ARMOR-GROUT™ is a specially designed VSC epoxy resin with exceptionally high chemical resistance and bonding properties that is combined with a unique VSC blend of natural silica aggregates. The product forms an overlay for severely worn concrete surfaces in pig facilities. It is primarily used to restore heavily worn slats and pads around wet/dry feeders. Site evaluations conducted since 2006 have shown that ARMOR-GROUT™ withstands heavy pig traffic and is virtually unaffected by the corrosive compounds that form around the feeders. This trowel-applied mortar re-shapes the pads or slats providing for protection and proper drainage.
