Mapefill GP is a pre-blended powdered grout based on high strength cement, 1mm diameter graded aggregates and special additives with an expansive agent that has been specifically formulated by the Mapei research and development team.
Due to this unique expansive agent, Mapefill GP is characterised by a total absence of shrinkage in the plastic and hardened phase and develops early flexural and compressive strength.
When mixed with water, Mapefill GP is transformed into a very highly fluid grout without segregation that is able to fill intricate spaces. However, once dry, Mapefill GP has excellent impermeability to water, superior adhesion to reinforced steel and concrete, a high resistance to dynamic mechanical stress with elasticity and thermal expansion characteristics similar to those of a high quality concrete.
This all purpose grout is recommended for grouting voids in structural reinforced concrete elements and filling gaps in precast elements, and grouting base plates and structurally loaded plates. Other uses for this grout include:
Anchoring of mechanical equipments.
Anchoring of steel bars.
Filling of rigid joints between elements in concrete and precast concrete structures.
Execution of underpinning.
Pressure grouting of concrete structures.
Grouting of machine baseplates
In addition, Mapefill GP does not contain metal aggregates or aluminium dust, which means it is non-toxic, non-corrosive and chloride free, providing a safer work environment for the installer.
This is a highly engineered grout that offers contractors the superior quality and performance they expect of a Mapei product and forms an essential part of our complete concrete repair range of products all complying with the principals of EN 1504 added Steve Price, Building Product Manager at Mapei.
