Primary Functions of Bedding Mortars

Requirements of aBedding MortarThe most important requirement for a beddingmortar which is intended to transfer loads tothe foundation, be it concrete, brickwork ormasonry, is for it to provide complete andpermanent filling of the space. Plain mortars,consisting of cement, aggregate and water,do not have such characteristics. Several otherproperties of the bedding mortar such ascohesiveness, rapid strength build-up,chemical resistance and compatibility with theoperating environment are also important.

For most applications, the space between thefoundation and the ironwork frame, stone slab,masonry block or other component, can bestbe filled by placing the mortar onto thefoundation and then lowering the componentand levelling it.

A plain sand / cement mortar with thisconsistency could be placed in the space andmay develop adequate strength. However,after placement, the simple mortar will losecontact with the component because ofsettlement, shrinkage and bleeding and maynot be able to resist dynamic forces andimpact caused by traffic.

The resultant breakdown of the bedding willcause settlement, misalignment and possiblydanger. To maintain permanent contact withthe component, a bedding mortar must beformulated using special additives withcementitious or resin systems. These mortarshave a high early strength, good EBA (EffectiveBearing Area - which is the actual area ofcontact under a bearing surface), andexcellent dynamic resistance.

Weber bedding mortars are formulated forthe rapid installation of ironwork, streetfurniture, kerbs and paving. These mortarsare designed to cure to high levels ofstrength and resilience, and minimise theroad closure possession times.

Weber has been at the forefront of resinbedding mortar technology in research anddevelopment of highways reinstatementproducts. Weber has been successfully involvedin supplying bedding mortars for over 35 yearsand weber.tec bedding mortar has been widelyused for telecommunications installation on anationwide UK basis for many years.

All weber.cem and weber.tec products areformulated in accordance with the HighwaysAgency Design Manual for Roads and Bridges,Volume 7, Section 2 HD 27/94 and the DesignManual for Roads & Bridges Volume 4, Section2 HA 104/02.

Premature failures of ironwork installations haveshown to be a major factor contributing to thehigh annual maintenance budget of UK roads.

These failures are not in the ironwork, but ratherin substandard support systems, which canlead to rocking frames under traffic loads,noise pollution and even serious accidents.

The reasons for premature failure include thebreakdown of the bedding material underdynamic loads which leads to the ironworkworking loose. Cracking of a traditionalbedding mortar can occur due to:

• Excessive shrinkage of the mortar during installation

• Weak strength sand/cement mortar

• Slow strength gain from a mortar

• Lack of resistance to fatigue and impact

• Differential stiffness between the accesschamber and the surrounding road

• Movement of the ironwork frame underdynamic loading

• Failure of the adhesive mortar bond with sand/cement mortars

Monaghan County Council was experiencing problems withfailure of access chamber covers and frames due to thebreakdown of the bedding material especially in areas of hightraffic density.

The repair of these access chambers is a serious problem due tothe time constraints of working in areas of heavy traffic and theproblems of allowing the bedding material to set. Their traditionalbedding material is a standard sand and cement mix, whichrequires up to 7 days to achieve a full set and has a poor recordof longevity against the constant loading of heavy traffic.

Monaghan County Council used both weber.cem pyrabed andweber.tec bedding mortar to provide a quick return to service forthe covers and frames while also ensuring the longevity of thesystem within the pavement with a return to service of 60 minutesachievable for both products.

The installation of a landing light system required theexcavation of several 100mm wide by 200mm deep trenchesrunning across the main landing strip.

Each 15 metre length of excavated trench needed to bereinstated and open to airport traffic within the 6 hour nightshift allowed to affect the works.

weber.cem pyrabed was selected to provide a workableopen time of 15 minutes allowing sufficient mixed mortar to beplaced and finished within one operation. The mortar wasblended on site with 30% by weight of 10mm aggregate tolimit the exotherm produced during hydration and to providea more economic repair system. An average of 80 linearmeters of trench per shift was reinstated allowing the runwayto remain in service until it was resurfaced one week later.

Tyne Tunnel has suffered over the years from de-icing road saltscausing chloride to attack the concrete road deck. This has ledto reinforcement corrosion and subsequent spalled concrete tothe concrete deck. The strategic nature of the Tyne Tunnelmeant total closure for repairs was not an option. The clientwanted a permanent solution with repairs to be conductedwithin tight possessions of the tunnel

weber.cem pyrapatch, a fast setting pavement repair concrete,was used to reinstate the defective concrete to the road decks.The tight possession times meant the material was required to setfast and gain at least 20 N/mm2 within 3 hours to allow traffickingduring the daytime. The contractor found the material ideal as apermanent solution for road deck repairs within the tunnelsections. weber.cem pyrapatch complies with the HighwaysAgency Specification for Highway Works and is approved fortrunk road pavement repairs as a permanent repair concrete.

Road closures can be costly and disruptive and whenused to install street furniture for urban landscapingschemes. Signs and posts can become dislodged wheninstalled with conventional sand/cement mortar.

weber.tec bedding mortar was used to fix not only newaccess chambers easily and quickly, but was also used tobed lane-barriers, kerbs and all types of street furniture inStoke-on-Trent.

Its rapid-setting properties have found favour with localauthorities to prevent removal of barriers by vandalsduring setting, such as in the fixing down of speed bumps,bollards and kerbs.

A road re-surfacing project required the rapid replacement andinstallation of access chamber frames and gulley grates along a1km stretch of busy B class road linking two heavily trafficked A-roads in Pendeford, Staffs. The removal replacement and roadsurfacing was to take place over a 3 day period.

weber.cem pyrabedmortar was used to bed new access chamberframes onto pre-cut concrete planks. The existing access chamber frameswere removed and the exposed brickwork brushed to remove loosedebris. The concrete planks were bedded at 10mm mortar thickness ontothe existing brickwork. The mortar was allowed to cure for approximately 5 minutes before freshly mixed mortar was laid onto the concreteplanks at 30–50mm thickness to bed the access chamber frame.

After 20 minutes the void surrounding the frame was filled withweber.cem pyrabed at 100mm thickness to leave the top 10mm ofthe access chamber frame exposed. The frame was subjected totraffic 2 hours after completion of the application. Approximately20 frames were replaced over the following 24 hours - after 3 daysthe hot rolled asphalt wearing surface was applied.

Glasgow Airport main runway was nearing the end of its design lifeand strengthening works were required to rebuild runway 05/23.Work involved strengthening the central section for aircraft loadings forthe next 15 years, replacing the airfield lighting system and resurfacingthe runway - all within a tight runway possession between 10:30pmand 05:40am every night. The contractor needed to install newrunway cable ducts and 920 new runway lights within this possession.

weber.cem pyrapatch, a fast setting pavement repair concrete, wasused to install the new lighting ducts along the main runway. The tightpossession times meant the material was required to set fast and gainat least 30 N/mm2 within 3 hours to allow aircraft landings after 06:00hours. The contractor cut chases through the existing runway andused weber.cem pyrapatch to infill around the electrical ducts.

The lighting units were installed using the BAA approved weber.tec bedding mortar, a fast setting resin mortar enabled thecontractor to install the lighting units quickly in temperatures downto 0°C and the lights were then grouted into position withweber.tec grout FG.
