Non-shrink cementitious anchor grout
Cement cartridges were developed to anchor mine and tunnel rock bolts (rebar and threadbar) and to anchor steel dowels in concrete.
- Convenient easy to handle cartridge form
- Fast curing compared to ordinary cement grouts
- Controlled setting times
- No on-site mixing, just immerse in water
- Thixotropic and non-shrink
- No special grout pumping equipment required
- High strength
- Non-toxic, non-combustible and chloride free
- No rotation

Instructions for Use
1. Remove required number of cartridges from package.
2. Immerse cartridges in water until there are no signs of air release (bubbling) from the cartridge. Do not leave for longer than 5 minutes in water.
3. The cement grout will begin to set in 20 minutes after initial water emersion; therefore the bolt must be installed within this time period. However, it is recommended that the wetted cartridges be used within 15 minutes to obtain optimum results.
4. Insert cartridges into a clean hole. Tamp with a loading stick.
5. Insert the bolt. Bolt will rupture the cartridges allowing the grout to fill the annular space between the bolt and the hole. After 12 hours the grout will typically withstand the full yield point load of the deformed bolts or dowels.
25 mm x 305 mm - 50/bag
28mm x 305 mm - 50/bag

38mm x 305 mm - 50/bag
The system consists of an easy to handle cartridge containing a cementitious compound encased in a perforated mylar film package which, when immersed in water, will allow controlled wetting of contents, forming a thixotropic grout. The cartridge is then inserted into the hole and the deformed bolt or dowel is pushed in.
