Engineered Industrial Products Epoxy-Resin Grout
Engineered Industrial Products is the exclusive UK industrial distributor of the Chockfast®® range of epoxy-resin machinery grouts and repair compounds manufactured by ITW Performance Polymers (Europe). The company also offers a contract application service.
Chockfast® grout is a mix of high-strength epoxy-resin compounds developed for the support of any machine, engine, equipment or structure requiring a strong corrosion-resistant base. The system includes a range of pourable resins with complementary uses, allowing individual requirements to be met.
The major advantages of Chockfast® epoxy resin over steel and cement are:
- Simpler to install — therefore speeds up installation
- Will not rust or corrode
- Reduces vibration — therefore increases machinery life and reduces wear and tear
Epoxy-resin grouts for machinery support
The Chockfast® industrial range of machinery grouts has been specifically formulated for supporting critically aligned heavy rotating machinery such as large process compressors, diesel engines, pumps and fans on steel or concrete foundations.
Traditionally this type of machinery has been mounted on steel shims or packing before flooding the base with a cementitous grout. This is a time-consuming and unreliable method now superseded by the use of these new-generation high-strength epoxy-resin grouts, which eliminate the steel packing and the requirement for machined steel sole plates.
Once a machine is supported by Chockfast®, long-term foundation security is guaranteed due to the physical properties and the ‘as cast’ fit of Chockfast®.
Epoxy-resin grouts for industrial structural applications
Chockfast® is not only confined to supporting rotating machinery but is also used to make up gaps between the flanges of beams and columns on structural steelwork or for providing the ‘load path’ between any load-bearing static items where movement cannot be tolerated.
Engineered Industrial Products works closely with its clients in order to offer the optimum solution to their particular foundation problem, and if necessary supplies experienced technicians to supervise others or carry out the work themselves. Our technicians have worked in many countries under all climatic conditions from the offshore North Sea to the Sahara Desert.
