Colorado School of Mines Short Course - Field Day Success!
by Britt Babcock
During the first week of May 2017, both Avanti and our strategic partner Hess Pumice participated in the Underground Grouting and Ground Improvement Course at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado. During the field day demonstrations, we had the opportunity to inject US Grout’s Ultrafine VX into two grout columns and Nittetsu’s Superfine injected into one of the columns.
Both US Grout’s Ultrafine VX and Nittetsu's Superfine have an average particle size of 3 microns. In the image to the right, US Grout’s Superfine VX outperformed the Nittetsu grout at 1:1 w/c ratio. At the 2:1 w/c ratio, US Grout also performed exceptionally.
Congratulations from the Avanti Team to Hess Pumice for developing a fantastic, high performing, US domestically manufactured cement grout!
*For over 20 years, US Grout and Avanti have partnered to bring the grouting community patented pumice-Pozzolan based Ultrafine Cement. Avanti is the exclusive distributor for US Grout Ultrafine products.*
