What are grouts and fixings used for on bridges?
Remedial works on concrete bridge structures often include the requirement for void filling, fixing and sealing or bedding and grouting with free flowing materials. Typical examples are concrete repairs using formwork, high precision grouting under bridge bearing plates, or for cable duct grouting. Additionally flowable resin and cement grouts are used to fix manholes or other steel frames and equipment, where rapid hardening materials are usually required to reduce closure times.
