Single component, cementitious, high strength , shrinkage compensated, fibre reinforced, thixotropic mortar. Suitable for concrete repairs with layer thicknesses 10-40 mm
It is suitable for:repairs of damaged structural elements of concrete (beams,columns)concrete cavities due to poor casting and weak vibration repairs of concrete precast elements
High strength (R4 class)
It contains pure quartz aggregates
Formulation rich in cement allows easy placing and finishing
The concrete substrate must be completely clean and structurally sound.
The cavity of the surface to be repaired should be at least 10 mm thick.
The edges where concrete is removed, should be cut at an angle of 90° and to a thickness of at least 10mm
Remove deteriorated concrete or mortar by hand or mechanical methods (chisel or high pressure water blasting) ensuring also the appropriate surface roughness.
Reinforcement should be cleaned from rust and any other loose and deleterious materials or add new bars if the existing are no longer appropriate
Before applying THIXOCRETE the substrate should be saturated with water
Remove excess water, if any.
In a clean bucket, initially pour the minimum amount of water indicated, start the mixer and add THIXOCRETE continuously. Mix (in low speed) until a homogeneous, without lumps, mixture is achieved
Then leave the mixture to settle for 2 – 3 min and if necessary add water (according to the amount indicated), and mix again until the required consistency is achieved
Hand mixing of the product is not recommended.
The mortar can be applied by trowel or sprayed.
The final levelling /smoothing of the surface, may only begin once the mortar has started to set
After application, the mortar should be properly cured for at least 2 days. During the summer period with wet burlaps, spraying water or curing agents and during winter period should be protected from low temperatures with plastic sheets
