Services > Chemical and Cement Grouting
The term "grouting" refers to the filling of voids using stable materials. These voids can be filled with either cement based grouts or chemical based grouts such as polyurethane.
Cement grouts typically are portland cement based. Admixtures can be added to give cement grouts certain characteristics that modify properties such as fluidity, wash out and final cure. Cement grouts can be used to fill voids below slabs where the base has sunk, reinforce existing base materials and block walls in concrete structures.
Chemicals grouts are used when typical portland cement grouts are not a viable option.
Chemical grouts are usually polyurethane based and are used when areas of high water flows are encountered. They provide high reaction times to the water present and do not wash out. These grouts can be used to repair leaks in tunnels, manholes, walls and slabs where overtime high water flows have washed out the soils. The chemical grout fills the void as well as mitigating the leak at the same time.
Advanced Concrete Solutions has successfully completed numerous chemical and cement grouting projects.
