805 Construction Grout - Winter Grade

W.R. Meadows Of Canada

Vendor Part # 8062055

Grouting in cold weather is even more hazardous than normal concrete placement operations. This is because the fresh grout is usually placed in relatively thin layers, two or three inches thick, and is in direct contact with cold steel and/or cold foundation concrete. Some warmth is necessary for Portland cement to set but any heat generated by the grout is immediately robbed by these cold confining surfaces. Extremely retarded set, slow strength gain and the possibility of frozen grout can be the result.
