TARGET Portland Expanding Non-Shrink Grout consists of accurately weighed Portland cement, non-metallic aggregate, expanding agents and admixtures. These materials are pre-blended, and require only mixing with water before use.
These materials are pre-blended, and require only mixing with water before use. In normal working temperature ranges of 10°C to 30°C (50°F to 86°F), the grout has a slight expansion prior to final set and is designed for use at dry pack, plastic, flowable or fluid consistencies. It also contains other admixtures to give non-shrink properties after final set has occurred to meet the requirements of ASTM 1107, Grade C, and US Corps of Engineers Specification CRD-C621. The grout contains no chlorides or other admixtures, which could aggravate corrosion of reinforcing steel or prestressing steel cables.

Grouting under columns, base plates, sole plates and machinery not subjected to heavy impact or dynamic loadings or vibrations. For applications involving such loads consult Target Products Ltd.
Grouting of prestressed or post-tensioned tendons, anchor bolts, or cables.
Grouting of post-tensioned structural sections.
