According to German building law, the stability of a structure has generally had to be verified for a working life of 50 years. For reasons of economy and sustainability, however, buildings and civil engineering structures are increasingly designed for a working life of 100 years.
In order to meet these increased requirements, MKT has added the working life of 100 years to the respective European Technical Assessment for bonded fasteners for use in concrete for the Injection Systems VMH and VME plus. For application possibilities and further details for VMH see ETA-17/0716 and for VME plus see ETA-19/0483 or contact MKT Application Engineering.
Thus, it is possible to design these fastening systems not only for a working life of 50 years, but also for 100 years.
The Injection System VMH is a fast curing concrete specialist with a European Technical Assessment for use in cracked and non-cracked concrete and a European Technical Assessment for post-installed rebar connections.
The Injection System VME plus is a slow-curing injection system also with a European Technical Assessment for use in cracked and non-cracked concrete as well as a European Technical Assessment for post-installed rebar connections.
