Internal concrete 70,000 square metres of 140 thick fibre reinforced 40 mpa concrete with 3,500 metres of Finnjoint Armoured Edge Joints and saw cuts with 10mm plate dowels at 600 mm centres, Each pour is 160 cubic metres and poured on a daily basis.
Traditional armour joints need sealant, initial sealant cost on this project would have been $35k plus normally 12 months later because of shrinkage, resealing these joint could be 50k plus (as concrete shrinks for 5 or more years), maintenance can be very expensive for asset owners!
After 6 weeks checking the levels of the slab and joints with a dumpy level No Curling as the joints are sealed from the time concrete is poured, spreading the hydration evenly across the slab not mainly at the open joints.
Finnjoint™ Armoured Construction Joint. In this video you will see us test the FinnJoint to the point where the FinnJoint is still working as a waterproof construction joint long after the concrete lost its integrity
