Chloride free nonmetallic non-shrink grout
Vetogrout CG518 is a single component cementitious structural and non-shrink grout that is ready to use and only requires the addition of water on site. Once mixed, the product is applied by pouring it into prepared form-work to repair demanding structural repair while being compatible with host concrete. Vetogrout CG518 is composed of a blend of hydraulic cement, carefully selected and graded aggregates, fibers, and special additives to give it its unique properties.

The original sealed bag of Vetogrout CG518 has a shelf life of 12 months, provided it is stored clear of ground in a dry and shaded temperature-controlled place with temperatures between 5ºC - 35ºC.
For best results, use a mechanically powered grout mixer. When using quantities up to 50kg, a slow-speed drill fitted with a high shear mixer is suitable. Larger quantities will require a high shear vane mixer. Do not use a colloidal impeller mixer.
To enable a continuous grouting operation, it essential to provide a sufficient mixing capacity and labor. It may require the use of a grout holding tank with the provision to agitate the grout gently.
Water to be added is 11-13% by weight of the grout and should be accurately measured into the mixer. Slowly add the total content of the Vetogrout CG518 bag, and mix continuously for 5 minutes. This will ensure that the grout has a smooth, even consistency.
At 25ºC, place the grout within 20 minutes of mixing to gain the full benefit of the expansion process. Place Vetogrout CG518 in thicknesses up to 100 mm in a single pour when used as an under-plate grout. For thicker sections, it is necessary to fill out Vetogrout CG518 with 30-50% of the well-graded silt-free aggregate, depending on the thickness, to minimize heat build-up, typically 10mm aggregate is suitable. Any bolt pockets must be grouted before grouting between the substrate and the base plate. Continuous grout flow is essential. Prepare a sufficient grout before starting. Regulate the time taken to pour a batch to the time to prepare the next one. Vetogrout CG518 repair area should not exceed 2.5 m2 in a single application.
Upon completion of the grouting process, exposed areas should be covered well with polyethylene sheets to prevent evaporation of the water in the mix for the first 24 hours; later, the grouted area should be cured using clean potable water twice a day for 3 days. Or you can use the Vetocure XT425 water-based curing compound after placing the grout.
Remove Vetogrout CG518 from tools and equipment with clean water immediately after use. Remove cured material mechanically.
The surface should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt curing compound, etc.
Wet the substrate to achieve a saturated and surface dry condition before the application of Vetogrout CG518.
Erect the hopper system and form-work, make sure that the shuttering is watertight using a polyurethane sealant such as Vetoflex PU780 or a rubber gasket seal. This step is important to ensure no cement paste and water leak from the shuttering. Contact your Saveto’s local representative for more technical information, Saveto’s grouting detailed method statement, and CAD details.
The base plate must be clean and free from oil, grease, or scale. Air pressure relief holes should be provided to allow venting of any isolated high spots.
If leveling shims are used and removed after the grout has hardened, they should be treated with a thin layer of grease.
Unrestrained Surface Area
Generally, the gap width between the perimeter form-work and the plate edge should not exceed 150 mm on the pouring side and 50 mm on the opposite side. It is advisable where practical to have no gap at the flank sides.
Vetogrout CG518 Contains reins 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 CG518 is non-flammable.
