PU GROUT
PU GROUT, is a water-reactive grout specifically designed for injection into leaking
concrete, masonry or brickwork, to stop the flow of water. Commencement of the
chemical reaction with water can be adjusted by the addition of a variable quantity of
CATALYST.
PU GROUT forms an excellent barrier against water seepage caused by
hydroscopic pressure, has good chemical resistance and is non-toxic once set. By
restraining the natural expansion created by this reaction, a strong closed-cell rigid
foam is formed, providing a permanent barrier to the ingress of water
COMPOSITION
PU GROUT is a low viscosity MDI-based isocyanate which transforms into a rigid polyurethane
foam when in contact with water. The reaction time is adjusted by the addition of CATALYST.

OPERATION PROCEDURE
PU GROUT can be injected by electric-drilled operated injection pump or hand held manual pump
with the required packers. Technical experienced in handling equipment and assessment of the
site condition for suitable application should be necessary. It is recommended that pressurized
grouting at the same position for two times to ensure no water leakage.

STORAGE & HANDLING


Store in cool dry areas. Temperature above 50C may cause premature formation of insoluble
solids. Good housekeeping is essential in areas where chemical spillage is likely to occur.
Partly used drums/pails should be tightly sealed to prevent ingress of moisture. To increase the
Material life expectancy, partially used drum/pail should be filled with Nitrogen gas and sealed
tightly to prevent contamination. (Please refer to method statement provided)
HEALTH & SAFETY
Avoid contact with skin, eye and avoid breathing vapor. Wear gloves, goggles and full clothing
when handling with raw materials. Keep away from children. Provide adequate ventilation in
confined spaces. If contact with skin occurs PU GROUT should be removed with soap removing
cream followed by washing with soap and water. DO NOT use solvent. Should poisoning occur,
consult a physician in all cases. Should poisoning occur, call doctor immediately, DO NOT
induce vomiting, drink plenty of water or milk. MSDS shall be available upon request.
PACKING
PU GROUT: 20Kg, 25Kg and 225Kg/pail/drum
CATALYST: 1 Kg, 5Kg and 25Kg/pack/pail

Method statement
1) Drill 10mm/13mm/16mm diameter holes at 100-500mm intervals along the side of the
crack or joint, at a 45 angle in order that the path of the crack or joints intersected in the
center of the concrete slab/wall. The distance between holes will depend on the size of
the crack or joint to be injected.
2) Insert the mechanical packers into the 10mm/13mm/16mm diameter holes and tighten
securely.
3) Use a clean and dry bucket; pour in the PU GROUT to the desired amount. Add the
CATALYST gradually average recommended at 5% (5:100). Mix/stir well. Increase
the dosage if rapid curing is required.
4) Commence injection by using SWM1000, SWM1100 or DHP2000 electric-drilled
operated injection pump, ensuring that the crack is filled. The material must be visible
during the initial set stage (yellowish expanding foam). Always return to previously
injected packers/points and re-inject to ensure that the PU GROUT is completely
compacted.
5) In the event of filling vertical cracks or joints, commence injection from the bottom. In
case of horizontal cracks or joints, begin from either side.
6) Inexperience operating the pump may cause the injection pump clog. Increase operating
speed is required if higher dosage of catalyst is used.
7) Allow the PU GROUT to cure for 24 hours before removing the injected packers.
Exposed, solidified grout will be visible. Plug all holes with a suitable mortar.
8) It is recommended to flush the machine with non-flammable solvent before and after
used.
