Expansive Dry Pack Grout
PAC-IT packable grout is a non-ferrous, non-shrink grout specifically formulated for grouting applications, without the need for expensive form work. PAC-IT is a pre-mixed, low-slump grout with high density and high strength. PAC-IT offers excellent workability and high one-day strengths in addition to the non-shrink property.
PAC-IT is ideal for grouting column bases, precast walls, panels, beams, pre-tensioned or post-tensioned, pre-stressed member applications.
- Furnished premixed … ready to use … just add water.
- Offers high density and one-day strengths with non-shrink characteristics.
- Mixes quickly and easily to desired consistency right on the jobsite.
- Features excellent workability.
- Requires no bonding agent.
- Forms are not required … saves time and money.
- No Added Chloride or Gypsum.

All technical data is typical information, but will vary due to testing methods, conditions, procedures, batching variations, and raw materials variances.
*Set time, strength development and performance are dependent on temperature; therefore, follow ACI methods during hot or cold weather grouting.
ACI 305R-91 “Standard on Hot Weather Concreting”
ACI 306R-88 “Standard on Cold Weather Concreting”
All grouting should be done using established concreting procedures according to American Concrete Institute recommendations: ACI 351.1R-93 “Grouting for Support of Equipment and Machinery.” Failure to follow all industry standard practices, such as the American Concrete Institute (ACI), will compromise the performance of the PAC-IT and/or grouting system.
This data sheet does not supersede any and/or all engineering, architectural, or equipment manufacturers’ recommendations or drawings. A professional engineer must determine suitability of PAC-IT for grouting, anchoring, doweling, or any other use. This is a not a standalone engineering document. The design configuration or system is the sole responsibility of the licensed design professional for the project, equipment manufacturer, or installing contractor.
Surface Preparation … Mechanically roughen or abrasive blast concrete substrate. Remove all unsound concrete and provide a profiled, porous surface. Substrate must be structurally sound, dust-free, and free of grease, oil, dirt, curing compounds, release agents, or any other surface or penetrated contaminants, coatings, sealers, or similar that will adversely affect bond. Sanding, acid etching, cup-grinding, or wire-abrading are not approved concrete surface preparation methods. Substrate must be rough and profiled, but generally level. Grouting area must be saturated with water two hours prior to grouting to a saturated surface dry condition. Remove all excess water before placing grout.
Mixing … Small quantities of PAC-IT may be hand-mixed in a concrete mixing pan until lump-free. For large quantities, mix using a mortar mixer with rubber-tipped blades for three minutes and until lump-free. Use minimum water required to produce desired placement consistency.
Mixing requirements per bag:
7 pts. (3.3 L) for stiff consistency
8 pts. (3.79 L) for plastic consistency
Mix in two steps. Fist, add 2/3 of water requirement. Then, add grout. After partial mixing, add remainder of water to achieve desired consistency.
Do not mix more material than can be placed in 30 minutes.
Placement … Place by packing or rodding in to area to be grouted.
Curing … Cure immediately following application, cure PAC-IT using a suitable curing compound from W. R. MEADOWS, or in accordance with ACI 308. 2200-WHITE series or 1100-CLEAR series from W. R. MEADOWS is recommended. When conditions exist for rapid early water loss, the use of EVAPRE™ from W. R. MEADOWS is also recommended.
