    • M3 mortar according to RiLi-SIB concrete guidelines and class R4 according to DIN EN 1504-3
    • Can be sprayed and applied by hand
    • Single-layered application thickness in cracks up to 80 mm
    • Maximum grain size: 2 mm
    • Reaction to fire: class A1
    • Approved by the German Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt)
    • Compressive strength after 28 days: ≥ 50 N/mm²
    • 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.

    • 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

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

        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

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

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

        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.

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