Parex Cable Grout
Parex Cable Grout is a specially formulated Portland cement powder mix designed for the grouting of cables in post-tensioned concrete for EN 446(2007) and CARES Appendix PT10 procedures.
The mix design consists of a blend of fine and ultra fine cements plus a set of synergistic admixtures. The grout powder is packaged in 20kg durable, moisture resistant bags ready for onsite mixing. The material readily mixes with water to produce a particularly fluid flowing grout which will penetrate and fill fine voids within and around the cables then harden without shrinking to give a high strength product.
Particular advantages of the product include quick and easy mixing with water producing a flowing mix which promotes penetration into confined spaces. The grout is shrinkage compensated and contains a powerful corrosion inhibitor to protect the cables.
Once hardened and cured, high compressive strengths are achieved giving resistance to static and dynamic stresses. Parex Cable Grout has a total chloride, sulphate and sulphide-ion content below that specified in EN 447 and CARES PT10.
