Grout
Sovereign Jeda JV is a design, manufacturing and project management company that can create a geological seal for every possible site

Sovereign has been dedicated to the field of water proofing since 1972. Upon realizing the severity of the problems associated with water ingress, Sovereign embarked on a research program which resulted in lodging its first patents in 1974 – our first penetrable yet flexible grout, SCEM66.

Uncontrolled penetration or water leakage into or through waterlogged geological and civil structures as encountered in tunnels and mining excavations can be one of the most annoying, difficult and costly problems faced by engineers and operators. Sovereign pioneered high pressure injection grouting and have since perfected on-site control over these polymeric emulsion grouts.

Reactive grouting, dealing with difficult inflows is our Forte but through research we have embarked on several Pre- Grouting and curtain designs – sealing a geological formation prior to excavation. The benefit of predictable hydro-geological conditions before shaft sinking is of great importance to miners – keeping your project and costs on track.

Sovereign specializes in the sealing of high flow / high pressure water inflows. Our quick set grout has sealed single leaks flowing at rates of 2600 Gallons per minute. Water inflows with pressures of 2500 P.S.I. have also been successfully sealed in very deep South African mines. Sovereign is a design, manufacturing and project management company that can create a geological seal for every possible site – leaking oil well, mine or tunnel. “We analyze the geotechnical information, consult with the client’s engineering and operations staff and then design a site specific grout formulation and placement program.”

Sovereign Jeda JV is qualified to report to the Mining and Civil industries.
