Ultrafine Cement Grout Excels at Colorado School of Mines Field Day

Posted in Geotechnical

It happens only once a year. Colorado School of Mines (Golden, CO) hosts a week long short-course on grouting. It’s attended by Who’s Who in the geotechnical grouting industry.

On the afternoon of June 19, 2013, the school hosted a Field Day and participants were able to view a live demonstration of the permeability of different grouts through Sand Column Testing. I’m pleased to announce, US Grout’s Ultrafine Cement excelled over other cement grouts by reaching the top of the sand column (60 inches) in just 80 seconds. No other cement grout came close.

The team at US Grout of Brian Jeppeson and Brad Hess are always researching ways to improve their products. What specifically improved the performance this year for US Grout? Two factors: Ultrafine is the only pumice-based cement grout; a new Polycarboxylate super-plasticizer to be released soon. Innovation is alive and well at US Grout and Avanti excited to be their exclusive partner for technical support, estimating and product delivery.
