Note: The data shown above reflects typical results based on laboratory testing under controlled conditions. Reasonable variations from the data shown above may result.
Warning: Consult the Technical Data Sheets and SDS before using.
Installation Instructions: For detailed installation instructions refer to the DeNeef technical bulletin for your application.
Rock-Tite B-3 is designed to be pumped in place using conventional plural component equipment. Thorough mixing is essential for proper cured density. Due to the fast setting characteristics, it is recommended that an impingement type mix system be used.
Injection: During injection the grout will follow the path of least resistance. When the material has stopped penetrating it will continue to expand against the limits of the confined space and compress within itself, forming a dense, closed cell foam.
Extreme conditions: For application procedures in extreme temperatures and specific environments or equipment recommendations call the DeNeef Technical Service Department.
Cleaning: Clean all tools and equipment which have been in contact with the resin with DeNeef Washing Agent before resin has cured. Products should be disposed of according to local, state, and federal laws.
Packaging & Handling
10 gallon (2 x 5 gal. pails)
100 gallon (2 x 50 gal. drums)
Both components should be stored in a dry place at temperatures between 65°F and 80°F. Do not thin with solvents. Confirm product performance in specific chemical environment prior to use. Substrate temperature must be at least 5°F above the dew point.
Health and Safety
Always use protective clothing, gloves and goggles consistent with OSHA regulations during use. Avoid eye and skin contact. Do not ingest. Refer to Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for detailed safety precautions. SDS’s can be obtained from GCP Applied Technologies or from our web site at gcpat.com.
For emergencies, call CHEMTREC 1-800-424-9300.
Rock-Tite B-3 requires very high shear in order to mix properly and should always be run through an impingement type mixer during pumping. Low temperatures will significantly affect viscosity. If site temperatures are extremely low, heat bands or heated water baths may be used on the pails before and during installation to maintain the product’s temperature. Avoid splashing water into open containers, as the material is water activated. Avoid exceeding 90o F when warming.
