About AV-100 Chemical Grout
AV-100® Chemical Grout (Acrylamide) is a chemically reactive grout designed to stabilize soil and prevent water infiltration into various underground structures by creating a durable, long-lasting water barrier on the exterior of the structure. Cured AV-100 provides excellent soil stabilization and prevents water from infiltrating the structure.

“Avanti started with only one product in 1978—AV-100® Chemical Grout—which was primarily used to stop water leaks in municipal sewer lines. Over the years, Avanti has expanded its product line to meet the needs of different industries and applications. However, AV-100 continues to play a vital role in not only municipal applications but also industrial and geotechnical settings” says Britt N. Babcock, PE, President of Avanti. “AV-100 (acrylamide) has been used safely and successfully around the globe for over 50 years which is a testament to its reliability and effectiveness. Avanti's commitment to obtaining NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 certification for AV-100® Chemical Grout further highlights its suitability for use in multiple applications.”
