Foxpack 1700 HS Precision Epoxy Grout


DESCRIPTION

Foxpack 1700 is a high strength, non shrink, 100% solids epoxy grout. Epoxy Resin and specially formulated aggregate produce a fluid, non shrink precision grout. Units are preproportioned for ease of mixing and use on the jobsite. Foxpack 1700 has superior handling and physical characteristics when compared to conventional epoxy grouts.

ADVANTAGES

  • Foxpack 1700 is simple to use. Premeasured proportions allow for precise and repeatable results.
  • Foxpack 1700 is insensitive to moisture and may be used on dry and damp substrates.
  • Pourable consistency - flows easily, self-levels in baseplate forms, anchor bolt holes and floor toppings.
  • Formulation permits placement up to three (3) inches thick.
  • High strengths - 12,000 psi compressive strength in twenty-four (24) hours at 73°F; ultimate strength averages 17,000 psi in twenty eight (28) days.

WHERE TO USE

Foxpack 1700 is used to seat and support reciprocating machinery and other equipment where heavy loads, impact, torque and other operating stresses occur. Typical applications include:

Transportation
Grout Pads
Anchor Bolts
Crane Rails

Industry
Crushers
Millers
Blowers
Lathes

Utilities
Generators
Steam Turbines
Transformers

SURFACE PREPARATION

Proper preparation of the substrate and the contact area of the base plate is essential. Substrate must be both clean and sound. Remove laitance, oils and grease fro m concrete by sandblasting or bush hammering. If possible, sandblast bottom of base plates and wipe clean and dry. Apply grout as soon as possible after cleaning steel surfaces to prevent recurrence of oxidation. (If corrosion resistant primer for steel base plate edges or top surface is required, use FX-408 Epoxy Zinc Rich Primer.)

MIXING

Initial mix temperature must be 50°F minimum. For best performance, mix entire pack. Pour B Component into pail of A component. Mix for two (2) minutes with low speed mixer until uniform. Scrape sides and bottom to ensure complete mixing, avoid entrapping air. Slowly add filler while continuing to mix resin until all is added or desired consistency. Mix additional one (1) minute and place grout.

If less than full unit is required, carefully measure 100 parts Component A and 16 parts Component B by weight and add desired amount of filler. Do not thin Foxpack 1700. Solvent will prevent proper cure, and may cause shrinkage.

APPLICATION

Construct containing form with head box, if necessary. Any form surface in contact with Foxpack 1700 must be coated with release agent. Seal forms tightly to prevent leakage. Leakage that causes grout in place to subside below plate bottom level will cause loss of contact and voids at grout/base plate bottom interface. Re-establishing complete contact will be difficult at best. Be certain that all tools and mixing materials are at hand prior to mixing of Foxpack 1700.

Mix Foxpack 1700 in accordance with mixing instructions. Pour grout into form fro m one side only. Pour continuously while maintaining a minimum of one (1) inch of head above the base plate bottom until grout appears full width of the base plate at opposite side of the form. Continue pouring at a reduced rate until Foxpack 1700 levels at 1/4" above the plate bottom on all sides. Clean equipment with FX Tool & Equipment Cleaner before Foxpack 1700 hardens. If placement depth exceeds three (3) inches, contact Fox Technical Service for assistance.

PACKAGING

Foxpack 1700 is conveniently packaged: "A" Component in a 3.5 gallon pail; "B" Component in a 1 gallon jug and four (4) 50 lb. bags of "C" Component. Yield is 1.75 cubic feet per unit at 4 bags "C" Component. Five (5) bags may be used for economy but will result in very stiff grout. Yield with 5 bags is 2.0 cubic feet.

SHELF LIFE

2 years

CAUTION

"A" Component contains epoxy resin. DANGER! "B" Component contains alkaline amines; strong sensitizer. May cause skin sensitization or other allergic responses. Use with good ventilation, particularly if material is heated or sprayed. Prevent all contact with skin or eyes. Wear protective clothing, goggles, gloves and/or barrier creams. Keep container closed when not in use. Wash thoroughly after handling.

FIRST AID

In case of skin contact, immediately wash with soap and water. In case of eye contact, flush eyes with copious amounts of water for at least fifteen (15) minutes. Remove contaminated clothing shoes. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Wash clothing before reuse.
