WHO 60 Grout
WHO 60 grout is a polymer modified cement-based mortar designed for bonding metal bars and anchors into brick, block and stone. This high performance masonry repair grout has been used for independent testing of Thor Helical bars. This includes its use in the CE Mark test program for certification of bed joint reinforcement and crack stitching systems and use by the BRE in its test report and load tables for forming deep masonry beams with retrofit helical bars.
When the cement / polymeric resin powder component is mixed with the liquid component it yields 3Lts of smooth and cohesive thixotropic masonry repair grout that is ideal for bonding helical reinforcement bars into masonry walls. This non-shrink masonry repair grout rapidly develops compressive strength. Advanced polymers improve adhesion and reduce the rate of water evaporation, allowing the crystal structure to keep growing and continue to build strength.
The fully cured polymer-modified mortar has enhanced tensile strength, flexural strength, water resistance, and chemical resistance. Additionally the polymer in the mortar helps restrain micro-crack propagation, which improves the overall toughness of the mortar
WHO 60 grout can be pump injected by mortar gun or applied by trowel. It is supplied on pallets of 72 tubs

||Bars per Joint||Tension Load
Note: Single bars bedded 20mm deep: Double bars placed 15 & 25mm deep: Triple bars buried 10, 20 & 30mm deep. Height of slot at least 3mm greater than diameter of crack stitching bars. Depth of slot 35-40mm. All bars bonded in WHO 60 polymer modified grout
TYPICAL PERFORMANCE LOADS for retrofit brick beams (taken from BRE Testing, including conservative factors of safety)
Depth of Beam
Brick beams formed by installing two chords of double 6mm bar bedded in WHO 60 Grout. Bars extended 500mm either side of the opening (span). The depth of the beam is the distance between each chord of double helical bars. Loads are in kN/m run.
