Grouts & Anchors
Our extensive range of MonoGrouts has been specifically optimized for the Indian climate,
providing grouting solutions for a wide range of applications.
Monarch prides itself on offering complete grouting solutions, which is why we have also
sourced and developed some additional specialty grouts, for specific applications.
Grout Application & Consistency Dimensional stabilit
The key requirement for a grout is to completely fill a void and keep it filled indefinitely. For example, effective grouting under a baseplate should result in permanent contact of the hardened grout with the underside of the baseplate. Loads will then be evenly transferred through the grout to the foundations. To describe the contact of the grout with the surface of the plate the term " effective bearing area " (EBA) is used. The EBA is expressed as a percentage. Achieving 100% EBA is difficult, however, a grout that can come close to 100% has benefits to design engineers in critical installations. Simple cement grouts made of basic sand and cement make it difficult to achieve complete and permanent contact. In Monarch's cementitious grouts, expansion or shrinkage compensation additives are used to overcome plastic and initial drying shrinkage. The EBA can be affected by segregation, bleed and shrinkage. In case of our epoxy grouts these have virtually no shrinkage.
Cementitious grouts offer the flexibility of being easy to use and handle on site, combined with the ability to select from a range of high performance grouts depending on the needs of the application.
The features including
Epoxy based grouts are the principal resin materials for void filling. They consist of a base resin and hardener which, when mixed together, react chemically to create strong, durable materials. They have high impact and chemical resistance. High mechanical properties including tensile and bond strengths are achievable with epoxy resins. The flexural and tensile strengths are at least three times higher giving a greater resistance to dynamic forces.
Monarch have developed and sourced a range of specialty grouts to meet specific demands of the construction industry. These range from specialised cable bolt grouts for use in mining and civil applications through to grout admixtures for large back fill grouting. All of these specialty grouts have been developed by Monarch for the Indian market. These grouts are complimented with a soil stabilisation grout that is very effective at stabilising sandy soil applications.
