Expansion Joints and Sublime® Insulated Limecrete Floor

Tŷ-Mawr ‌‌ posted this on 3 May 2018

Our research has suggested that the considerations applicable to cementitious concrete with regard to expansion joints are not applicable to lime-based concretes. Hydraulic Lime generates little heat during the initial chemical hydraulic set and limecrete has a good flexural strength to compressive strength ratio. These properties mean that huge savings can be made in terms of the labour and equipment usually required to fabricate dowelled and induced contraction joints in cement concrete ground bearing slab.
