Most contractors at one time or another have used construction grouts. They’ve used them to grout everything from equipment baseplates to precast tunnel panels to embedding rebar in masonry walls. But when deciding which product and/or which technique is appropriate to get the job done, are there some common sense guidelines to keep in mind? Likewise, the engineering community specifies a variety of grouts (both cement and polymer based) for a myriad of applications. What criteria play a role in that specification? Should more be considered than just the material properties in the hardened state?
Grout: “To fill a void”. Grout is one of those great words that’s both a noun and a verb. An in depth discussion of both will be included in this 45 minute presentation. Please join us.
