Lack of consolidation can cause voids, rock pockets, honeycombing, and poor bonding with the rebar.Understand how SCG utilizes the newest water reducing and viscosity modifying admixtures to produce a highly fluid grout with superior properties and contractor installation efficiencies.SCG not only increases the integrity of masonry walls, it decreases a contractor’s labor cost by eliminating the need for mechanical vibration to consolidate and re-consolidate grout.It is recommended to insert the vibrator into concrete at intervals of 24 inches or 8 times the diameter of the tube.When this vibrator is used, the insertion time shall vary between 30 seconds to 2 minutes.
