Kilsaran KPRO Grout NSG 2601-HF is, a non-shrink construction grout, designed for use in thicknesses ranging from 10mm – 100mm, in the following applications;
Suitable for use in temperatures between +5°C and +30°C. Ensure all surfaces are clean and free from dust, dirt and grease. Pre-soak area to be grouted a minimum of 2 hours before installation to avoid absorption. To achieve a high fluidity grout mix the contents of a 25kg bag with 3.2-3.5 litres of clean potable water. Using excessive water (above 0.2 water/solid ratio) will affect the product’s overall performance. Mixing should be carried out in a suitable container by forced action using a paddle or high shear vane mixer, or grouting pump. The powder should be added gradually to the measured water in the mixing vessel and mixed for 5 minutes until a smooth, cohesive consistency is achieved. Once mixed no further water should be added.
Baseplate: Ensure that a sufficient supply of material will be mixed to avoid interruption when filling. Always pour from one side and use air vents were necessary to avoid air entrapment. Pour from a height to ensure maximum compaction and use a rod to aid filling. Do not vibrate the grout. Temporary levelling shims should be greased if they are to be removed after grout hardens.
Formwork: As the grout is a free-flowing, it is important to ensure the formwork is sufficiently prepared to avoid leaks. A sacrificial concrete mix can be used to fix the baseplate shutter or as a bern. Keep unrestrained areas around the baseplate to less than 150mm.
Curing: Should be as per standard practices for cement-based products. Grout should be protected from strong sunlight and cold weather.
