Non-shrink precision grout as a concrete countertop mix
Non-shrink precision grout (“NSPG”) has properties that make it seem like a very good concrete countertop mix. The primary factor is that it is called “non-shrink”. Secondly, its compressive strength is often very high. Typical compressive strength values are 8,000 psi to 14,000 psi at 28 days, with 1 day strengths in excess of 3,000 psi. Other factors are its availability and reasonable price.
However, “non-shrink” is a misnomer. This article explains why and what applications are appropriate for NSPG. Concrete countertops are not one of them.This article is for members only. For access to the rest of the article, please become a member!
