Why is Shrinkkomp superior to Conventional Non-Shrinking Grout?
Free - Flowing
Non-Plastic. 145% flow with 18% water and 100-125% flow with 15% water.

Permanent Expansion
No gas forming agents for temporary expansion.

Chloride Free
Shrinkkomp products do not contain chemical accelerators like chlorides for early strength development.

Non - Rusting
A non-metallic type of grout, Shrinkkomp is free from any iron or oxidising agent.

Tailor - Made
Compositions of Shrinkkomp offered to meet customer specifications.

Ordinary portland cement mortar shrinks Shrinkkomp gives positive grip Shrinkage ~' nEIJn SHRINKKOMP. The temperature of the Grout while mixing should be preferably below 25°C. Curing: Cure for a minimum of seven days for Shrinkkomp 10. Surface Preparation: Ensure a clean and strong concrete base. .. thus leaving gaps in foundations which can affect the quality of anchoring creates vibrations and damage machines. through the openings in the base plate. Restrict mixing to quantities which can be placed in ten to fifteen minutes.- - . In the case of bolt holes. 3. Wet the surface thoroughly before grouting. A preferable method to ensure flow and compaction of the grout below the bed plates is to use long pieces of doubled over flexible steel strapping or chains. by ponding water or with wet Hessian both directions within four cms from the top should be ' --. Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC).- Typical method of pouring grout S. adequate restraint must be ensured on all sides for a period of seven days.. either through the holes in the base plates or from one side only to ensure complete filling without entrapment of air. Conventional 200/140 Itr mixer is suitable for 200 kg dry grout. Remove all dust by suction or compressed air. The forward and backward movement of the strap or chain will assist in the flow of the grout into place. Remove all free water... 2. It could be ' used for: • Anchoring of machine base plates and bridge bearings. a new range of non shrinking and free flowing grouts. thereby improving its strength and bonding property.. this restraint is naturally ensured. When using in locations with exposed top reinforcement-of atleast 0. As a result these grouts provide a positive grip monolithic effect and thus very suitable tor static as well as dynamic loads. Grout should be properly spread and compacted by rodding. Heavy backup blocks of timber or concrete should be fixed on all sides of the base plate to prevent the grout escaping. • Providing structural strength to the machine base and column foundation. To obtain effective shrinkage compensation. Judicious vibration with a needle vibrator could also be used. • STEPWISE PROCEDURE FOR USE segregation and bleeding. Restraint: Restrained expansion induces precompression in the grout. Steps must be taken to keep the grout in full contact with the underside of the bed plate until the grout sets. are self leveling and expand on hardening. E o o C') . composed of an expansive hydraulic setting binder and select-graded aggregates have been developed exclusively for grouting machine and column foundations. Shrinkkomp offers high structural stability to the machine and prevents any base vibration during operation. Maintaining a small head of fresh grout in the forms would help.- - .20 and 30 and one to three days for Shrinkkomp 40. Mixing: Mix dry grout with recommended quantity of water in a mechanical paddle/drum type mixer. but over-vibration should be avoided as it can cause .
