ACS Grout TC is a medium strength, shrinkage compensated (non shrink) Bentonite based cement grout containing a blend of Portland cements, graded fillers and special additives which facilitate controlled expansion in both plastic and hardened states.
Grout TC is supplied as a ready to use powder containing super plasticisers which when mixed with water, produces a free flowing, rammable, pumpable precision grout for use with heat loop systems and other related applications.
ACS Grout TC has been designed for use in the geo-exchange (geothermal) industry specifically to minimize bleed and segregation in grouting and sealing bore holes containing heat loop systems and other related applications.
ACS Grout TC should be mixed using a high speed drill and spiral mixer, mechanical grout mixer, or a suitable high sheer drum mixer. DO NOT MIX MATERIAL BY HAND.
Because continuous grout flow is essential, ensure that the mixing method and labour is sufficient to enable continuity of the operation.
Add the correct measured water content into the mixing vessel, to achieve the selected consistencies. the amount of clean water to be added per 20kg bag should be 5.0 – 5.5 litres.
Temperature and Working Limitations
For maximum performance, it is important to maintain the grout, heat loops or other relevant grout contactable material within a temperature range of 18 – 25°C prior to, during and 48 hours following placement of the grout.
Grouting should not take place if the temperature is 5°C or lower. Warm water can be used to accelerate strength development during colder weather.
When temperatures exceed 30°C, grouting should be sheltered from the heat or conducted early morning. Keep materials cool and use cold water in the mix.
All tools should be rinsed with water immediately after use to remove all traces of ACS Grout TC.
Health and Safety
During use, avoid inhalation of dust and contact with the skin and eyes. Wear suitable clothing, gloves, eye protection and respiratory protective equipment.
If contact with the skin occurs, thoroughly clean the area with plenty of fresh water and soap. In case of contact with the eyes rinse with plenty of fresh water and seek medical advice.
If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately – do not induce vomiting.
For further information consult the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and read the product label carefully before use.
