About MasterFlow 9650
MasterFlow 9650 is a high-strength bulk supplied grout for offshore wind foundations. It is especially formulated for foundations which are anchored to the seabed in boreholes. Due to its rapid hardening, the material is also ideally suited for grouting works in very short weather windows.
MasterFlow 9650 is the first ever blended grout that comes with a Type Approval Certificate for load carrying rock socket grouted connections. The material is also suitable for load carrying cylindrical grouted connections like monopiles using bolted connections.
