PREPRUFE® Grout EG 75 is a high performance, solvent free, impermeable epoxy grout for maintaining continuity of PREPRUFE® waterproofing systems at pile heads and similar structural penetrations. The product comprises of a base epoxy resin, an epoxy hardener and graded mineral aggregates. The three components are supplied pre-measured for easy on site mixing at the correct ratio.
- Waterproofing of pileheads and pilecaps
- Waterproofing of structural penetrations through PREPRUFE® waterproofing systems
- Recommended thickness range 1/2" (13mm) - 3" (75 mm)
To achieve continuity of Preprufe waterproofing systems at pile heads and similar structural penetrations, the following system components are needed.
- BITUTHENE® Liquid Membrane – high performance, liquid membrane
- PREPRUFE® 300R or 300R Plus – sheet membrane
- PREPRUFE® Tape – for sealing of laps in Preprufe sheet membranes
- PREPRUFE® Grout CEM 100 (optional) – high performance non shrink cementitious grout for re-profiling pile heads before the application of PREPRUFE® Grout EG 75 (see separate product data sheet)
Consult with your GCP Applied Technologies Technical Representative for guidance on proper detailing.
- Water resistant adhesion to all products in the PREPRUFE® sheet waterproofing system
- High bond to substrate
- Rapid strength gain
- High compressive, flexural and tensile strengths
- Fluid consistency
- Solvent free
- No segregation or shrinkage
- Highly resistant to acids, alkalies, common salts and sulphates
- Easy mixing and placing
All surfaces to be in contact with PREPRUFE® Grout EG75 shall be free of oil, grease, laitance and other contaminants. Concrete must be clean, sound, and roughened to ensure a good bond. For optimum adhesion, concrete should be visibly free of surface moisture. Remove rust from any reinforcement that will be in contact with the epoxy grout.
Formwork may be utilized for more accurate placement and is required to be constructed at vertical surfaces to obtain min. 1/2 inch thickness. All removable formwork should be coated with a mineral oil or water based release agent, before the grout is placed.
Contact your GCP Applied Technologies Technical Service Representative for further information
Mixing and Placing:
For optimum performance, all components should be conditioned to between 70°F and 80°F (21°C and 27°C) prior to use. Using a clean metal pail, pour component A into the pail, add component B and mix using a clean paddle mixer and slow speed drill (max 400 rpm) for two minutes. Slowly add the full contents of component C, mix continuously, and scrape unmixed material from the side and bottom of pail with a trowel. Mix for a minimum of three minutes or until a flowable homogenous consistency is achieved. Working time is approximately 30 minutes when temperatures are at 70°F (21°C). Pour the grout from the pail into the forms continuously, if more grout is required, mix the next unit while the first is being poured to enable continuous placement. Finish with a trowel where necessary.
Grout temperature shall be maintained above 50°F until grout reaches required strength.
All tools and equipment may be cleaned with a water and strong detergent solution or suitable solvent before material hardens. Sand may be used as an abrasive.
Where the use of cementitious re-profiling grout is necessary, use PREPRUFE® Grout CEM 100 or equivalent. Do not use other nonshrink cementitious grouts or site batched sand/cement mortars.
