Product Supplied: Moment® Half Grout Coupler

Moment® Half Grout coupler was mounted on T16 rebar which has been threaded with JoinTec threading which makes the installation easier as the first rebar has been tightly screwed to the couplers before casting. The couplers were installed at the bottom of each precast element, are then cast as part of the precast wall panel element.
After bracing the precast panel in its final position, non-shrink grout was injected into the cavity of the coupler to create the rebar connection. Moment® Half Grout coupler requires less usage of grout and is not dependent on any specific type of grout. Different brands of grout can be used, easing local scouring and to keep the costing low. The bracing around the panel was then removed after the grout has attain the prescribed strength.
