Grouting mortars are free-flowing, high strength cement or synthetic resin-based mortars. Grout is a composite material generally consisting of water, cement, and sand. It is typically used for filling voids under machines or other structural elements, sealing joints and openings in surfaces, and reinforcing existing structures as well as for anchors. Sika can provide all technologies of grouting materials for specific applications on site.
Sika's Grout Solutions Have Many Advantages
- Pre-mixed to ensure high quality mortar
- One-component product - just add water and mix
- Shrinkage compensated
- No segregation or bleeding
- Can be poured or pumped
- Fills any voids, cavities, gaps and recesses (e.g. machine and base plates, dowling reinforcing bars, fixing posts, etc.)
- Bedding joints in pre-cast concrete sections
Excellent bonding & strength
- Excellent flow properties
- Adjustable consistency
- Fast strength development
- Highly effective bearing area
- Good adhesion to concrete
Cement based grouting products are suitable for different fixing and bedding applications as machinery bases, bearing plates, steel frames, etc.
Epoxy based grouting products are suitable in selected applications, e.g. for high strength bearing areas, early flexural and compressive strength, dynamic loading, etc.
Use for permanent grouting of horizontal and vertical post-tensioned cable ducts of reinforced concrete bridges.
Injection is a procedure of pumping cement-based, polyurethane-based, epoxy-based or acrylate-based material into damaged or cracked structures to securely seal leaks, repair compromised structures and make them watertight again for the long term.
Sika provide a full range of hand and machine applied polymer grouts based on different technologies for all methods of fixing and damping of railway, tram and metro tracks. Sika’s special know-how allows the reduction of noise and vibration for LRT track sections under discrete base plates, for all type of substrates.
