MasterFlow 885: High-precision, non-shrink metallic aggregate grout with extended working time

Formerly: Embeco 885

How does MasterFlow 885 work?

MasterFlow 885 is a cement-based metallic aggregate grout with extended working time. It is ideally suited for grouting machines or plates requiring optimum toughness and precision load-bearing support, including machine bases subject to thermal movement.

Recommended uses:

  • Compressors, turbines and generators
  • Pump bases and drive motors
  • Pulverizers
  • Tank bases
  • Conveyors
  • Roller mills and crushers
  • Stamping and grinding equipment
  • Grouting anchor bolts, rebar and dowel rods

What are the unique features of MasterFlow 885?

  • High strength and impact resistance
  • Pumpable
  • High tolerance for wetting and drying cycles
  • Non-shrink
  • Sulfate resistant for use in marine, wastewater, and sulfate-containing soil environments
  • MasterFlow 885 grout meets the requirements of ASTM C 1107 and the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers CRD C 621, Grades B and C.
  • Freeze/thaw resistant making it suitable for exterior applications

What are the benefits of MasterFlow 885?

  • High fluidity for ease of placement; self-consolidating
  • Extended 30 minute working time ensures proper placement under a variety of conditions
  • Hardens free of bleeding, segregation, or settlement shrinkage to provide maximum effective bearing area for optimum load transfer
  • High tolerance to thermal movement, effects of heating and cooling making MasterFlow 885 ideal for harsh manufacturing environments
  • High quality well-graded blend of metallic and quartz aggregate provides high strength, impact resistance; handles dynamic and repetitive loads
