About FasTrac CE815 Epoxy Grout
FasTrac CE815 Epoxy Grout is a three-component, 100% solids, high-performance, epoxy machine grout. It is characterized by low dust, high bearing area, low exotherm, negligible shrinkage and creep, fast cure, and excellent flowability.
FasTrac CE815 Epoxy Grout is ideal for high-stress applications such as wind turbines, gas transmission, refining, chemical processing, pulp and paper, crane rail, marine, and other machine base plate grouting. New equipment installations or re-grouting applications subject to chemical attack and extreme vibration are ideal for CE815 Epoxy Grout. CE815 can also be used as an anchoring adhesive.
How does FasTrac CE815 Compare to the Competition?
Each epoxy grout was tested using the following ASTM Standards:
ASTM C579 Method B, Load Rate II
A sample of each epoxy grout was mixed according to ASTM recommended method at an average material & ambient temperature of 82 degrees Fahrenheit. The flow box was set at a 2” depth and the epoxy grout mix was then poured into the flow box hopper. After waiting 5-minutes, the flow box gate was lifted, allowing the grout to flow through the trough. As soon as the grout contacted the backplate, the time was recorded. The faster the time, the higher the rate of flow.
The fastest Flow Box Times were achieved by Chockfast Versaflow (10.25), FasTrac CE815 (10.45), and Five Star DP (26.62). The Versaflow and CE815 times are incredibly close! They are off by 0.2sec and within the margin of error. We look forward to running this test again in the future to determine if the results remain the same.
For 3-Day Compressive Strength, the top performers were Masterbuilder 648 (14,106), FasTrac CE815 (13,456), and Chockfast Red (13,245).
For 7-Day Compressive Strength, the top performers were Masterbuilder 648 (15,629), Five Star DP (14,485), and Chockfast Red (14,200).
