Grouting is a profession unto its own, and if you want a professional job well done to support the critical machinery resting on it, you might consider subcontracting the grouting to a reputable grout contractor.
This approach will not add a cost burden to the project, but it will guarantee a trouble-free lifetime installation.
Skid-mounted machines required to be filled with mortar or concrete, creating many voids and gaps and faulty adhesion between the skid and the foundation, generating different scenarios; adjacent concrete slabs with undesired relative movement; stress-related cracks; cold joints; among others.
To directly address all these scenarios and achieving the best results, we developed the ALPHATEC® 300 Epoxy resins serie and the injection procedure, assuring steel-concrete adhesion and a monolithic behaviour of the system.
