PAC-IT

EXPANSIVE DRY PACK GROUT
Provides an easily workable, non-ferrous, non-gaseous, non-shrink grout application where the use of forms is impractical.

SEALTIGHT PAC-IT Packable Grout is a non-ferrous, non-gaseous, non-shrink grout formula specifically developed for its excellent workability and application, where forms are not required.

Technical Description
SEALTIGHT PAC-IT Packable Grout is a non-ferrous, non-gaseous, non-shrink grout specifically formulated for grouting where the use of forms to contain the grout is impractical (such as in vertical or overhead applications). PAC-IT is a premixed, low-slump, non-gaseous grout offering high density and strength. PAC-IT offers excellent workability and high one-day strengths in addition to the non-shrink property.

Uses
PAC-IT is ideal for grouting column bases, precast walls, panels, beams, pretensioned or post-tensioned prestressed member applications.

Advantages and Benefits

bulletFurnished premixed...ready-to-use...just add water
bulletOffers high density and high one-day strengths with non-shrink characteristics
bulletMixes quickly and easily to desired consistency right on the jobsite
bulletFeatures excellent workability
bulletRequires no separate bonding agent...bonding agent is an integral part of the bag's content
bulletForms are not required
bulletSaves time and money

Application Tools

 

 
Concrete Mixing Pan

 
Mortar Mixer

 
Pointed Trowel

 
Hammer and 2"x 4" (for rodding)

Application
All grouting should be done using established concreting procedures according to American Concrete Institute reccommendations: ACI 351.1R-93 "Grouting for Support of Equipment and Machinery."

SURFACE PREPARATION: All grout surfaces must be clean, dry and completely free of laitance, oil, grease, other coatings and any other contamination. Unsound concrete must be chipped out, leaving surface level, but rough. Grout area should be saturated surface dry (SSD) prior to grouting. Remove excess water before grouting.

MIXING: Small quantities of PAC-IT Grout may be hand mixed in a concrete mixing pan until lump-free. For large quantities, mix using a mortar mixer with rubber-tipped blades for a minimum of 3 minutes. Use minimum water required to produce desired placement consistency.
  Appropriate requirements per bag: 
  7 pts. (3.3 liters) for stiff consistency 
8 pints (3.79 liters) for plastic consistency  

Mix in 2 steps...add 2/3 of water requirement...add grout...after partial mixing, add remainder of water for desired consistency. Thoroughly mix total quantity for 3 to 5 minutes.
Do not mix more than can be placed in 30 minutes.

PLACEMENT: PAC-IT can be placed by packing or rodding.

CURING: If utilized, forms may be removed after grout has hardened to final set. Prevent rapid loss of water by covering with wet burlap during first 48 hours or apply appropriate SEALTIGHT Curing, or Curing and Sealing Compound. (We suggest SEALTIGHT 1640-WHITE or CS-309-1315.

Coverage
Each bag of PAC-IT yields 0.43 cubic feet (0.012 cubic meters) of in-place grout using the water ratio level shown above. Note: For grouting application requiring a more flowable material, use SEALTIGHT 588 Non-Ferrous, Non-Shrink Grout.
MAXIMUM ECONOMY FOR LARGE AND DEEP APPLICATIONS
Cost reductions can be realized when grouting large areas by the addition of washed, dried and graded pea gravel. For thickness over 2"...add up to 25%, 3/8" pea gravel.

Packaging
50 lb. (22.68 kg) moisture-resistant bags
Storage
Store indoors off the ground. Keep dry for a shelf life of 12 months.
If material is hard or contains lumps, discard in appropriate manner.

Precautions
Refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for complete Health and Safety Information.
