MAXCRETE  100LW – LIGHT WEIGHT CONCRETE REPAIR MORTAR

Description

                       

MAXCRETE 100LW – LIGHT WEIGHT EPOXY REPAIR MORTAR is a lightweight epoxy concrete repair mortar, designed to repair vertical and overhead concrete surfaces. The mixed material has a very high build capability of up 75mm in a single application, reducing application time considerably versus conventional repair methods.

Applications

  • Head lintels
  • Window sills
  • Columns
  • Cosmetic repairs to bridges and concrete structures
  • Damaged Stonework

Surface Preparation

The concrete surface must be free of all dust and loose materials, compressed air can be used to clean any thin hairline cracks or deep pitting

For oil contaminated surfaces an enzyme cleaner must be applied to the surface to ensure that all residual oil contamination is removed.

The concrete can be abraded using a mechanical grinder to ensure the repair material is adhering to a sound concrete surface

Priming

All repair surface must be primed – Pour the primer (activator) component into the primer (base) component tin and mix with the spatula provided.

Once the resin is streak free apply by brush to the repair area. Ensure the primer is pressed into any cracks or pitting and the concrete surface is thoroughly wetted.

Mixing

Do not apply when the ambient or substrate temperature is below 5°C (40°F)

Empty the bag of aggregate (aggregate is pre-mixed with the based component) into the 5ltr, pail provided and then add the activator component to the aggregate.

For the best results use an electric paddle mixer to ensure the two components are thoroughly mixed.

Application

Once mixed best application method is by forcing the material in to the repair with a gloved hand and finishing with a float to achieve the required surface finish.

For overhead or vertical surfaces, the material can be applied up to 75mm using melamine boards as temporary shuttering to support the mortar whilst curing.  For best results spray water onto the face of the trowel for the finishing skim

Coverage

2.5kg unit of mixed product will have the following theoretical coverage rates at the nominal thickness of:

  • 0.83m² at 3mm
  • 0.5m² at 5mm
  • 0.36m² at 7mm
  • 0.277m²at 9mm

Cure Times

The applied materials should be allowed to harden for the times indicated below. These times will be extended at lower temperatures and reduced at higher temperatures:

  • Usable Life 50 – 60 mins
  • Movement without load or immersion 8 hours

Over-Coat

Times

Minimum – the applied material can be over-coated as soon as it is touch dry. 

Maximumover-coating time 12 hours.

Where the maximum over-coating time is exceeded, the material should be allowed  to harden before being abraded and solvent washed to remove any surface contamination

Pot Life @ 20°C

50 -60 minutes
