Nine tunnels altogether with a total length of 27 kilometers have been built over the 89 km long rail route between Nuremberg and Munich , including six tunnels using the tunnel driving method and three tunnels using the cut-and-cover method. Injection tubes were installed in the construction joints during the tunnel construction. These were injected with PU Injection Resin WEBAC®1405 tested in accordance with ZTV-Ing and RiLi SIB upon completion of the construction work.
In some areas of the construction joints, rock pockets were noticed during the construction which were successfully filled and sealed. The construction joints were then patched in order to prevent the PU Injection Resin WEBAC®1405 from flowing out of the area of these weak points in an uncontrolled manner. Great demands were made on the patching material. As any subsequent removal of the material would be very time-consuming and costintensive, it must withstand the enormous pull caused by trains passing by at over 300 km/h.
This requires an extremely high adhesive tensile strength also on damp and wet surfaces. The high-grade Epoxy Putty WEBAC®4525 which is characterized by its high adhesive tensile strength of over 5 N/mm˛ fulfills this requirement. Thanks to its ductile nature WEBAC®4525 proved to be the ideal patching material not only in terms of technical properties but also regarding its user-friendliness. PU Injection Resin WEBAC®155 and PU Injection Resin WEBAC®1405 were used for crack repairs in accordance with ZTV-Ing.
