Applications

FAQ
+Can Jabfloor be used in all floor applications?
Yes, Jabfloor and Jabfloor HP are the most versatile insulants for use in all floor specifications and are available in: • A wide range of compressive strengths from 70kPa grade to 500kPa. • A wide range of thicknesses
+What is the maximum weight of wet concrete that Jabfloor can withstand?
Jabfloor 70 has a nominal 1% compression value of 21kPa equating to 2.1 tonnes per m², which means that Jabfloor 70 will accept up to 600mm of wet concrete. Higher grades of Jabfloor will accept heavier weights and greater depths of concrete.
+What is the maximum point load Jabfloor can accommodate?
Jabfloor 70 has a nominal 1% compression value of 21kPa (2.1 tonnes per m²), which is suitable under a 75mm screed in normal domestic situations. The advice of a structural engineer should be sought for any exceptional point loads in the design of the floor.
+Is an expansion gap around the edge of the floor finish required when used above Jabfloor?
No. Jabfloor should be tightly butted against the perimeter walls and insulation strip should be used on all exposed edges. An expansion gap may be necessary around the edge of the floor finish in screed or particleboard overlay.
