From monolithic vibration damping ofpump foundations to large reciprocatingcompressors, CHOCKFAST maintains precise, permanent machinery alignment.CHOCKFAST RED general-purpose, high strength deep-pour grout for new installations; quickturnaround retrofits; and fast, convenient quick-cure foundation reconstructionCHOCKFAST GRAY thin-pour groutCHOCKFAST BLUE oil-resistant foundation cap/grout for new installations; also strengthensand seals old foundations, while restoring original heightsCHOCKFAST ORANGE chocks for hot-running machinery; also used to assemble bearings; tomaintain alignment of rails; and as a high-strength groutCHOCKFAST BLACK deep-pour chocks allow a free flow of air under hot-running machinerywhile maintaining permanent frame alignment. Virtually 100% effective bearing areapermanent alignment . chemical resistant . vibration damping . worldwide service

Foundation Systems With Built-in ReliabilityAdvantages of CHOCKFAST RedCHOCKFAST RED is a user-friendly,chemically resistant, low dusting epoxygrout with high compressive, tensileand shear strengths. Excellent compatibility withconcrete and steel minimizes or eliminates horizontal bond-line cracks, common to traditional epoxygrouts.A gentle exothermic reaction during cure reducescast-in stresses and allows single pours up to 48”.(For single pours deeper then 18”, contact aCHOCKFAST Representative.) Deep pours expediteinstallation of new equipment. They also reducecostly downtime for foundation repairs.Low dusting formulation simplifies installationand cleanup procedures.Tools and mortar mixers can be cleaned with water.Low Curing Temperature Prevents ProblemsOf Cast-In Stresses With Chockfast Red200180Temperature, FThis 24-hr cure structural epoxy is formulatedto provide excellent vibration damping for staticand dynamic loads plus permanent monolithicsupport with intimate contact between equipmentbedplates and underlying concrete foundations.Turbogenerator: Installed on thick-pour ChockfastRed and oil-resistant Chockfast Blue160140120100800123456 7Cure Time, Hours89CHOCKFAST BLUE Foundation CapThis multi-purpose grout was developed for use under hot-running machinery. It provides a strong cap and excellent “oil-seal”for new foundations; strengthens and seals old foundations, while restoring their original height; andserves as a substitute for steel soleplates or rails.A gentle exothermic reaction during cure eliminatesexcessive cast-in stresses to reduce or eliminate cracking, common to high exotherm grouts. Lifts of 48” ormore can be poured, allowing savings of 20 days ormore compared to traditional concrete reconstruction.What is a CHOCKFAST Chock?It’s a conveniently pourable structuralepoxy that replaces tediously fittedsteel shims (steel chocks); andassures intimate contact withmachined or unmachined equipmentbedplates.Like steel chocks, these structural epoxies allow afree flow of air under hot-running machinery toreduce “thermal humping” which can cause misalignment when equipment is mounted on full-bedgrouts.With low thermal conductivity, Chockfast chocksreduce heat build-up on foundations. They alsoprovide a high coefficient of friction betweenequipment bedplates and foundations to maintainunsurpassed security of alignment, thus protectingcostly equipment from damage and downtime.Hot-Running Compressor:Installed on Chockfast Black Chocks,supported on Chockfast Blue and Red grouts3
