Instructions for Use Foundation surface 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, paint and flaky mill scale. Formwork The formwork should be constructed to be leakproof as Conbextra EP10 is a free flowing grout. 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. Forming materials should be coated with a release agent such as grease or wax material or a plastic coating. These coatings act as a bond breaker so that a smooth grout surface is achieved after form removal and the forms are protected for reuse. Mixing Pour all the contents of the hardener pack into the base container. Mix using a slow speed power mixer until homogeneous. For all products, mix using a slow speed power mixer for two minutes or until a uniform colour is achieved in the grout. Placing The mixed grout should be poured steadily from one side only to eliminate the entrapment of air. Continuous grout flow is essential. Sufficient 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. With the smaller 300ml kit size a nozzle is provided so that when mixed can be squeezed or poured into small gaps or hairline cracks above 0.25mm. Please refer to the Conbextra Epoxy Grouts Application Guide for further information. This is available from the website or your local Parchem branch. Flow characteristics The maximum distance of flow is governed by the gap thickness, the head of grout applied and the ambient temperature. Cleaning All tools and equipment should be cleaned immediately after use with Parchem Solvent. Spillages should be absorbed with sand or sawdust and disposed in accordance with local regulations. Temperature During application Conbextra EP10 grouting may be carried out without special precautions at ambient temperatures from 5°C - 25°C. In service Conbextra EP10 is completely resistant to frost and sub zero teperatures. It is also suitable in service up to 45°C.
