Applications

Preparation:

  • All materials should be stored at 7.2°C to 27°C 24 hours prior to installation.
  • All grout access ports must be free of any obstructions, dirt, grease, oil or other contaminants.

Note: It is the responsibility of the installer/applicator to ensure the suitability of the product for its intended use.

Job Mockups:

The manufacturer requires that when its ProSpec® products are used in any application or as part of any system that includes other manufacturers’ products, the contractor and/or design professional shall test all the system components collectively for compatibility, performance and long-term intended use in accordance with pertinent and accepted industry standards prior to any construction.

Installation:

  • Ideal mixed product temperature at placement is 18º- 24ºC, where the initial setting time is 7-15 minutes. Higher temperatures will shorten setting time, while lower temperatures will extend setting time.
  • Hot Weather: Keep Slab Bedding Grout Rapid cool and adjust using ProSpec® Set Extender.
  • Cold Weather: Do not use antifreeze. Warm water can be used.

Mixing (at 4.4-24°C):

  • Mix as close to the area being installed as possible.
  • Use 6.0-6.3 qt. (5.7-6.0L) clean potable water per 16 kg. bag.
  • Place the potable water into a mortar mixer or similar mechanical mixer and add the grout while mixing. Due to the ultra-rapid setting feature of Slab Bedding Grout Rapid, do not mix by hand.
  • Mix for about 2 minutes to a lump-free consistency.
  • Do not re-temper or add extra water after mixing is complete.
  • To achieve optimum flow, continuous agitation is required.

Note: The water quantities shown are approximate and may vary slightly with type of equipment and application conditions.
Mixing (at 27-38°C):
Application:

The optimum placement air and temperature range is 18 - 24°C. For applications above this range of temperatures, use ProSpec® Set Extender to adjust the set time.

  • Slab Bedding Grout Rapid is installed by pumping into the grout distribution system cast into each slab.
  • The grout is very fluid, but will take a short while to disperse beneath the slab, so that the port will need to be refilled occasionally until the level ceases dropping in the port.
  • Continue with the pumping of grout into each distribution channel until all the channels in each slab are grouted.

Note: The water quantities shown are approximate and may vary slightly with type of equipment and application conditions
