    Field of application

    • For use indoors and outdoors
    • Repair, renovation and restoration of wall surfaces and masonry subjected to moisture and salt loads
    • Internal wall surfaces in cellars, old buildings and facades
    • Can be used in combination with SP Level (Art. 0401) in areas exposed to high levels of harmful salts
    • Can be applied in a single layer as an undercoat or finishing coat

    Properties

    • High sulphate resistance and low active alkali content (SR/NA)
    • High salt storing capacity
    • Enables water vapour diffusion
    • Pore hydrophobic
    • Fibre-reinforced
    • Promotes drying
    • 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 the substrate so that it is slightly moist.

        Substrate: absorbent with low strength

        Apply product as a bonding layer > 50% opaque.

        Substrate: weakly absorbent

        Apply SP Prep (Preparatory Mortar) in nodules as a fully opaque bonding layer.

        Alternative: apply product as a scratch coat (contact layer).

        Substrate: mineral waterproofing grout

        Apply SP Prep (Preparatory Mortar) in nodules to the last grouting layer while wet as a fully opaque bonding layer.

    • Application
      • Mortar cover / Filling knife / Trowel application / Application by spraying
      • 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

      • Apply product using a suitable tool or machine.

         

        One-layer

        Single layer thickness 15 - 30 mm

         

        Two-layer

        Roughen the first layer with a render comb.

        Apply second layer once sufficiently dry.

        Embed reinforcement fabric in the upper third of the render, with fabric widths overlapping by at least 10 cm.

        Layer thickness per coat 15 - 30 mm

        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.

    • 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 and/or fissured) 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 2-9-04/D must be met.

    • Working tools / cleaning
