MEHABIT – the standard type
... is a highly resilient, dust-free insulating and levelling fill as standard.
It primarily consists of the ligneous stalk of the hemp plant, the so-called hemp hurd, which is impregnated using a solvent-free bitumen film that is also used for drinking water.
This bitumen impregnation fulfils two functions: it provides the hemp with natural protection in line with construction- specific requirements, while also creating an adhesive effect that enables the material to set easily following installation (it can be walked on with caution).
Due to the increased pressure load of the complete floor construction, the fill compacts on its own to form a pressure- resistant insulating board and thereby easily complies with the „bound form“ requirement of 18560-2. MEHABIT is therefore ideally suited to floors subjected to heavy strain (children‘s rooms, corridors).
Field of application
- Height compensation in concrete or wooden beam floors, as a substructure under dry, wet and mastic asphalt floor screeds.
- Stable filling and covering of gaps and pipeline bundles.
Protection from moisture
- MEHABIT should only be installed on a dry subgrade; all concrete layers in direct contact with the ground must be insulated against rising damp.
|High stability through bound form|
|Elongated granulate form (does not roll away)|
|Hemp = solid material that is not artifi cially expanded.
Because there is no trituration, stability is guaranteed
|Impregnation has an adhesive effect.
