ABE Dura.Grout GP is a ready-for-use (merely add water) Portland cement-based grouting compound. It contains graded siliceous aggregate and chemical reagents which prevent shrinkage during curing.
Consistency range at PLASTIC or POURABLE consistency to suit the following typical applications:
BEDDING: column base plates, steel support structures.
GROUTING: non-critical caulking anchor bolts, top steel.
REPAIRING: cavities in concrete in non-critical areas.
• Quickly develops placeable consistency.
• Adjust consistency to suit application requirements
• Remains cohesive and does not segregate or bleed
All water contents apply to 25 kg pockets of dura.®grout GP. Water quantities must be adjusted to match size of mix. Mixes must always use complete pockets, but more than one pocket may be used. Mixing of grout may be carried out in a pan mixer, drum mixer or by using a slow-speed heavy duty electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle for mixing mortars. Using the standard 25kg pocket of grout, add 3.5 L of clean water to the mixing vessel. While stirring continuously, add the dry powder until the mixture is free from lumps. Then add further water (1 L), continue mixing until a smooth, creamy consistency is obtained. Total mixing time should be approximately three minutes.
The mixed grout should be poured into the cavity at one point only to avoid entrapping air. For best results, mixed grout should be poured within 10 minutes of mixing and definitely within 30 minutes. If grout is not placed immediately after mixing, keep the material agitated. Grouting mixture more than 30 minutes old must be discarded. dura.®grout GP can be compacted by gentle rodding or punning. Do not re-temper the grout, should the consistency drop due to time lapse, then discard the mix and mix a fresh batch of product.
