Licensed Applicator for BASF Exagrout MasterFlow 9500

FoundOcean is the primary ‘Licensed Applicator’ for BASF’s cement-based Exagrout MasterFlow 9500, which has been specifically designed and validated for use in the installation of offshore wind farms.

MasterFlow 9500 has been tested and validated by licensing bodies for use in grouted connections of offshore foundations, and is the only product that comes with a detailed and grout specific ‘Statement of Compliance’ by DNV.

This ‘fit for purpose’ grout demonstrates impressive properties such as low heat of hydration thus eliminating the risk of thermal cracking, rapid strength build-up even at low temperatures to support increased installation rates and 28 day compressive strengths of 140MPa. In addition, MasterFlow 9500 can be pumped at temperatures as low as 0ºC which means the available installation season can be extended and offshore wind farms can be operational sooner. Finally, and arguably the most important attribute, MasterFlow 9500 exhibits zero autogenous shrinkage, a factor which when significant enough is proven to cause cracking in high-strength concrete structures.
