SYNTECH GROUT EP is a solvent-free fluid epoxy mortar consisting of epoxy resins, special additives and selected aggregates of varying granulometry to restore structures in reinforced concrete, concrete paving, to create rigid joints, high-strength anchors and bar grouting. It is easily applied via simple pouring, to create layers of up to 5 mm in thickness.

SYNTECH GROUT EP is specifically formulated to ensure tenacious adhesion to the substrate. It is characterised by its high mechanical resistance, friction and abrasion resistance. It is anti-shrinkage and effectively resists industrial atmospheres, not being at risk from the effects of atmospheric agents and aggressive chemicals. Being solvent-free, it is safe for users and the environment, also being applicable in indoor environments in progress. It is easily applied by pouring and has a good workability time. An anti-slip finish is easily achieved by applying a dusting of quartz.
Some important characteristics include:
- Hardened prism density (UNI EN 12190): 2.1 kilograms/litre
- Shake table workability (UNI EN 13395/1): 280 mm
- Touch dry: 2 hours at 20° C – 4 hours at 10° C
- Passable with trolleys: after 4 hours at 20° C – after 8 hours at 10° C
Approximately 2 kilograms/square metre of SYNTECH GROUT EP for each millimetre of thickness to be achieved.
SYNTECH GROUT EP is used to restore reinforced concrete and cement structures. Thanks to its ease of use, it is ideal for restoration work on deteriorated flooring such as the regularisation of uneven areas where lumps, heavy objects falling or the friction of moving vehicles has caused gaps (especially near the contraction joints), erosion or the loss of the wear layer. Thanks to its mechanical characteristics, it is ideal for high-strength anchor castings, rebar grouting, metal pins and studs, both indoors and outdoors.
The surfaces to be treated must be clean, free from oil, grease, efflorescence, dust and crumbly parts that could affect adhesion. Slight moisture in the surface is tolerated so long as there are no stagnations of water that must be removed. In the case of application at low temperatures, the area must be insulated and protected with mobile guards to create heated environments. Do not apply with ambient or substrate temperatures below 5° C. Vertically cut the perimeter of the areas to be repaired. If applying SYNTECH GROUT EP for repairs with significant thickness, attach a suitable reinforcing metal mesh to the surface with nails for concrete or with dowel bars secured with epoxy adhesive in specific holes.
Mix the contents of the drums before use. Add components A and B in the special container and slowly mix with a whisk for at least 3–4 minutes, until a homogeneous mixture is obtained, free from lumps and air bubbles. It is possible to withdraw partial quantities from the packages but only by carefully weighing the two components to exactly respect the proportions of the two components stated on the packaging so as to prevent any errors in the mixing ratio that would cause incorrect hardening. Immediately after mixing, apply SYNTECH GROUT EP for casting, preparing – where necessary – a formwork that is suitably disarmed with polyethylene sheets to contain the jet. If metal elements are used to channel the casting, they must also be protected with polyethylene sheeting or silicone release agent to prevent the adhesion of the product. For horizontal grouting or to fill cracks or cavities, be sure to confine the mortar then pour the product, taking care to slightly vibrate to promote air release. On horizontal surfaces, use a toothed trowel to help with the distribution of SYNTECH GROUT EP. When repairing concrete floors, pass a roller to eliminate any air that may be incorporated during mixing. In the bar grouting or other metal elements, slowly and repeatedly insert and extract an iron wire into the cast section in order to facilitate the release of air. To clean tools, use special epoxy thinner. Once hardened, SYNTECH GROUT EP can only be removed by mechanical means. To make thicknesses greater than 5 mm, it is recommended to pour several times, with intervals of at least 4 hours.
