Application

Preparation: Remove all dirt, oil, and loose or foreign material. Any metal in contact with grout must be free of rust, oil, grease, and other foreign matter which would limit bond. Concrete surface must be sound and roughened to insure proper bonding. Prior to placing grout, surface should be saturated surface dry (SSD), if possible for an hour. Remove all excess water before placement of grout. Bolts, base plates and equipment must be secure and rigid before placement of grout. Forms: Allow for the continuous placement of grout. Provisions for venting to avoid air entrapment must be made. Placing from one side, provide a 45o angle in the forms to a height suitable to provide a head of grout during placement. On all sides, provide a minimum 1” (2.54 cm) horizontal clearance between the base plate and forms. Forms should be at least 1” (2.54 cm) higher than the bottom of the base plate. Mixing: Small quantities of grout may be hand mixed in a concrete mixing pan until lump free. For large quantities and continuous pours, mix using a mortar mixer with rubber tipped blades or appropriate grout pump for a minimum of 5 minutes. Start with minimum water requirements. Always add water to mixer first, then slowly add powder. Use only the amount of water required for the desired placement consistency. Mix in two steps: Add 2/3 of the
water, add grout, after partial mixing add the remaining 1/3 of the water for desired consistency. Thoroughly mix total quantity for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Do not mix more than can be placed in 30 minutes. Test data and recommended water amounts are based on laboratory conditions. Actual field results may vary based on jobsite conditions. Placing: Place continuously and quickly. Start from one side to avoid air trapment. Be sure grout fills spaces and remains in contact with plate. DO NOT VIBRATE. A
minimum of 1” (2.48 cm) vertical clearance should be maintained for base plate grouting applications. Thinner vertical clearances may require the use of another type of grout. Curing: Immediately cover with clean, wet rags (do not use burlap) and keep moist until final set. After final set, remove rags and apply an ASTM-C-309 curing compound, such as SpecChem Cure & Seal 25.
