HELIX STEEL AISI 304

Cold-drawn stainless-steel helical bar

Code: RNF.0384

Components: 1

Appearance: Roll

AISI 304 stainless-steel helical rod is cold drawn, with elevated mechanical benefits for reinforcing joints and connections, including through-holes, on masonry, reinforced concrete, arches and vaults. Suited to consolidating structures in seismic areas. Beneficial in conjunction with hydraulic binders (cement and hydraulic lime) and with resinous matrix binders, it particularly facilitates the achievement of physical-mechanical benefits in combination with UNISAN mortar, with products form the REPAR family, GROUT, and with the structural resins of the SYNTECH family.

Characteristics

HELIX STEEL AISI 304 bars are available in a range of diameters: 6, 8, 10 or 12 mm, all characterised by their durability even in aggressive environments, their high tensile and shear strength, and excellent flexibility. Such characteristics make the use of these bars particularly advantageous in combination with hydraulic binders (cement, hydraulic lime), air binders (air lime) and resinous matrix binders. Flexibility, handling and versatility with various binder matrices, permit the realisation of rapid, non-invasive reinforcement operations, being easy to apply and with low installation costs. Very high mechanical physical benefits come when combined with our mortars of the REPAR, GROUT and UNISAN lines and the structural resins of the SYNTECH line.

Consumption

Product to be purchased as needed.

Use fields

Reinforcement operations on concrete and masonry structures. Reinforced pointing of joints. Structural one-sided connections or through-holes crossing the entire section. Helical morphology allows optimal gripping on bricks, mortars, stones and on old walls of historical and cultural interest generally. The durability against atmospheric and environmental conditioning makes the use of HELIX STEEL AISI 304 bars particularly advantageous in the structures affected by the presence of aggressive soluble salts (sulphates, nitrates, phosphates).

Preparation of supports

Reinforced pointing of joints:
Deep stripping of joints can ensure the placement of the bar at a depth of a few centimetres from the surface. To remove any loose and crumbly parts (stone, bricks, enticing mortar, etc.). Cleaning and saturation of the substrate with pressure washing. To remove any saline efflorescence by brushing or sandblasting.
Connections on masonry, concrete, arches and vaults:
Make sure that there are no loose or crumbly parts on the substrate. Stripping of mortar joints. Cleaning and saturation of the substrate with pressure washing. To remove any saline efflorescence by brushing or sandblasting.

Use method

Reinforced pointing of joints:
Reinforced pointing of masonry joints by filling part of the joint profile with an initial layer of UNISAN fibre-reinforced composite mortar (see the data sheet), then on the mortar whilst still wet, inserting the HELIX STEEL AISI 304 bar before covering with a final layer of UNISAN mortar. Press the mortar inside the joint, being sure to press well until totally full and flush with the wall. The temperature of the substrate must be between +5° and +35° C.
Connections on masonry, concrete, arches and vaults:
After carefully preparing the substrate and before applying the first layer of structural mortar (lime- or cement-based depending on the type of operation), wet with water at low pressure until complete saturation, bearing in mind that a lack of saturation may prevent adhesion and cause cracking in the mortar. If necessary, apply a rough coat of UNTERSANA mortar. Proceed with creating holes of a suitable diameter and inclination (at 45° if the operation is undertaken only on one side of the structural element). Before they are bent in anticipation of the mesh, the connectors emerge from the substrate by at least 10–15 centimetres from flush with the wall. Apply an initial coat of UNISAN fibre-reinforced composite mortar (see the technical data sheet) by hand (with stainless steel trowel or putty knife) or with a plastering machine to achieve a thickness of about 1.5 centimetres, leaving the surface sufficiently rough to facilitate the adhesion of the subsequent layer. Alternatively, depending on the structural requirements, mortars of the REPAR line can be used. Place the primed alkaline-resistant fibreglass mesh of the ARMAGLASS STUCTURA line (see the technical data sheet of the selected product), placing it on the still-fresh mortar by passing the HELIX STEEL AISI 304 connector between the bars of the mesh. After bending the connector, restraining the mesh, apply a second finishing layer of mortar (UNISAN or REPAR) at a thickness of about 1.5 centimetres.
