POLYGROUT EY 3000 PH

Description

Pile head epoxy resin bedding grout and mortar

 

Polygrout EY 3000 (PH) is a three component solvent free epoxy resin based bedding grout and mortar used for pile head encapsulation. It is a combination of high performance epoxy resins, specially graded aggregates and additives to provide excellent mechanical properties. Polygrout EY 3000 (PH) fully bonds with the pile head and forms a watertight system by preventing any seepage from cracks and capillaries in the pile head.

Properties

  • High compressive strength
  • Resistant to high temperature
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Excellent impact and abrasion resistance
  • Early strength development
  • Compatible with bitumen based waterproofing membranes and coatings

Step by Step

Surface Preparation

Surfaces shall be structurally sound and clean of all contaminants like mould release agent, curing compound, grease, paint and cement laitance. The area shall be dry and free of standing water. Surface cleaning by grit/captive blasting or wire brushing is recommended depending on the degree of contamination. A watertight shutter shall be erected all around the area where Polygrout EY 3000 (PH) shall be poured. Any gaps or openings below the formwork or on joints shall be sealed with a suitable mastic sealant or a rubber seal.                   

CAUTION: Resin leakage from the grout will result in segregation. The formwork shall be coated with a heavy duty mould release oil to ensure easy deshuttering.

Mixing

Mix Part A and Part B separately for a minute using a slow speed drill (300 - 400 rpm) fitted to a suitable paddle mixer. Then add Part B into Part A and mix thoroughly for 1-2 minutes. Add Part C aggregates slowly into the mix and further mix for another for 3-4 minutes till a uniform and homogenous consistency is achieved.

NOTE: ALL PARTS ARE PRE-WEIGHED AND NO PART MIXING IS ALLOWED.

Placing

Pour the mixed Polygrout EY 3000 (PH) immediately after mixing and within the pot life. The grout shall be poured continuously from one corner or end to avoid entrapment of air. The material is self compacting, so no additional vibration is required. For congested areas it is recommended to lightly tamp the shutters with a rubber mallet to remove the entrapped air.

NOTE: The grout which has exceeded its pot life shall not be used and be discarded immediately.
