Sika Grout 212 is cementitious grouts containing carefully formulated blends of natural aggregates and other materials, plus Sika admixtures which enable them to achieve high early age strengths. Sika Grouts have been designed to incorporate a two-stage process that counteracts the effects of shrinkage often associated with cement grouts.

Sika Grouts contain materials that provide positive expansion in the plastic phase and shrinkage compensation once hardened.

Sika Grouts are normally used in details where the material can be confined and restrained during placement and curing to optimise these characteristics.

Sika Grout 212 is a one component grout and only requires the addition of clean, fresh water.

Sika Grout 212 is ideal for many types of structural grouting applications. It can be mixed at different stages of fluidity to produce the desired level of workability. Add the required amount of water for:

  • Rammable dry pack material.
  • Trowel applied medium flow mortar.
  • Pourable high flow grout. Typical applications for Sika Grout 212 are:
  • Under machine foundations and base plates.
  • General cavities, voids and recesses
  • Grouts for anchor bolts, ground anchors, rods, etc.
  • Reinforcement ducts in the connection detail between precast columns and beams

Sika Grouts offer the following advantages:

  • Positive shrinkage compensation.
  • High early age strength development.
  • High final strengths.
  • Excellent substrate adhesion.
  • Adjustable consistency.
  • High flow characteristics.
  • Controlled bleeding and segregation while plastic.
  • Ideal for use in pre-packed aggregate systems of repair - Sika Grout 215.
  • Non-corrosive, non-toxic.
  • Impact and vibration resistant.
  • Increased resistance to aggressive liquid penetration when hardened

All grease, oil laitance, ice or snow and any foreign deposits shall be removed from all surfaces with which the grout 
will come in contact. The concrete foundation shall be roughened to the extent that it does not present a smooth surface, which would impede the bond of the grout to the foundation. All dust and loose particles shall be removed by
sandblasting, high pressure waterblasting or other suitable means.

Concrete foundations less than 28 days old shall be kept wet for at least 12 hours, and older foundations for a minimum of 24 hours before placing grout (SSD condition). All free-standing water shall be removed from concrete surfaces prior to grouting. All items to be grouted into place shall be properly positioned and anchored prior to grouting except for anchor bolts and dowels, which may be placed into the fresh grout if job conditions permit and at the discretion of the engineer in charge. For grouting of base plates the formwork used to contain the grout shall be constructed in a workmanlike
manner and caulked to prevent leakage of grout. Provisions shall be made at the high points for air to be vented as it is 
displaced by grout.
Mix using a heavy duty low-speed drill (300 - 450 rpm) and mixing paddle (Jiffy or Exomixer®) or in a grout mixer. The size of the mixer should be appropriate to the volume of grout required. Use a minimum amount of water consistent with placeability requirements. After all dry product has been added to the water, continue mixing for three (3) minutes. For application greater than 150 mm (6 in) in thickness, add up to 12 kg (26.5 lb) of 10 mm (3/8 in) coarse aggregate. The aggregate must be non-reactive (reference ASTM C1260, C227, and C289), clean, well-graded, saturated surface dry, have
low absorption, high density and comply with ASTM C33, size number 8 per table 2.

The prepared grout may be pumped or transported to the forms in buckets or wheelbarrows and deposited without delay. External vibration and agitation of the grout in the forms is permitted. Grout having been prepared but not placed
within one (1) hour after preparation shall be discarded. Prepared grout shall be agitated until use. Several hours after 
placement of grout (depending on ambient temperatures) forms may be removed and exposed grout shoulders may be trimmed or shaped to desired finish. 
Dry pack application:
Refer to the Sika Cementitious Grouting Method Statement. 
As per ACI 308 recommendations for cement concrete, curing is required. To achieve performance consistent with Technical Data, curing must be provided by recognized curing methods, such as wet burlap covered with white
polyethylene film, misting with water, or approved water-based curing compound, such as Sika® Florseal WB-18 & -25.

Usage of Sika® Ultracure DOT
TM or NCFTM wet curing blankets is also strongly recommanded. Curing must commence immediately after placing and finishing. Protect freshly applied grout from direct sunlight, wind rain and frost.
Clean Up
Clean all tools and equipment immediately after use with water. Once hardened, material can only be removed manually or mechanically. Wash soiled hands and skin thoroughly in hot soapy water or use Sika® Hand Cleaner towels.
- Important: protect stored material from exposure to rain, condensation and high humidity as moisture may penetrate packaging, causing lumps.
For best results, condition product to temperatures ranging from 18 to 29 °C (65 to 84 °F) prior to mixing and installation. Lower temperatures may result in slower strength development and longer cure times.
Maintain wet grout, ambient and substrate temperatures between 5 - 32 °C (41 - 89 °F) for a period of 72 hours after placing, unless using Sikacem® Accelerator in mix (refer to Technical Data section).
-  SikaGrout®-212 must be protected from freezing during setting.
Minimum application thickness (neat without additional aggregate): 25 mm (1 in).
Maximum application thickness (neat without additional aggregate): 150 mm (6 in). Thicker applications are possible with the addition of suitable aggregate. Contact Sika Canada.
For anchor bolt/dowel grouting, hole diameter should be 25 mm (1 in) greater than bar diameter.
-  Anchor bolt/bar holes should be pre-dampened for a period of one (1) hour prior to grouting. Holes must be in saturated surface dry (SSD) condition at time of grouting.
 Do not use as a patching or overlay mortar or in unconfined areas.
 Use only potable water.
 Extending with aggregates will reduce compressive and flexural strengths. Dimensions and grading of aggregates will influence effect on physical properties; pre-testing is recommended.3-440
