Defying common understanding of mortar everyday, FLOW-TAC, our original in-house developed Air Mortar product is fully strength adjustable and pumpable to more than 2000m under pressurized conditions.
About Air Mortar
Air Mortar is mixed mortar, consisting of foamed bubble combined with raw slurry mortar.
Basically consisting of cement, clay-based fine aggregate, water and foaming agents etc. The strength of the Air Mortar can be fine-tuned to suit a wide range of situations using various additives.
FLOW-TAC Air Mortar developed TAC has dramatically improved clay Air Mortar by using Bentonite. This adaptation has allowed TAC to give the mortar liquidity and stability beyond what was thought possible years ago. The aeration within FLOW-TAC Air Mortar are extremely strong,
・fine enabling a high level of fluidity(Flow value is high)
・a very low level of material bleeding within the mortar pre-setting.
Because of these main features, FLOW-TAC can perfectly fill up annular shield gaps and are able to be pressurized fed to the gap even when there is 2000m or more between the plant and the gap. By utilizing a further additive, TAC-FLOW AID, we are proud to be able to pump and unprecedented 3500m direct from plant to injection site.
TAC-FLOW is multi-use: Shield tunnel annular gap grout injection, and void-filling for mountain tunnels, revetments and building foundations.
