    Field of application

    • For use indoors and outdoors
    • Plinth areas with and without waterproofing
    • Substrates contaminated with high levels of damaging salts
    • Repair, renovation and restoration of old, damp and salt-loaded masonry


    • High sulphate resistance and low active alkali content (SR/NA)
    • High compressive strength
    • Enables water vapour diffusion
    • Single-layer application thickness up to 30 mm
    • Machine workable
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

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

      • Preparations

        Remove render, paint layers and coatings at least 80 cm above the damaged area.

        Chase out friable joints to a depth of at least 2 cm.

        Pre-wet absorbent substrates so that they are slightly damp.

        Substrate: absorbent with low strength

        Apply SP Prep or SP Prep rapid as a bonding layer in net form (covering area 50-70%) with max. 5 mm layer thickness.

        Alternative: apply SP Top SR as a scratch coat (contact layer).

        Substrate: weakly absorbent

        Apply SP Prep or SP Prep rapid at full coverage (100%) with max. 5 mm layer thickness.

        Alternative: apply SP Top SR as a scratch coat (contact layer).

        Substrate: mineral waterproofing slurry

        Apply SP Prep as a full-coverage bonding layer on the last slurry layer wet-on-wet.

    • Application
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 30 °C
      • Mortar cover / Filling knife / Trowel application / Application by spraying
      • Drying time: can be worked over after 60 minutes
      • One-layer

        Apply product using a suitable tool or machine.



        Roughen the first layer with a render comb.

        Apply second layer once sufficiently dry.

        Alternatively, apply the total layer thickness in 2 coats, wet on wet, embedding reinforcement fabric (Tex 6.5/100).

        Ensure that fabric sheets overlap by at least 10 cm.


        Level off surface with a long float.

        Finish the surface once set.

        Prepare the surface for subsequent layers with a grated scraper after sufficient setting.

        Pre-wet hydrophobic surfaces with detensioned water so that they are slightly damp before applying further render coats.


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

        On critical substrates (highly uneven, fissured, mixed masonry) we recommend incorporating the reinforcement fabric in the upper third of the restoration render.

        Apply additional diagonal reinforcement to the edges of building openings.

        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.

        To ensure that the renovation is successful, the relevant drying conditions according to WTA Code of Practice 2-9-20/D must be met.

        Please contact Remmers Technical Service (phone +49 5432 83900) before applying with machine processing.

        When processing in machines, the product-specific data, such as strength, air void content, etc. might change.
