Product Properties

Technical Data/Properties(*)

(*)Typical values in production control. All tests were executed under a conditioned temperature of 21°C and 65% RH.
(**) Compressive strengths measurements based on prisms of 4x4x16cm.
(***) According to EN 206-1:2001 in combination with DIN 1045-2.

Application

1. Preparation of Substrate

  • Substrate preparation has to be according EN 1504-10 part 7.
  • The substrate has to be free from dirt, grease, laitance, loose concrete, loose particles or layers which could adversely affect adhesion.
  • Remove all damaged concrete and prepare substrate by sand or grid blasting, high pressure water jetting, or other methods until base concrete is exposed, offering sufficient roughness (bond) and open pores.
  • The substrate must be pre-wetted with clean water until saturated. The substrate should be damp, but without free standing water.
  • The substrate must be frost-free.

2. Mixing

  • The product has to be mixed using a suitable forced action mixer (400-600rpm). The mixing head must be completely immersed in the powder. Specially designed mixing units for lining grouts can also be used.
  • Add the required quantity of water into the mixer and mix until a lump-free, homogeneous mixture is obtained. Never use more than the maximum water quantity.
  • The mixing time depends on the type of mixer.
  • Once the grout is ready mixed, apply immediately. Do not prepare more material than can be used within the open time of the material.
  • Keep the material in motion during application with a low speed mixer to prevent segregation and maintain open time.

3. Application

  • The grout is injected in one continuous application using a pump or injection equipment suitable for lining grouts.
  • If necessary, a dense and non-absorbent formwork is to be used.
  • Do not vibrate.
