TUFCHEM® Grout

DESCRIPTION

TUFCHEM Grout is a three-component, 100% solids, epoxy grouting compound. It is designed for grouting machine bases and other equipment or load bearing bases where it is vital to retain exact alignment or where vibration or shock could cause equipment to break loose from weaker grouts. It is ideal for applications which require a low shrinkage, high strength grout that is also chemically resistant. TUFCHEM Grout is authorized for use by USDA in federally inspected meat and poultry plants. For complete installation instructions, consult Corrosion Engineering installation specification CES-360.

AREAS OF USE

TUFCHEM Grout can be used in grouting many types of reciprocating heavy equipment and/or where heavy loads, high impact, and vibrations are factors. These include:

  • Anchor bolts
  • Pedestals
  • Mixers
  • Compressors
  • Conveyors
  • Filters
  • Generators
  • Leveling blocks
  • Fans
  • Pumps
  • Crushers
  • Milling machines
  • Dowels
  • Building columns
  • Stamping machines
  • Ball mills
  • Blowers
  • Packaging machines
  • Centrifuges
  • Forging Machines
  • Paper mill machines

OUTSTANDING FEATURES
