydro-expansive rubber for greater pressure on the contact surfaces.

Where to use it

  • To hermetically seal wide dilatation joints, where perfect water-tightness is required
  • Suitable for structural works made of reinforced concrete, in areas prone to earthquakes and in the presence of water tables

Advantages

  • Allows the two parts connected to the joint to move independently, and the whole guarantees constant pressure between the two parts of the structure, even with movement
  • The pressure of the rubber structure can be adjustable manually, with torque adjustment possible after application
  • Easy testing and inspection of the state of efficiency of the profile
  • the VOL-TEC profile is easy to repair and replace
  • Quick and safe installation, thanks to the complete kit of required elements and preparation of the area
  • The whole guarantees constant pressure between the two parts of the structure, also in case of movement
