Vetogrout GA514 is a pre-blended powder admixture containing expansive agents which impart controlled expansion in the plastic state whilst minimizing water demand. The material is designed to allow uniform mixing and eliminates unwanted segregation and bleeding.
Vetogrout GA514 is supplied in 24kg Bag.
Yield: Refer to mix design.
The original sealed bag of Vetogrout GA514 has a shelf life of 12 months provided it is stored clear of ground in a dry and shaded place.
For best results, use a mechanically powered grout mixer. Do not use a colloidal impeller mixer if sands/aggregates are being used. To enable the grouting operation to be carried out continuously, it is essential to provide a sufficient mixing capacity and labor on-site. Use a grout holding tank with provision to gently agitate the grout if required.
For a 6kg bag of Vetogrout GA514, add 30 to 35 liters of clean water (depending on the nature of cement) to 100kg of cement to achieve the correct consistency.
Accurately measure the water into the mixer. Slowly add the Vetogrout GA514 bag’s total contents with the cement and mix continuously for 5 minutes. This will ensure that the grout has a smooth, even consistency.
Place Vetogrout GA514 mix within 20 minutes of mixing in annular gaps of up to 60mm thick. If needed, use a screw feeding pump such as a PFT ZP3 booster pump or equivalent.
Use standard curing practices as per ACI recommendation to cure any exposed surfaces of the placed mix but use a curing compound such as Vetocure XT425.
Clean tools and equipment with fresh water. Remove hardened material mechanically.
Several hours before grouting, the area should be flooded with fresh water. Immediately before grouting takes place, remove any free water.
Thoroughly clean all cable ducts. Flush all ducts formed without metal sheaths with water; after that, remove all surplus water. Seal cable anchorages before the duct grouting are carried out.
Vetogrout GA514 is tested using 50 mm cubes. The mixture design shall be based on the following to achieve the required results:
All sampling procedures for Vetogrout GA514 are to be conducted within the confines of a temperature-controlled laboratory. The reactive agents within Vetogrout GA514 do not permit site sampling and transport. The procedure for sampling is to be as follows:
Vetogrout GA514 is alkaline and should not come into contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of dust during mixing. Gloves, goggles and dust mask should be worn. If contact with skin occurs, wash with water. Splashes to eyes should be washed immediately with plenty of clean water and medical advice sought. Vetogrout GA514 is non-flammable.
