NORDIC VOID PRODUCT OVERVIEW Traditionally, void form is used for installations where there are swelling

NORDIC VOID PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Traditionally, void form is used for installations where there are swelling soils present, to provide temporary support for structural slabs until the concrete is self-supporting on the piles, caissons or grade beams.

The theory is that over time, the structural integrity of the void would dissipate, leaving a gap between the foundation and the soil. This gap is to allow the soil to expand into the void space due to moisture or frost heave without imparting uplift stress on the foundation to reduce the risk of causing damage during swell/frost events.

However, over a 50 year design period, natural movement of both soil and moisture allows them to migrate into the void cavity, leaving the foundation susceptible to damage due to frost heave and/or moisture swell.

Nordic Void is designed to resist permanent deformation and bio-degradation. It acts as a ‘cushion’ to absorb soil movement and prevent uplift

pressure from acting on the foundation/slab. It recovers to ensure that the void space remains filled, preventing unwanted soil and moisture movement.

Load bearing to permit install of rebar and live pour of concrete yet

Compliant to yield to uplift forces.

Consistent - capable of predictable performance across a wide range of ambient temperatures

Resilient to significant deterioration when exposed to bitumen, crude oil and other common organic and polymeric soil contaminants

Lightweight & easy to install: Does not require plywood or poly protective covers reducing material & labour costs.

Environmentally stable: inert, chemically & hydrolytically stable, non-biodegradable, able to resist water saturation, and is recyclable.

EXECUTION

3.1.

MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS

i.

Comply with Norseman Inc’s written recommendations or specifications including product technical bulletins, handling, storage and installation instructions.

3.2.

PREPARATION

i.

For horizontal application as a void form under a subsequent concrete pour, the installation site must be prepared according to the applicable geotechnical and structural engineering specifications including site levelling, compaction, depth at which the void product should be placed considering the thickness of the void product to be used.

3.3.

EXAMINATION

i.

Examine void product and immediately inform the Distributor or Norseman of any defects in writing.

3.4.

INSTALLATION

i.

For both vertical and horizontal void/compressible void medium applications, it is recommended when laying out the void product that all joints of the sheets should be placed as tightly as possible. This will help ensure proper product performance over time.

ii.

Use largest dimensions possible to reduce the number of joints.

iii.

Butt joints tightly and offset perpendicular joints.

iv.

Offset both vertical and horizontal joints on multiple layer applications.

v.

When conditions do not allow for a tight fit of the void form sheets, and the joints have a space larger than ½”, it is recommended smaller pieces of void material be used to fill the space and reduce the gap to a minimum, and/or the joints should be sealed or taped.

vi.

Should void product need to be cut to suit the overall dimensions of the foundation or to install around footings, piles or other forms, the void product can be cut using a reciprocating saw such as a Sawzall. Care should be taken to ensure the cut is perpendicular to the surface of the void, to ensure close fit to abutting void or to the form or obstacle it is being fit against.

vii.

For vertical void/compressible void medium, use of appropriate insulation hangars or anchor fasteners are recommended to secure the void product to the adjacent wall or structure until backfill is in place. Follow the installation recommendations as supplied by the.

viii.

Void product installed as a vertical void/compressible void medium may also be mechanically

fastened to the adjacent wall or structure using lag bolts, concrete fasteners with large fender

style washers, etc., as required.

Be sure to avoid any damage to the structure.

ix.

Follow installation requirements as specified by the architect or engineer for each site and application.

x.

Place void product to cover area and perimeter of the foundation as specified on the structural engineering drawing and/or specification.

Recommended Handling, Storage & Installation of Nordic Void Sheets/Boards Nordic Void Polyolefin Void Form is

Recommended Handling, Storage & Installation of Nordic Void Sheets/Boards

Nordic Void Polyolefin Void Form is a strong, flexible, resilient, water resistant closed cell material designed to protect pile caps, foundations and poured pads from damage due to repeated frost heaves and soil swell.

# 1 Storage Nordic Void sheets should be stored under cover to prevent long term exposure (i.e. any exposure in excess of two weeks) to UV. Nordic Void is a relatively light material so care should also be taken to secure the sheets to prevent any possibility of the effects of high winds which could cause the void to become airborne, causing a potential safety hazard.

#2 Effective Temperature Range Nordic Void has been used successfully in temperatures ranging from -40°F (-40°C) to 140°F (60°C) without significant effect to many of its properties. For installations outside of this temperature range, please consult with your Norseman representative prior to use.

#3 Installation To install Nordic Void the installation site must be prepared according to the applicable geotechnical and structural engineering specifications including site levelling, depth at which the Nordic Void should be placed and the thickness of the Nordic Void sheets to be used.

It is recommended when laying out the Nordic Void sheets that all joints of the sheets should be placed as tightly as possible. This will help ensure proper product performance over time. All Norseman Nordic Void sheets come squared from the factory allowing them to fit closely together. Should individual Nordic Void sheets need to be cut to suit the overall dimensions of the foundation or to install around footings, piles or other forms during the pour, sheets can be cut using a reciprocating saw such as a Sawzall. Care should be taken to ensure the cut is perpendicular to the surface of the void, to ensure close fit to abutting void or to the form or obstacle it is being fit against.

#4 Seams:

When conditions do not allow for a tight fit of the Nordic Void sheets, and the joints have a space larger than ½”, it is recommended smaller pieces of Nordic Void be used to fill the space and reduce the gap to a minimum, and/or the joints should be sealed or taped. There are two main processes which can be used to finish the joint and maintain a tight fit of the Nordic Void sheets.

1. Joints can be finished with a duct style or vapour barrier type tape, such as Tuck Tape Tape Sheathing Tape #205-02. When installing the tape, contact of the tape to the Nordic Void sheet must be made on both sides of the joint to ensure the two sheets are joined. The use of the tape will hold the sheets in place during a concrete pour.

tape will hold the sheets in place during a concrete pour. 2. Joints can be covered

2. Joints can be covered with Norseman Nor-Flex, supplied in ¼” x 6” wide foam rolls in 50 foot lengths. The Nor-Flex can be adhered to the Nordic Void using a heat gun, or adhesives, such as STA'-PUT SPH spray contact adhesive, LePage PL-Acousti-seal construction adhesive or 3M 4693 Plastic Adhesive. For a complete list of adhesives that are compatible with Nordic Void please refer to the attached list.

Section 7 Handling and Storage

STORAGE TEMPERATURE: Max. 160° F (71° C)

PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING, STORAGE AND TRANSPORTATION:

WARNING: This polyethylene foam is made with a flammable hydrocarbon blowing agent, most of which is removed prior to shipment. However, residual flammable vapors may gradually exhaust from the foam during storage, fabrication or use. Avoid close confinement of large foam quantities and sources of ignition near the foam (i.e. smoking, sparks, flames.) Do not store near heating equipment. Heating equipment should be inspected regularly during every heating season to check for pinholes or larger defects in the combustion chamber. Burns readily when exposed to plentiful and hot ignition sources. Use self-contained breathing apparatus in the event of fire.

WARNING: Fabricating operations which cut large numbers of interior foam cells, can release localized amounts of flammable, residual blowing agent. Provide adequate ventilation to avoid the buildup of blowing agent concentration.

WARNING: Transport large quantities of this polyethylene foam in ventilated vehicles. Exercise caution when opening vehicles containing this polyethylene foam to avoid all possible sources of ignition (lit tobacco products, sparks, etc.) near the foam and vehicle.
