Innovation: Dyckerhoff Flüssigboden (“fluid soil”)

Dyckerhoff Flüssigboden (“fluid soil”) is an easy-to-install, erosion-resistant alternative to conventional bedding materials. Its temporarily high flowability and adjustable self-compacting properties make this material the perfect choice for areas that are difficult to access or consolidate. Dyckerhoff Flüssigboden surrounds pipes or cables like a collar. It can thus be fully loaded soon after installation and retains a highly stable volume over time, making pipe fracture or dangerous settlement of the road pavement a thing of the past. Its use makes it possible to also optimize the layout...
