Post-tensioned floor and Innerseal treatment – Pergine (TN)

The industrial flooring and the Innerseal treatment have recently been completed at the “citadel” for small fruits, the new production area (6,000 square meters) of the Sant’Orsola cooperative in Cirè, along the Valsugana state road.

The area of ​​the site, hidden almost entirely from hedges to those who pass on the road, is instead clearly visible from the hills of the Fratte and the «Zucàr». And the view already makes an impression, as well as the numbers: the new complex, covers an area of ​​124,705 square meters, the built area is 55,448 square meters, with the remaining 64,677 square meters of agricultural land.

The post-tensioning applied to industrial floors represents the revolution in the sector, the new concept of quality and professionalism.

Medipav is the company that exclusively distributes the post-tensioning, called TENSOSLAB, in Europe, developed with the partnership of leading groups in the production of viplated steel strands (sheathed) and leading companies on the market in the design and application of the post-tensioning to great works (bridges, viaducts, interports, etc.).

Once the realization process was completed with the application of post-tensioning, the surface was finished by Innerseal CONTROLL® treatment, which gave the floor the aesthetic and functional conditions required in the design phase.

Innerseal CONTROLL® treatment actively and deeply penetrates concrete and thus effectively prevents leaks, corrosion of reinforcements and fading of calcium.

In addition to having a waterproofing effect, the Innerseal CONTROLL® treatment eliminates the volatility of powders, expels oil and grease.

Thanks to the ability of CONTROLL® Innerseal to adapt to the materials commonly used in surfaces and other products in concrete, features such as color, texture and appearance remain unaltered. The treatment leaves a clear and natural surface, without stratifications or films.
The advantages of post-tension

• Elimination of joints

• No cracks

• Elimination of the boat

• Cancellation of the difference in level between the edges of the slabs

• Reduction of thicknesses

• High flatness and connection between the plates

• Reduction of maintenance costs

• Greater comfort of use

• Best aesthetic effect

• Control of the entire supply chain (from the production of steel strands to the construction of the flooring)

• Warranty with Postuma Policy

Construction of a floor with a post-tensioned system in Belgium

For some months Medipav has been participating in the construction of a residential building in Belgium, creating the floor with a post-tension system for each floor

the highly specialized personnel took care of supervising the laying of cables, the reinforcement, the casting and the stretching of cables, in order to guarantee a work in a workmanlike manner.

Specifically, the post-light allows, thanks to the possibility of creating structures with wider lights, to obtain buildings with reduced thickness of the slab and at the same time large areas without columns.
The control of deformation and cracking are some of the aspects that the application of cables allows to control effectively, contrary to what happens in traditional reinforced concrete structures.
The post-extension of slabs with non-adhering MEDIPAV cables has been used in various buildings and structures. The system includes stranded strands
individually and locked by anchoring devices.

The advantages:
• Comparing the slabs with traditional concrete slabs, considerable savings in the amount of concrete and steel that
it derives from the balancing of external actions exerted by the cables with consequent reduction of the cross-sections, more streamlined in their conception.
• Reduction of high elastic deformations out of plan compared to traditionally reinforced concrete sections.
• Excellent cracking behavior and consequently good protection of corrosion reinforcement.
• Unaltered operating limit state of the structure, even after considerable accidental overload, as the slots close once the load has been used up.
• Excellent fire resistance of the structure.
• Drastic reduction in the times of use of the formworks. After 2 days from the casting the cables are stretched and the floors can be scrapped on average.
• Campaigns with greater lights and greater architectural flexibility.
• Subjected to operating loads, excellent behavior in terms of deformability and total absence of cracking.
• Greater shear strength obtainable through an appropriate arrangement of the strands.
• Elimination of the capitals at the head of the pillars.

Medipav present at the “WORLD OF CONCRETE-Europe” in Paris

Medipav present at the “WORLD OF CONCRETE-Europe” event held in Paris from 23rd to 28th April 2018, an appointment that sees all the most important companies in the concrete sector exhibit their technical innovations.

For the occasion Medipav will present KOMSOL products for the protection of high-performance concrete and professional waterproofing. Practical demonstration of how to waterproof the concrete with Innerseal:
