Plasticized expanding grout admixture
Vetogrout GA516 is supplied as a powder admixture. The material is a combination of a plasticizing agent and a gas-producing expansion medium. The plasticizing agent allows using a reduced water/cement ratio with consequent increased strengths and durability. The expansive medium counteracts the natural settlement and plastic shrinkage of the grout and aids stability and cohesion. Sufficient restrained expansion is developed to ensure a high degree of interfacial contact.
Vetogrout GA516 is supplied in 400gm Tins.
Consumption: 400gm / 50kg Cement bag.
Stated consumption data are for general guidance. Actual consumption depends on the nature of substrate, method of application, and wastage.
The original sealed container of Vetogrout GA516 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. For quantities up to 50kg, a slow-speed drill fitted with a high shear paddle is suitable. Larger quantities will require a high shear vane mixer. It is essential to provide machine mixing capacity and adequate labor to enable a continuous grouting operation. This may require the use of a holding tank with provision for gentle agitation to maintain fluidity. Measure the selected water content accurately in the mixer. Slowly add the cement (and sand if required) and Vetogrout GA516. Mix continuously for 5 minutes, making sure to obtain a smooth and even consistency.
Ensure the areas to be grouted are clean, sound, and then pre-wetted. Keep the unrestrained surface area of the grout to a minimum. Place the grout within 20 minutes of mixing to gain the full benefit of the expansion process. Adopt usual placing or pumping procedures, ensuring a continuous operation.
Upon completing the grouting operation, any exposed areas that are not to be cut back should be thoroughly cured by water application, concur curing membrane, or wet hessian.
Remove grouts mixed with Vetogrout GA516 from tools and equipment with clean water immediately after use.
All contact surfaces must be free from oil, grease, free-standing water, or any loosely adherent material. Cut back concrete surfaces to a sound base and remove all the dust. Blow bolt holes or fixing pockets to clean up any dirt or debris.
Vetogrout GA516 is incompatible with High Alumina Cement.
Vetogrout GA516 Contains resins that may cause sensitization by skin contact. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapor. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, and eye/face protection. Barrier creams provide additional skin protection. Should accidental skin contact occur, remove immediately with a resin-removing cream, followed by soap and water. Do not use solvent. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately. Do not induce vomiting.
Vetogrout GS516 is non-flammable.
