Basilisk ER7 agent, een zelfherstellende reparatie vloeistof voor scheuren op basis van bacteriën

Fortius is fier te mogen aankondigen dat we het product Basilisk kunnen voorstellen op de Belgische markt. Basilisk werd ontwikkeld aan de Technische Universiteit (TU) Delft.

Basilisk ER7 agent is een zelfherstellende reparatie vloeistof op basis van bacteriën. De bacteriën, die in de vloeistof aanwezig zijn, worden in de scheuren aangebracht (door opgieten), groeien zodra ze in contact komen met water en vormen kalksteen. Dit zorgt er dan voor dat de scheurtjes in het beton gedicht worden door de gevormde kalk en voorkomt dat water of vocht nog bij de wapening kan komen. Dit verzekert de duurzaamheid van de constructie.

Dit product is ideaal voor waterafdichting of opvullen van scheuren (tot 0.8 mm) in parkingdekken, vloerplaten, tanks, brugdekken, etc. Op één dag kan een oppervlakte van 6000 m² behandeld worden.

Op de Concrete Day 2016 toont Fortius de kathodische bescherming systemen, glasvezel wapening staven, opgelijmde wapeningen op basis van koolstof vezels en het nieuwe zelfherstellend, scheurdichtend product Basilisk ER7.

Vault/wall consolidation of Sint Donatus Tower

The Sint Donatus tower in the citypark of Leuven, was part of medieval city walls and was built in 1150. This tower will be transformed into a touristic attraction in the park.

Triconsult, a specialised engineering consultant was called in to advise on the stability and restoration of the tower. Aslan 100 rebars were specified to consolidate the stone blocks of the walls/vault of the tower and to anchor the walls together. Horizontally ,the Aslan 100 GFRP rebars were positioned into the joints and also drilled in vertically. They were used in combination with AFRP-masonry mesh to create a ringbeam to take the horizontal forces of the vault.

Contractor DENYS NV of Gent rebuilt the vault and the walls.

GFRP rebars for renewal of roof – domes of Cathedral in Tenerife

The restoration project of San Cristobal de La Laguna Cathedral, in the island of Tenerife used Aslan 100 in the ribs, beams and columns of the roof . This Cathedral was built in the early 1900 and one of the first Spanish projects to use concrete as structural material and the adverse climate conditions in the zone caused, along the years, a considerable damage in the whole roof.

After being closed to the public for 12 years, in 2011 it was finally decided to undertake the complete substitution of all the domes and vaults of the temple, with the determination to use an innovative mix of fiber-reinforced concrete and GFRP rebars for the project in its entirety, avoiding further corrosion problems.

Architect José Miguel Márquez and CESMA Engineers were commissioned to develop the replacement project, which had to respect the initial state and spirit of The Cathedral while fitting in a tight budget.

The 22 domes , beams and pillars are all reinforced with the Aslan 100, GFRP rebars of Fortius.
