Bacel® Hardfoam is a unique lightweight industrial engineering grout used for void filling, both above ground and below ground.
Bacel® Hardfoam is a unique lightweight industrial engineering grout used for void filling, both above ground and below ground. It’s pre-expanded before placement and gel time is between 10-50 minutes, application dependent. In pressure filling applications it will displace residual liquids and neutralise hydro-carbons, rendering petrochemical installations safe. Filling can be done in 1.5 to 2 metre lifts. Combined with a one hour restart time to prevent slump, up to 6 lifts per day are possible. Average diameter shafts and mines can be filled at approx 10 vertical metres per normal day.
Lightweight with good comparable strength. Density is 20-70kg per m³ and Ultimate Compressive Strength is 100 – 280 Kpa
Displaces residual liquids, (hydrophobic) during installation
Can be applied under water, (behind seawalls, etc)
Good thermal insulation value. Lambda range less than 0.03W/mK (less than Rockwool)
Ease of removal, can be cut with handsaw and mechanically removed
Absorbs Hydro-carbons in preference to H2O
Vermin proof and resistant to ageing & rotting even under extreme climatological conditions
All air-driven delivery means the equipment can safely be used in hazardous areas
Can be recycled for agricultural purposes and can be disposed of in landfill.
