Specification

Supplier specification

Where mentioned on the contract documents, all precision grouting (specify details and areas of

application) must be carried out using Conbextra Sureflow 100 manufactured by Fosroc and used in

accordance with the manufacturer’s data sheet.

Performance specification

All precision grouting (specify details and areas of application) must be carried out with a pre- packaged cement based product, which is non- metallic and chloride-free. It shall be mixed with clean water to the required consistency and not exhibit bleed or segregation. A volumetric expansion of up to 2% shall occur while the grout is in a plastic state by means of a gaseous, hydrogen-free system. The grout must also be compensated for shrinkage in the hardened state.

The compressive

strength

of

the

grout

must

exceed 55 N/mm² at 7 days and 65 N/mm² at 28 days when tested at water powder ratio of 0.15. The storage, handling and placement of the grout

must

be

in

strict

accordance

with

the

manufacturer’s instructions.

Instructions for Use

Preparation Concrete surface

 

The substrate surface must be free from

oil,

grease or

any loosely adherent material. If

the

concrete surface is defective

or has laitance,

it

must be cut back to a sound base. Bolt holes and

fixing pockets must be blown clean of any dirt or debris.

Pre-soaking

For a minimum of 2 hours prior to grouting, the area of cleaned substrate should be flooded with fresh water. Immediately before grouting takes place, any free water should be removed. Particular care should be taken to blow out all bolt holes and pockets.

Base plate

It is essential that this is clean and free from oil, grease or scale. Air pressure relief holes should be provided to allow venting of any isolated high spots.

Levelling Shims

 

If

these are

to

be removed after the grout has

hardened, they should be treated with a thin layer

of grease.

Levelling Screws

Levelling screws should have a waxed sleeve

enclosure if subsequent re-levelling required.

will

be

Formwork

The formwork should be constructed to be leak- proof as Conbextra Sureflow 100 is a free flowing grout. This can be achieved by using foam rubber strip or mastic sealant beneath the constructed formwork and between joints.

In some cases

it

is practical to use a sacrificial

semi-dry sand and cement formwork. The formwork should include outlets for the pre-soaking

water.

Unrestrained surface area

This must be kept to a minimum. Generally the gap width between the perimeter formwork and the plate edge should not exceed 75 mm on the pouring side and 25 mm on the opposite side. There should be no gap at the flank sides.

Figure 1: Alignment of formwork with sleeved levelling screws

Mixing

For best results a mechanically powered grout mixer should be used. For quantities up to 50 kg a slow speed drill fitted with a Fosroc Mixing Paddle (MR3) should be used. Larger quantities will require a high shear vane mixer. Do not use a colloidal impeller mixer.

Fosroc Conbextra Sureflow 100

constructive solutions

It is essential that machine mixing capacity and labour availability is adequate to enable the grouting operation to be carried out continuously. This may require the use of a holding tank with provision for gentle agitation to maintain fluidity.

Consistency of mixed grout

To achieve the consistencies the amount of clean water that is added to a 25 kg bag is:

diaphragm pump is recommended for this purpose. Screw feed and piston pumps may also be suitable.

Curing

On completion of the grouting operation, exposed areas should be thoroughly cured. This should be done by the use of Concure curing membrane, or continuous application of water and/or wet hessian.

Plastic:

3.25~3.5L

Pourable:

3.75~4.0L

Flowable:

4.00~4.25L

Cleaning

The selected water content should be accurately measured into the mixer. Slowly add the total contents of the Conbextra Sureflow 100 bag, mix continuously for 3 minutes, ensuring a smooth, even consistency is obtained.

Conbextra Sureflow 100 should be removed from tools and equipment with clean water immediately after use. Cured material can be removed

mechanically, or with Fosroc Acid Etch*†.

High temperature working

Conbextra Sureflow 100 can be placed in a minimum thickness of 10mm up to a maximum thickness of 100mm in a single pour when used as an underplate grout. For thicker sections it is necessary to fill out Conbextra SureFlow 100 with well graded 5~10mm, silt free aggregate to minimise exotherm. If bulking with aggregate is used the ratio shall not exceed 1:1. Contact Fosroc for details of pre-bagged supply. The properties of a bulked grout will differ from those published in this data sheet. Consider the use of Conbextra TS for thick section grouting where precise material properties are required.

Any bolt pockets must be grouted prior to grouting between the substrate and the base plate.

Continuous grout flow is essential. Sufficient grout must be available prior to starting and the time taken to pour a batch must be regulated to the time taken to prepare the next one.

The mixed grout should be poured only from one side of the void to eliminate the entrapment of air or surplus pre-soaking water. This is best achieved by pouring the grout across the shortest distance of travel. The grout head must be maintained at all times so that a continuous grout front is achieved.

Where large volumes have to be placed Conbextra Sureflow 100 may be pumped. A heavy duty

It is suggested that, for temperatures above 35°C, the following guidelines are adopted as good working practice:

  • (i) Store unmixed material in a cool (preferably

temperature controlled) environment, avoiding exposure to direct sunlight. (ii) Keep equipment cool, arranging shade protection if necessary. It is especially important to keep cool those surfaces of the equipment which will come into direct contact with the material itself. (iii) Try to eliminate application during the hottest times of the day and in direct sunlight. (iv) Make sufficient material, plant and labour available to ensure that application is a continuous

process.

  • (v) Water (below 20°C) should be used for mixing

the grout prior to placement

Limitations

In general, grouts should not be placed in any unrestrained situation, i.e. base plate plinths, etc. Failure to comply may lead to crack development in the grout. However they can be used for bolt pockets. In doubt, please consult your local Fosroc offices for more details.

When placing materials with a plastic consistency, minimum thickness may be higher than stated dependent upon dimensions of the pour. Consult your local Fosroc offices for more details.

Fosroc operates a policy to encourage the use, where possible, of approved or licensed applicators. This ensures that works are completed satisfactorily so that the long term performance of the materials is assured. For contractors who wish to apply the materials themselves Fosroc is also able to offer technical assistance and training, either on-site or at its Training Centre in Dubai.

B: Application Method

  • 1.0 Surface Preparation Attention to full and proper preparation is essential to successful grouting.

  • 1.1 The substrate surface must be free from oil, grease or any loosely adherent material.

  • 1.2 Remove laitance, defective surfaces must be cut back to a sound base.

  • 1.3 Blow clean all bolt holes or fixing pockets of any dirt or debris.

  • 2.0 Bearing plate/base plate

  • 2.1 The underside of the base plate should be clean and free from oil, grease, rust, scale or other loosely adherent material.

  • 2.2 It may be necessary to provide air pressure relief holes to allow venting of any isolated high spots.

  • 2.3 If levelling shims are to be removed once the grout has hardened, then they should be pre- treated with a thin layer of grease.

  • 3.0 Formwork - general

  • 3.1 Before fixing any formwork, ensure that the area to be grouted is clean.

  • 3.2 The formwork itself must be constructed to be leak proof, to prevent any possible grout loss. This can be achieved by using foam rubber strip or mastic sealant beneath the formwork, and at any joints in the formwork. It shall, however, also be provided with drain holes and plugs.

  • 3.3 The formwork should also be constructed in such a way as to keep the final, unrestrained surface area of the grout to a minimum, to avoid problems with cracking at a later stage.

constructive solutions 3.4 It should be fixed in such a way as to allow easy stripping,

constructive solutions

  • 3.4 It should be fixed in such a way as to allow easy stripping, without causing damage or distress to the grout - particularly if this is to be done whilst the grout is still ‘green’.

  • 3.5 All dirt and debris to be removed from the grout area before the last piece of formwork is fixed, to facilitate pre-soaking (see below).

  • 4.0 Formwork - geometry

  • 4.1 Pouring side

    • - set up so that grout will be poured the shortest distance across the base plate

    • - erect a maximum of 75 mm from the base plate edge

    • - erect a minimum of 150 mm higher than the underside of the base plate

  • 4.2 Open side

    • - set up directly opposite the pouring side

    • - erected a maximum of 25 mm from the plate edge

    • - erected a minimum of 25 mm higher than the underside of the base plate

  • 4.3 Flanking sides

    • - set up flush with the plate edge

    • - close attention to ‘grout tightness’ of the formwork.

  • constructive solutions 3.4 It should be fixed in such a way as to allow easy stripping,

    constructive solutions

    • 5.1 All concrete surfaces within the formwork area should be saturated with clean, fresh water for several hours prior to grouting.

    • 5.2 Immediately before grouting takes place, any free water should be removed. Particular care should be taken to blow out all bolt holes and pockets.

    • 6.0 Mixing

    • 6.1 For best results a mechanically powered grout mixer should be used - do not use a colloidal impeller mixer.

    • 6.2 For small quantities of grout a slow speed drill (400/500 rpm) fitted with a high shear paddle is acceptable, but mixing should be restricted to one bag at a time in a container of minimum capacity 25 liters.

    • 6.3 Measure out clean water into the mixer, as per below mentioned quantities:

    3.75 ~ 4.0 liters for Pourable consistency of the mix / 25kg bag

    4 ~ 4.25 liters for Flowable consistency of the mix / 25kg bag

    • 6.4 Slowly add the full bag of Conbextra Sureflow 100 to the water and mix continuously for 3 minutes, until a smooth, free flowing consistency is obtained.

    • 6.5 Alternatively, to improve material flow, the selected water content should be accurately measured. Put 70~80% of the pre-measured water into the mixer, gradually add the whole Conbextra Sureflow 100 bag materials into the mixer while continuously mixing. Add the remaining water until the desired consistency is achieved, Mix for 3~4 minutes. This will ensure that the grout has a smooth, homogeneous consistency.

    • 6.6 Under no circumstances should part bags be used, or additional water employed. Either of these two actions will change the water: powder ratio, adversely affecting material performance and automatically invalidating Fosroc’s standard product guarantee.

    • 6.7 Conbextra Sureflow 100 can be placed in a minimum thickness of 10mm up to a maximum thickness of 100mm in a single pour when used as an underplate grout. For thicker sections it is necessary to fill out Conbextra SureFlow 100 with well graded 5~10mm, silt free aggregate to minimise exotherm. If bulking with aggregate is used the ratio shall not exceed 1:1. Contact Fosroc for details of pre-bagged supply. The properties of a bulked grout will differ from those published in this data sheet.

    • 7.0 Placing

    7.0 Placing constructive solutions 7.1 It is essential that the machine mixing capacity, material supply and

    constructive solutions

    • 7.1 It is essential that the machine mixing capacity, material supply and labour availability is adequate to enable the grouting operation to be carried out continuously. This may require the use of a holding tank, with provision for gentle agitation to maintain fluidity.

    • 7.2 Immediately prior to placement, the mixed grout should be briefly agitated to release any surface tension. Place the grout within 15 minutes of mixing to gain the full benefit of the expansion process.

    • 7.3 Any bolt pockets must be grouted prior to grouting between the substrate and the base plate.

    • 7.4 Continuous grout flow during the grouting operation is essential. Sufficient grout must be available prior to starting, and time taken to pour a batch must be regulated to the time taken to prepare the next one.

    • 7.5 The mixed grout should be poured only from one side of the void to eliminate the entrapment of air, or surplus pre-soaking water. The grout head must be maintained at all times so that a continuous grout front is achieved.

    • 7.6 Do not attempt to vibrate or agitate the grout to encourage flow or settlement. Vibrations may lead to bleeding or segregation of the material.

    • 7.7 When the grout reaches the open side of the formwork, and rises above the underside of the base plate, pouring should continue slowly down the length of the base plate until completed.

    • 7.8 In the event of formwork leakage, plug immediately using Fosroc Renderoc Plug.

    • 8.0 Finishing

    • 8.1 Wherever possible unrestrained “shoulders” are to be avoided. These have a tendency to crack and/or debond, due to their unrestrained nature.

    • 9.0 Curing

    • 9.1 On completion of the grouting operation, all exposed areas of grout should be thoroughly cured. For best results use Concure curing membrane, continuous application of water and/or wet hessian.
