SIKA: Epoxy Grouts

January 27, 2005
Sika Corp. has announced the introduction of their latest innovation in epoxy grout products.

Sika Corp., an ISO-9002 certified manufacturer of concrete admixtures, construction resins, adhesives, grouts, coatings and sealants serving the concrete repair and protection industries, has announced the introduction of their latest innovation in epoxy grout products. Sikadur 42, Grout-Pak PT is a pre-proportioned, three-component, 100% solids epoxy grout specifically designed with post tensioning construction projects in mind. Often on segmental bridge and parking structure projects where post tensioning of precast concrete members occurs, specifications call for the protection of post tensioning termini (a.k.a. "PT Pourbacks"). Post tension anchorage locations typically require installation of a formed cube of grout, protecting the anchorage from long-term corrosion damage. Sikadur 42, Grout-Pak PT is an epoxy that is resistant to moisture and chemical intrusion, cracking, impact, and stress.
