Weber Five Star Grout


Five Star Grout is a premixed cementitious grout developed for applications where an economical grout with good flow and strength is required. The material is based on specially selected Portland cements, graded aggregates and admixtures including a special form of carbon.

Five Star Grout is designed primarily as a flowing grout but can also be used at a trowellable or dry pack consistency.

Complies with BS EN 1504-3 and -6


  • Non-shrink cementitious grout
  • Can be pumped, poured, trowelled or dry-packed
  • Developed for applications where good flow and strength is required
  • Ideal for static loads

Features and Benefits

  • Five Star Grout is shown to be effectively non-shrink by Early Volume Change of Cementitious Mixtures which, unlike other methods, measures expansion or shrinkage from time of placing
  • Volume expansion when unrestrained is greater than 1.0%
  • Precision grout is suitable for use over a range of temperatures and site conditions
  • Can be pumped, poured, trowelled or dry-packed
  • Thermal expansion similar to that of good quality concrete
  • Good flow properties
  • Can be applied in thicknesses from 10mm to 100mm
  • Does not significantly lose workability during pot life

Typical Uses

  • Under stanchion plates and machinery (static loads only)
  • Grouting bearings, precast units, floors etc
  • Fixing anchor bolts, balustrades, crash barriers, starter bars
  • Underpinning
  • Void filling


Five Star Grout must only be used in confined situations, e.g. under baseplates, in holes etc.


All surfaces should be clean and sound. Concrete surfaces must be free from any contamination including oil, grease, laitance and dust. For maximum bond, the surface should be roughened
and pre-soaked with clean water.

Immediately prior to grouting, remove free water including that in bolt holes or recesses.


Surfaces must be free from rust, scale, oil or grease but removable metal shims should be lightly oiled.

Ensure bolt holes are free of dust, water or any loose material. Formwork should be well sealed to prevent leakage.


This grout needs only to be mixed with sufficient water to give the consistency required. Mixing should be carried out in a proprietary grout mixer or in a bucket (where the height is at least 11/2 times its diameter) by using a medium-speed
drill (650 rpm) with an MR4-type helical attachment.

When using the maximum water to obtain a pourable grout, the following procedure is recommended. Pour about 2 litres of water into a suitable bucket, then add half the powder and mix to a thick paste consistency, ensuring any lumps
are broken down by the shearing action.

Continue mixing, adding more powder and some more water gradually into the vortex. After adding all the powder and having produced a mix of uniform creamy consistency, add the rest of the water slowly into the vortex to obtain the pourable grout. Do not mix the grout for more than 5 minutes.

Avoid entraining excessive quantities of air during mixing by keeping the mixing head below the grout level at all times.

To obtain the consistency required, add water as follows:

  • Dry pack mix Approx. 2.25 litres of
    water per 25kg bag
  • Trowellable mix Approx. 3.5 litres of
    water per 25kg bag
  • Pourable mix Up to 5 litres of water
    per 25kg bag

Chemical Resistance

When properly placed and cured Five Star Grout is a dense low permeability material that does not suffer damage from frost attack and freeze/thaw conditions. Its permeability means it is highly durable and resistant to petrol, oils, diesel fuels,
anti-freeze liquid and de-icing salts.


When pouring, the area to be grouted should be shuttered and a header box used to maintain a grout head of 150 – 200mm during the pour.

Machine mixing is recommended to achieve continuous pouring. For large applications, Five Star Grout should be placed by pump and has been formulated to give a 35 minute working time. It does not contain metal particles; wear and tear on equipment is similar to conventional sand/cement

Mixing and placement can be carried out between +5°C and +40°C. In service, Five Star Grout will perform similarly to other cementitious mixes based on Portland cement in the temperature range of -20°C to +150°C.

Continuous grout flow is essential and sufficient grout and water should be available to be mixed to ensure there is no discontinuity of the flow.

Where the thickness of grout is greater than 100mm, use Five Star Repair Concrete.

The grout around the edges of baseplates must be finished flush with the sides by cutting the grout while still green after stripping formwork. Cracking due to expansion may result in such areas where there is no restraint.


Five Star Grout is based on Portland cement and good concreting practice with regards to placing and curing especially under winter conditions must
be observed.

Do not add water above the recommended stated dosages.

Use only clean (potable) water. Avoid leaving unconfined areas of grout proud around bearings etc.


Five Star Grout is supplied in 25kg polythene lined bags.


For a pourable mix each 25kg bag produces approximately 14.0 litres of grout i.e. 71 bags per cubic metre. When using a trowellable mix the yield is 13 litres i.e. 77 bags per cubic metre. For estimating purposes, 5% extra should be allowed for spillage during mixing and placing.

Storage and Shelf Life

When stored unopened in a dry place at temperatures above 5°C, shelf life is 12 months from the date of manufacture.

Health and Safety

Contains cement (Contains chromium (VI).

May produce an allergic reaction).

Harmful by inhalation. Irritating to eyes and skin. Keep out of the reach of children.

In case of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical help. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of soap and water. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection.
