Solution Grout vs Suspension Grout

 In Blog

There are two types of grout that you are most likely to use with your construction project: suspension grout or solution grout.

Here, we explain the basics of what these two products are, as well as where, when and how you should use them.

The Grout SpecialistsWhat is suspension grout?

Solution grout typically mixes multiple materials, such as cement and clay, into a liquid fluid. These grouts are often considered to have a wide range of uses, from new construction to building rehabilitation. The particulate size is highly dependent on the the rate of grinding effort during the clinker process.

The finest cements may have a particulate size of three to five microns, although others could be as thick as 15 microns. Professionals in this industry will be able to recommend the optimum thickness for your solution grout.

The finest cement will stablize the structures of tunnels, subways or dams. Such projects often require substantial levels of grout.

Solution grouts

Solution grouts are simpler to construct and are therefore cheaper work. They are often used in a combination with suspension grouts, although they have solitary use in more basic projects. Among the most popular grouts are silicates, acrylics and polyurethanes. Each have their own unique use.

This is also referred to as ’emulsion grout’. These are most similar in substance to suspension grout, although they are more sensitive to extreme high and low temperatures. As such, they’re unlikely to be suitable for use at great depths.

An experienced knowledgeable grout supplier will be in the best position to recommend the best grout for your needs. They’ll also be able to provide reliable tips on installation techniques.
