Sika® Galvashield® Embedding Mortar

Part of the Sika® Galvashield® series


DESCRIPTION

Sika Galvashield Embedding Mortar is a controlled resistivity mortar for use with Sika Galvashield CC anodes. The mortar is designed to provide a low resistance environment around the anode and improved performance.

ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS

  • Easy to use, just add water

  • Controlled resistivity mortar

  • Portland cement based

  • High pH mortar with reservoir of alkali to resist acid generation at the anode

  • High bulk density

  • Free carbonaceous or other oxidizable materials

APPLICATIONS

Sika Galvashield CC anodes are designed to protect steel elements in a structure from corrosion. The Galvashield Embedding Mortar is used in conjunction with the anodes. The mortar is used to grout anodes in vertical or horizontal situations. It may also be used to fill grooves which house the anode lead wires.

MIXING

Galvashield Embedding Mortar should be mixed with a slow speed drill (400/500 rpm) and paddle. Suggested mixing: add approximately 3 to 3.5 pints of water to each 11 pound bag of Galvashield Embedding Mortar. Water can be added or deleted to achieve grout consistency desired for placement. Mix for three minutes until fully homogeneous. Mix only as much mortar as can be installed in 20-30 minutes.

INSTALLATION

Remaining water should be blown from the drilled hole using compressed air and Sika Galvashield Embedding Mortar injected by hand pump to the rear of the hole to avoid air entrapment. Ensure sufficient grout is placed in the bottom of the hole to completely embed the entire active length of the Galvashield discrete anode. The thixotropic nature of the Sika Galvashield Embedding Mortar will prevent significant flow from vertical and overhead holes.

Place Sika Galvashield Embedding Mortar within 30 minutes of mixing to gain benefit of the expansion system and allow to cure for a minimum of 24 hours, without physical disturbance.
