Technical Information
Product Description

Vetogrout EG340 is a multi-component grout composed of epoxy resin, hardener and selected aggregates. It is supplied as a pre-weighed packs ready to use on site that required only mixing to produce a free flow precision grout. Vetogrout EG340 is specially formulated for use where heavy dynamic loads exist, high physical and mechanical properties are required with excellent chemical resistance. Typical uses include rail grouting, crane rails, pile cap treatment, bridge bearings, fixing rock bolts and anchors, cavity filling and high speed turbine base grouting.

Advantages
  • Free flow characteristics even in thin layers
  • Non-Shrink with high adhesion
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • Suitable for damp and dry substrates

Application Information
Instructions for use

 

Mixing

Pour all the contents of the hardener pack into the base container. Mix using a slow speed power mixer until homogeneous. Pour all the resultant liquid into a container with a capacity of 15-25 liters. Add all the filler provided for the product. Mix using a slow speed power mixer for two minutes or until a uniform color is achieved in the grouts.

Placing

The mixed grout should be poured steadily from one side only to eliminate the entrapment of air. Continuous grout flow is essential. Suffi cient grout must be available prior to starting. The time taken to pour a batch should be regulated to the time taken to prepare the next batch.

Flow Characteristics
The maximum distance of flow is governed by the gap thickness, the head of grout applied and the ambient temperature. Refere to Vetogrout EG340 Technical data sheets for further details.

Cleaning

Vetogrout EG340 should be removed from tools and equipment with Vetonit Solvent 1 immediately after use. Cured material can be removed mechanically.

Surface Preparation

Substrate

All contact surfaces must be free from oil, grease, free standing water or any loosely adherent material. Concrete surfaces should be cut back to a sound base. All dust must be removed and bolt holes or fixing pockets blown clean of any dirt or debris.

Steel surfaces

All steel surfaces should be shot blasted free of rust and flaky mill scale. Cleaned surfaces may be protected by the application of Vetoprime EP490.

Form-work

The form-work should be constructed to be leak-proof as Vetogrout EG340 product is free flowing grouts. Loss of grout once the material is placed, but not hardened, will result in incomplete filling of the gap. For free flow grout conditions it is essential to provide a hydrostatic head of grout. To achieve this a feeding hopper system should be used. For deep section placing in inaccessible, extended widths chains may be used to encourage lateral movement and complete filling of the gap, thus eliminating air pockets. For further information please contact Saveto for specific advice.

Limitation

Chemical Resistance
Vetogrout EG340 is resistant to oil, grease, fats, most chemicals, mild acids and alkalies, fresh and sea water. Consult Saveto’s Technical Department when exposure to solvents or concentrated chemicals is anticipated.

Additional Information
Health & Sefety

Vetogrout EG340 Contains resins which may cause sensitization by skin contact. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapor. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection. Barrier creams provide additional skin protection. Should accidental skin contact occur, remove immediately with a resin removing cream, followed by soap and water. Do not use solvent. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. If swallowed seek medical attention immediately. Do not induce vomiting.

Vetogrout EG340 is non-flammable.

Vetonit Solvent 1 is flammable, do not expose to direct flame and keep away from heat sources.
