General purpose non-shrink cementitious grout


CGP general purpose grouting is used where it is essential to eliminate shrinkage when completely filling the void between a base plate and a substrate. Such an appli- cation would be the grouting of a stanchion and machinery- base plates. It can also be used for anchoring a wide range of fixings. These include masts, anchor bolts, fence posts and around pipe sleeves.



● Gaseous expansion system compensates for shrinkage and settlement in the plastic state.

● No metallic iron content to cause staining.

● Prepackaged material overcomes potential on-site batching variations.

● Develops high early strength without the use of chlo- rides.

● High ultimate strength and low permeability ensure the durability of the hardened grout.


Standards compliance

CGP meets or exceeds the test requirements of ASTM C 1107.


CGP cementitious grout is supplied as a ready to use dry powder. The addition of a controlled amount of clean water produces a flowing non-shrink grout for gap thickness- es up to 100 mm.

CGP is a blend of Portland cement, graded fillers and chemical additives which impart controlled expansion in the plastic state whilst minimising water demand. The low water demand ensures high early strength. The graded filler is designed to assist uniform mixing and produce a consist- ent grout.

The following results were obtained at a water:powder ratio of 0.18 and under laboratory working conditions (Temperature 25°C ± 2).



Performance specification

All grouting where shown on the drawing must be carried out with a pre-packaged cement based product which is chlo- ride-free.

It shall be mixed with clean water to the required consistency.

The plastic grout must not bleed or segregate.

A positive volumetric expansion shall occur while the grout is plastic by means of a gaseous system.

The compressive strength of the grout must exceed 50N/mm2 at 7 days and 60 N/mm2 at 28 days.

The storage, handling and placement of the grout must be in strict accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Supplier specification

All grouting where shown on the drawing must be carried out using CGP manufactured by Tasir and used in accordance with the manufacturer’s data sheet.

Instructions for use


Concrete surface

The substrate surface must be free from oil, grease or any loosely adherent material. If the concrete surface is defective or has laitance, it must be cut back to a sound base. Bolt holes and fixing pockets must be blown clean of any dirt or debris.


For a minimum of 2 hours prior to grouting, the area of cleaned substrate should be flooded with fresh water. Imme- diately before grouting takes place, any free water should be removed. Particular care should be taken to blow out all bolt holes and pockets.

Base plate

It is essential that this is clean and free from oil, grease or scale. Air pressure relief holes should be provided to allow venting of any isolated high spots.

Levelling shims

If these are to be removed after the grout has hardened, they should be treated with a thin layer of grease.


The formwork should be constructed to be leakproof. This can be achieved by using foam rubber strip or mastic sealant beneath the constructed formwork and between joints.

In some cases it is practical to use a sacrificial semi-dry sand and cement formwork. The formwork should include outlets for pre-soaking.

Unrestrained surface area

This must be kept to a minimum. Generally the gap width between the perimeter formwork and the plate edge should not exceed 75 mm on the pouring side and 25 mm on the opposite side. It is advisable where practical to have no gap at the flank sides.


For best results a mechanically powered grout mixer should be used. When quantities up to 50 kg are used, a slow speed drill fitted with a  Mixing Paddle  should be used. Larger quantities will require a high shear vane mixer. Do not use a colloidal impeller mixer.

To enable the grouting operation to be carried out continuous- ly, it is essential that sufficient mixing capacity and labour are available. The use of a grout holding tank with provision to gently agitate the grout may be required.

Consistency of grout mix

The quantity of clean water required to be added to a 25 kg bag to achieve the desired consistency is given below.


The selected water content should be accurately measured into the mixer. The total contents of the CGP bag should be slowly added and continuous mixing should take place for 5 minutes. This will ensure that the grout has a smooth even consistency.


To gain full benefit of the expansion process and flow, place the grout as soon as the mixing process is complete. Typically at 25°C ambient temperature place the mixed grout within 15 minutes. At 35°C ambient temperature, place within 10 minutes of mixing.

CGP can be placed in a minimum thickness of 10mm up to a maximum thickness of 100mm in a single pour when used as an underplate grout. For thicker sections it is necessary to fill out CGP with well graded 10mm, silt free aggregate to minimise exotherm. If bulking with aggre- gate is used the ratio shall not exceed 1:1. Contact Taizheng for details of pre-bagged supply. The properties of a bulked grout will differ from those published in this data sheet.

Any bolt pockets must be grouted prior to grouting between the substrate and the base plate.

Continuous grout flow is essential. Sufficient grout must be prepared before starting. The time taken to pour a batch must be regulated to the time taken to prepare the next one.

Pouring should be from one side of the void to eliminate any air or pre-soaking water becoming trapped under the base- plate. It is advisable to pour the grout across the shortest distance of travel. The grout head must be maintained at all times so that a continuous grout front is achieved.

Where large volumes have to be placed CGP may be pumped. A heavy duty diaphragm pump is recommended for this purpose. Screw feed and piston pumps may also be suitable.


On completion of the grouting operation, exposed areas should be thoroughly cured. Suggest curing with Concure 1315. There is no need to remove Concure 1315 as it will provide some protection and won’t yellow. If using wet Hes- sian and plastic sheeting then leave for at least seven days– especially if exposed to sunlight.


CGP should be removed from tools and equipment with clean water immediately after use. Cured material can be removed mechanically, or with Acid Etch*.

Sampling procedure

Cementitious grouts cannot be tested as concrete. Special sampling procedure are required refer to your local Fosroc office for further details.

Typical hopper system

Removable hopper: For larger pours the grout may be hand placed or pumped into a removable hopper (trough).


High temperature working

It is suggested that, for temperatures above 35°C, the follow- ing guidelines are adopted as good working practice:

(i) Store unmixed material in a cool (preferably temperature controlled) environment, avoiding exposure to direct sun- light.

(ii) Keep equipment cool, arranging shade protection if neces- sary. It is especially important to keep cool those surfaces of the equipment which will come into direct contact with the material itself.

(iii) Try to eliminate application during the hottest times of the day and in direct sunlight.

(iv) Make sufficient material, plant and labour available to ensure that application is a continuous process.

(v) Water (below 20°C) should be used for mixing the grout prior to placement.


- Should not be placed in any unrestrained situation. However, can be used for bolt holes or pockets. For further details contact Taizheng.




CGP has a shelf life of 12 months if kept in a dry store in sealed bags. If stored in high temperature and high humidity locations the shelf life will be reduced.


Health and safety

CGP is alkaline and should not come into contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of dust during mixing.

Gloves, goggles and dust mask should be worn.

If contact with skin occurs, wash with water. Splashes to eyes should be washed immediately with plenty of clean water and medical advice sought.


CGP is non-flammable.
