We’ve been a leading supplier of innovative, civil products for two decades now. The Bluey team has worked on countless civil engineering projects, including tunnels, roads construction, utilities, ports and basements among others. This means that we have been exposed to a lot of grout related challenges and we’ve solved a lot too.
What is grout?
Grout is a dense fluid mixture; most commonly used to fill gaps or reinforce existing structures. Grout is neither mortar nor concrete – its state is somewhere in between. While it still contains the same ingredients of cement, water and sand, grout is more fluid than mortar and concrete, which makes it ideal in certain civil engineering applications.
Grout’s fluidity and plasticity are essential, as it is placed in voids and in tight spaces where stability is essential. This is because grout is expected to not only fill the space but also connect to the surface and any associated joints.
In contrast to other structural paste products such as plaster, cement grout can produce excellent durability and low permeability with highly controlled volumetric stability (low shrinkage). At Bluey, we aim to ensure that all grouts are correctly mixed and applied to provide the best outcome for any project.
How to select the right grout
We have a carefully assembled range of grout products as part of the BluCem range. With many leading grouts in stock, we can specify a unique grout solution to your project’s application. During initial investigations and discussions with partners, we establish project expectations and what outcomes are required for the stakeholder. Using this information, we can determine which grout product will add the most value.
Of course, our on-site teams can assess its success and ensure the project runs to budget and on time.
