    Field of application

    • For use on floors/walls/ceilings indoors and outdoors
    • Concrete structures in areas under high chemical loads (up to and including exposure class XA 3)
    • Repairing concrete structures with rough surfaces in areas subjected to static and dynamic loads
    • In sewage systems exposed to high level of chemical attack, such as settling tanks, sludge thickeners and intakes
    • In drinking water systems, meets the requirements in accordance with the work sheets W 270, W 300 and W 347 of the German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water (DVGW)
    • Supporting walls, facades, slabs and balconies
    • Underneath carriageway surfacing on bridges and multi-storey car parks
    • Inside and outside old and new buildings and in the wet areas of these buildings

    Properties

    • Combines corrosion protection, a bonding layer and coarse and fine mortar
    • M3 mortar according to RiLi-SIB concrete guidelines and class R4 according to DIN EN 1504-3
    • Can be sprayed and applied by hand
    • High sulphate resistance and low active alkali content (SR/NA)
    • Single-layered application thickness in cracks up to 80 mm
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        Clean, dust-free and capable of supporting a load.

      • Preparations

        Expose all steel parts, derust to a degree of purity of SA 2½

        Pre-wet the substrate so that it is slightly moist.

        Expose the grains close to the surface

        The substrate must have an average pull-off strength of at least 1.5 N/mm²

    • Application
      • Mortar pump/ Trowel / Filling knife / Smoothing trowel / Mortar pump
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 30 °C
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. 5 °C to max. 30 °C. Low temperatures will extend the working and hardening times and high temperatures shorten them.

      • Manual working

        Use the product to apply a scratch coat.

        Dilute the product slightly before applying the product to hard-to-reach places in the form of contact sludge.

        Layer thickness, single-layered 5–25 mm

        Layer thickness, double-layered < 50 mm, with the second layer applied while the first is still wet

        Layer thickness, single-layered in cracks < 80 mm

         

        Machine working

        Layer thickness, multi-layered, with the next layer applied while the previous one is still wet < 50 mm

         

    • Application instructions
      • The pre-wet substrate must still be slightly absorbent.

        If the concrete cover measures less than 10 mm after completing repair work, protect the concrete reinforcement against corrosion using Betofix KHB.

        Once it has hardened, mortar must not be made workable again by adding either water or more wet mortar.

        Protect wet mortar surfaces against frost, rain and drying out too quickly for at least 4 days.

        Hairline/shrinkage cracks are safe and are not cause for complaint as they do not impair the properties of the mortar.

        Mixing by hand and the mixing of partial quantities are not permitted.

        Please contact Remmers Technical Service (phone +49 5432 83-153) before applying with machine processing.
