High Strength Epoxy Mortar for Pile Treatment
EPOGROUT PC is a three component epoxy based grout consisting of base (A), hardener (B) and graded filler (C). When mixed together, the product becomes high strength impermeable epoxy mortar.
EPOGROUT PC is specially formulated to be used as a pile head treatment. When applied to top of the pile head, the product provides a highly bonded waterproofing barrier to the pile head which prevents water seepage from ground to the pile caps through the piles.
EPOGROUT PC is also specified for use in the bridge construction where as part of an integrated system.
The product supplied in a three-component 30kg kit.
Approximately 15L per 30kg kit.
Keep the product in dry, covered conditions at 25ºC. In these conditions, product stability is 12 months from date of manufacturing.
The pile head surface must be clean, sound and uncontaminated. Remove all dirt, laitance, grease or any other foreign material.
Remove all loose particles or defected concrete. Use EPOFINISH or BETOCEM HR to repair / re-profile the pile head.
pile head surface should be cleaned and completely dry just before applying the product.
Pile reinforcement bars should be straightened, clean and rust free. Steel bars may be protected by the application of one coat of BETOFER or EPOZINC (steel primers).
Fix a complete leak proof wooden formwork around the pile head. Use sealant, foam or rubber strip to seal the joints in the formwork and to close the gaps between the formwork and the pile head. Coat the formwork from inside with a high quality release agent to ease the de-bonding of the shuttering afterwards.
EPOGROUT PC is supplied as a three-component kit consisting of base, hardener and a bag of selected, graded aggregate. The resin and hardener components should be stirred separately for three minutes or until thoroughly blended. The contents of the hardener should be added to the base component and stirred with a heavy duty drill until all the components are thoroughly blended. Then slowly add the entire amount of aggregates to the resin while the mixer is still running. Partial mixing of the three components should not be allowed under any circumstances.
Place the mixed products immediately after mixing; use a steel trowel to level. It is advisable to calculate and mix enough quantity each time for one pile or multiple of piles.
The mixed product should be strictly placed within the product pot life. Watch the formwork while placing the product, if any leakage is noted, seal the leaking spot immediately.
Once the product dries, the formwork can be removed. Clean the surface by sanding it manually to remove all traces of release agent, and to provide an adhesive key for the recommend waterproofing system.
All used tools should be cleaned with SOLVENTE 10 before the product cures. Hardened material should be removed mechanically.
