Technical Information
Product Description

Vetogrout EG340 is a multi-component grout composed of epoxy resin, hardener, and selected aggregates. It is supplied as a pre-weighed pack ready to use on-site that required only mixing to produce a free flow precision grout. Vetogrout EG340 is specially formulated for use where heavy dynamic loads exist, high physical and mechanical properties are required with excellent chemical resistance. Typical uses include rail grouting, crane rails, pile cap treatment, bridge bearings, fixing rock bolts and anchors, cavity filling, and high-speed turbine base grouting.

Advantages
  • Free flow characteristics even in thin layers.
  • Non-Shrink with high adhesion.
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion.
  • Suitable for damp and dry substrates.
  • Suitable for repetitive dynamic and cyclic loads.    
  • Variable fill ratio for optimum flowability and effective bearing area.
  • Excellent chemical resistance.
  • The tropical formulation is suitable for MENA conditions.
  • High ultimate and early strength.
  • Excellent creep resistance and mechanical properties.
  • Wide thickness application range from 10 to 200 mm.

Application Information
Instructions for use

 Mixing

Pour all the contents of the hardener pack into the base container. Mix using a slow-speed power mixer until homogeneous.

Pour all the resultant liquid into a container with a capacity of 20-25 liters. Add all the filler provided for the product. Mix using a slow-speed power mixer for two minutes or until a uniform color is achieved in the grouts.

Placing

The mixed grout should be poured steadily from one side only to eliminate the entrapment of air.

Continuous grout flow is essential. Sufficient grout must be available before starting. Regulate the time it takes to pour a batch to the time taken to prepare the next batch.

Flow Characteristics

The maximum distance of flow is governed by the gap thickness, the head of grout applied, and the ambient temperature. The following table gives typical data for flow design.

Cleaning

Remove Vetogrout EG340 from tools and equipment with Vetonit Solvent XX400 immediately after use. Remove cured material mechanically.

Surface Preparation

Substrate

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. All dust must be removed, and bolt holes or fixing pockets blown clean any dirt or debris.

Steel surfaces

All steel surfaces should be shot blasted free of rust and flaky mill scale. Protect the Cleaned surfaces by applying Vetoprime EP491.

Form-work

The form-work should be constructed to be leak-proof as Vetogrout EG340 product is free-flowing grouts. Loss of grout once the material is placed but not hardened will result in incomplete filling of the gap.

For free flow grout conditions, it is essential to provide a hydrostatic head of grout. To achieve this, use a feeding hopper system.

For deep-section placing in inaccessible, use extended widths chains to encourage lateral movement and complete filling of the gap, thus eliminating air pockets. For further information, please contact Saveto for specific advice.

Limitation

Chemical Resistance

Vetogrout EG340 is resistant to oil, grease, fats, most chemicals, mild acids and alkalies, fresh and seawater. Consult Saveto’s Technical Department when exposure to solvents or concentrated chemicals is anticipated.

Additional Information
Health & Sefety

Vetogrout EG340 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 EG340 is non-flammable.

Vetonit Solvent XX400 is flammable, do not expose to direct flame. Keep away from heat sources.
