For Heavy & High Vibration Equipment

Versatile

  • Placed in service all over the world in most hostile environments, both hot and cold.
  • No surface bubbling means a uniform, high strength surface.
  • Ideal as a maintenance grout or structural repair grout.
  • Compressive strength tested over 14,000 psi after 2 hours at 180 °F.
  • Foundation properties not affected by freeze-thaw cycles and temperature extremes
  • Grout consistency may be varied from pumpable to flowable to dry pack.

Economical

  • Maintenance-free
  • Minimum downtime with quick and easy placement.
  • Long shelf-life.
  • Moisture insensitive.

Quick and Easy to Use

  • Short cure time means quick placement of machinery.
  • Premeasured 3-component system includes epoxy resin, epoxy catalyst and inert aggregate
  • Components are color-coded for foolproof mixing.
  • Pourable and self-leveling.
  • Pumpable even when aggregate-filled

Safe

  • Meets all OSHA packaging requirements.
  • Low toxicity. Minimum odor and dust nuisance.
  • Can be shipped by air because of its high, non-volatile flashpoint.

Heat: Your Epoxy Grout Enemy

Heat resistance during operating service is the most important physical property for grout. A grout that can’t stand the heat means premature grout failure, lost downtime and lost money. The critical time period for a foundation grout is after two (2) hours at temperatures in excess of 150 °F. After 2 hours, the heat softens most grouts, causing alignment failure. Cooling off the grout will reharden it, but the damage is already done. If the grout does not have high heat deflection, the continuous softening and hardening will allow the machinery to wallow out or lose alignment. The knife test at operating temperatures will indicate if the grout is softening. Some grouts will test in excess of 12,000 psi at ambient temperature, but will test at less than 1,000 psi after 2 hours at 160 °F. Any solvents added to the grout will further decrease the grout’s heat resistance at operating temperatures. Grouts with low flashpoints usually have added solvents.

Wil-Cor, Inc. Takes the Lead in Developing the Best Industrial Materials & Systems

Our Armor Plate 999 Foundation Grout System is just one example of the experience and innovative thinking we use to provide construction and maintenance materials that exceed your requirements. Wil-Cor, Inc. was the first to recommend the use of expansion joints in heavy machinery grout foundations. Wil-Cor, Inc. was also the first to use chopped fiberglass in grout – increasing tensile strength 20%, increasing heat resistance and reducing hairline cracking. Wil-Cor, Inc. – we create the solutions.
