Use

Pre-treatment

For best results, the temperature in the work area should be between 10–25 °C. Store the dry mortar and other materials so they will remain over 10 °C before use. At temperatures lower than 5 °C, the strength development will cease. If the product is used in temperatures below 5 °C, then winter measures should be implemented. The substrate should be clean and free from dust, a cement skin, grease or other impurities that can prevent adhesion. Smooth and glossy surfaces should be roughened and elutriated when necessary. Pre-water before the casting begins. There must not be free water in the joint.

Mixing

remove_circle

The dry powder is mixed with 3.2 litres of water (16 %) per 20 kg bag. The amount of water may be adapted to the area of use. The addition of increased water gives a looser consistency, as well as lower strength and somewhat greater shrinkage. The mixing is done in a paddle mixer or a free fall mixer for approx. 5–10 minutes, or with a drill and a whisk. The mortar is mixed into a homogeneous mass. Such a mixture provides approximately 11.2 litres of finished mortar. Use the pre-mixed mass within approx. 30 minutes.

Application

Fill the joints with the pre-mixed mortar. Mortar that has started to cure may not be mixed with more water and must be discarded.

Post-treatment and curing
add_circle
remove_circle

Protect the newly-cast surfaces immediately from direct sunshine, rain and high wind. Postwatering should always be done for at least three days in dry and warm weather, as well as in the case of strong winds. Use a water hose with a fine spray nozzle. The strength increases with the post-watering of the cured material. Cover the post-watered surface with plastic. The concrete surface must not be exposed to frost before the strength has reached 5 MPa.
