Murfor 50mm (Roll)
Murfor 50mm (Roll) - Application and Benefits
Description: Murfor 50mm, also known as Murfor I50, is a type of reinforcement used in the adhesive joints of walls to strengthen the structure. It consists of a plastic fabric with 7 steel cords made of galvanized steel. Murfor I50 is suitable for mortar joints with a thickness between 3 and 12 mm and is particularly suitable for interior walls exposed to a dry environment.
Why use Murfor?
- Lintels are used for openings for windows or door frames. Tensions occur around these openings and at the installation of lintels that can cause cracks. By applying 2 layers of Murfor at the bottom and top of the adhesive, it will take over the tension.
Floors and Beams:
- Walls that are loaded with beam supports or on which a concrete floor rests may show cracks. Applying Murfor in at least three underlying layers prevents crack formation in these situations.
- Partition walls placed on a floor can show cracks due to large deflections of the floor. To prevent cracking, Murfor should be applied every 2 layers and the wall should not be placed directly on the first floor. It is advisable to first apply a strip of DPC foil.
- By applying Murfor to long walls, the distances between expansion joints can be increased, and in some cases an expansion joint is not even necessary. However, it is always recommended to consult a structural engineer.
The use of Murfor I50 contributes to a durable and crack-free construction, especially in situations where tensions and cracks often occur. Consulting a professional structural engineer is strongly recommended for specific applications.
