Terraset® grout is a low-viscosity, chemical grout system used for ground consolidation and stabilization of foundations and footings located on fine to medium sands. Other important uses include control of water inflow into shafts and tunnels during excavation, pre-grouting of TBM/EPBM tunnel headings, formation of impervious grout curtains to contain pollution by hazardous waste, and cut-off walls into alluvial deposits at dam sites.
The Terraset® System is a completely water soluble process consisting of two components:
On a volume basis, the amount of Terraset® Component B - hardener needs to range from 10% to 15% based on the sodium silicate concentration. The higher hardener concentration gives the most durable gels. Gel time of the mixed grout solution is approximately 12 minutes at 70°F. The resulting gels are homogeneous, dense and well structured.
