ICO Grout VI

Premixed High Strength Non-Shrink Cementitious Grout


Description

ICO GROUT-V1 is chloride free cement based free flowing non metallic grout that develops very early high compressive strengths. ICO GROUT-V1 was developed in answer to the disadvantages of existing grout mixtures. Its wide acceptance and extensive test indicate that ICO GROUT-V1 is a proven and established product of excellent quality.


Uses

ICO GROUT –VI is used and specified by major utilities like steel projects, paper mills, highway departments and machinery and turbine manufacturers far and wide. ICO GROUT- VI is a proven international non-metallic grout.


Features

  • Controlled expansion ensures positive surface contact.
  • High early strength facilitates rapid installation and early operation.
  • No rusting, staining on exposed edges.
  • Free from chloride compound ensures non-corrosive property.
  • Highly impervious characteristics provide greater durability to installed structure.
  • Very easy to use- addition of water only needed.
  • Reliable- produced under rigid quality control.

Technical Data

  • Granulometry :- 0-4mm
  • Water –Powder Ratio :- 0.12 to 0.16
  • Compressive Strength, N/mm2 at 30˚C, 24 hours (W/P=0.13, plastic mix) :- 35
  • 3 Days :- 48
  • 7 Days :- 55
  • 28 Days :- 75

  • Chloride content :- Nil ( as per BS 5075 Part-I )
  • Shelf Life :- 12 Months in packed sealed condition.

Advantages

  • ICO GROUT-VI is chloride free and non-metallic, thereby overcoming the disadvantages of metallic grouts. Grouting mixtures containing metallic additives will oxidize and rust when exposed to moisture thus weakening the cohesive bond of the grout.
  • Has controlled expansion and is guaranteed not to shrink.
  • Limited expansion is necessary to ensure a rigid monolithic bond between machinery and foundation.
  • V1-GROUT has a measured volumetric expansion, within 24 hours it is completely stable, neither shrinking nor expanding.
  • Provides a full bonding strength and is resistant to high impact and vibration without shattering.
  • V1-GROUT is water and oil resistant and non-corrosive.
  • Has an extremely high adhesive and pull-out strength.
  • An anchor bolt (diameter 25 mm) grouted 20 cm deep, has a pull-out resistance of 144 kg/cm2 .
  • Withstands great fluctuations of moisture, dryness, heat and cold.
  • Reduces about 60%-80% of bearing failures on machinery of rolling mills.

Application

ICO GROUT – VI is ready for use, requiring only the addition of water. Before placement the surface should be thoroughly cleaned and wet. Care must be taken to ensure that grease and oil are removed. In order to reach the required consistency 5-8 litres of water to 1 bag /40 kg ICO GROUT-VI are needed. First add 2/3 of the total needed water. Mix for a short time, and then add the balance quantity of mixing water. Proceed to mix for about4-6 minutes. In order to prevent voids apply grout from one side or corner only.


General Information

ICO GROUT –VI will reach a compressive strength 350 kg/cm2 within 24 hours and will increase to approximately 500 kg/cm2 within 3 days.

Higher temperatures accelerate the setting time whereas lower temperatures will retard the time of reaching its compressive strength.

For example when having temperature of +40 C there would be delay of 24 hours before the initial compressive strengths are reached.

Where grouting area and flow space are of sufficient depth up to 50 % by weight of washed gravel ranging in size from 4-8 mm must be added to the dry pre-mixed grout.

Even by adding 50% of such gravel the compressive strength is reduced only slightly. Opens areas are to be protected against pre-mature water evaporation.

Retains its decisive advantage not to shrink and to have a high adhesive bond even in such an extreme mixture.

ICO NSPGC

Non-Shrink Polymeric Waterproof Grouting Compound


Description

ICO NSPGC is specially formulated non-shrink polymeric compound for injection cement grouting. It is a free flowing powder for addition to neat cement-water milk. It strong plasticising properties allowing the mix for substantial reduction in water content without affecting the fluidity, thus improving the strength and impermeability of the grout.

During the setting period of the grout it produces controlled expansion to compensate the normal plastic shrinkage of cement. This ensures complete filling of voids and prevent formation of porous sections. Due to its surface active property and volume increase during reaction, even the smallest cracks and pores can be impregnated.


Uses

ICO NSPGC is used as an admixture for injection grouting to effectively waterproof and stop leaks in underground structures, basements, tunnels, lift-wells, retaining walls, dams, water reservoirs, pressure ducts and other water retaining structures.

It is also recommended for grouting pre-stressed members and wherever a non-settling, non-bleeding, expanding grout is required.


Method of Use

ICO NSPGC is admixed with neat cement milk of suitable consistency and injected under pressure preferably by a positive displacement pump through nozzles. The surface of the concrete/rock should be properly sealed/patched to prevent the grout from coming out. ICO NSPGC should be mixed uniformly with dry cement.


Dosage

The rate of addition varies from 0.5% - 2% by weight of dry cement. The optimum dosage depends on the nature of the work.


Compatibility

Can be used with all types of Portland and Slag cements including sulphate resisting cement.


Consistency

ICO NSPGC is formulated from carefully selected raw materials and is manufactured under control conditions to give a consistent product.


Handling

ICO NSPGC is formulated from chemicals which present no fire or health hazards.


Storage

If stored in unopened containers at normal ambient temperatures, a shelf life of approximately 12 months could be expected.


Packing

Available in 5 Kg, & 25 Kg bags.

ICO Polygrout

Expansive Aqua-Reactive Water Barrier Grouting System


Description

ICO POLYGROUT is a low viscosity liquid which reacts with water in a controlled manner to form a swelling, resilient adhesive solid in densities and strength appropriate to the designated task. When injected under pressure into leaking structures, through the process of polymerisation, a permanent flexible water barrier is formed.

The liquid retains its initial low viscosity upon contacting water allowing it to flow without dilution. Once the ICO POLYGROUT water reaction commences, the grout expands penetrating into its surrounding and quickly cures to a tough, adhesive solid to repel the influence of underground seepage flow and solidify the objective ground which is unaffected by corrosive environments.


Features

  • ICO POLYGROUT has very remarkable solidifying property even in ground where water flow is violent. It stops water from oozing and solidifies the ground with high strength.
  • ICO POLYGROUT imparts successful solidifying property in all types of water, such as seawater, mineral water or that containing slight acid and alkali.
  • ICO POLYGROUT is extremely stable both chemically and physically and will not be damaged by any bacterium.
  • ICO POLYGROUT is completely non-pollutant to the water it contacts and has no effect on potable water, fish or marine life.
  • ICO POLYGROUT possesses excellent adhesiveness to solid particles and is therefore useful in landslide prevention.
  • ICO POLYGROUT does not wash away or is not diluted by the ground water.

Uses

  • Prevention of water from leaking into underground (basements, tanks, sumps, pits etc)
  • Soil stabilisation for foundations.
  • Securing tie – back anchors for retaining walls or guys.
  • Serving as sealer or liner in concrete structures.
  • Preventing water from oozing from ground.
  • Serving as water barrier in basement gravel bedding waterproofing system.

Applications

  • Solidifying and strengthening of ground and rock and stopping water from oozing out.
  • Preventing leakage in tunnels and tunnel segment, deep underground structures and water retaining structures.
  • Stabilisation of abutment and bridge piers.
  • Preventing leakage through dams.
  • Preventing of landslides.
  • Solidifying and creating a water barrier in rock and earth fill dams.
  • Back filling by impregnation for tunnel shield construction.
  • Preventing air from leaking during compressed air shield construction or caisson construction.
  • Facilitates supportability of pile and pier.
  • Increases bearing capacity of underpinning
  • Prevention of crown collapse in tunnels.
  • Solidifying agent to atomic, industrial and chemical waste solutions or wastewater.
