Fast-setting Repair Product – high-strength, multipurpose, unique
MORTAR MIX mixed with water produces a workable, high quality mortar that is ideal where rapid strength gain, high durability and low shrinkage are desired. Apply MORTAR MIX in thickness from 10 – 150 mm. Durable in wet environments. SETS IN 15 MINUTES & IS READY FOR TRAFFIC IN 1-HOUR.
MORTAR MIX is a blend of high-performance Rapid Set Cement with washed plaster sand. It provides rapid strength gain, high durability and low shrinkage. It is used for horizontal, vertical and overhead plaster and concrete projects. Simply mix with water and it will reach structural strength in 1 hour.
No. The high-performance properties are solely due to the Rapid Set Cement in the mix.
Rapid Set reduces the waiting time before coating. Under dry conditions water-based coating materials such as latex paint can be applied as soon as the product is hardened and dry which usually takes 1 – 4 hours. Solvent-based products as well as impermeable coatings such as oil based paint and epoxy can be applied in 16 hours.
Experience has shown that some coating material can be applied in much less time. The manufacturer’s recommendations for surface conditions should be observed.
Bonding agents are not required. Proper surface preparation is crucial for achieving a good bond. If bonding agents are desired, they should be used as a supplement to a proper surface preparation, not as a substitute.
Blending with other products may give unpredictable results and is not recommended. The use of Rapid Set approved additives and various colors is possible.
Layer thickness from 15 mm to 150 mm.
Just add water. Recommended is the use of a mechanical mixer such as a mortar mixer or a drill mounted mixer. Organize work so that all required people and equipment is in place before mixing.
MORTAR MIX can be placed in traditional methods and stroke-off to the desired level. MORTAR MIX is fast and does not bleed water thus the final finish can be applied immediately after placement. To ensure effective working, organize people and qualified tools.
For flat works, place the full thickness and proceed horizontally. DO NOT place in layers.
All Rapid Set placements are cured with water. The objective of water curing is to maintain a wet surface until the product has achieved sufficient strength. Curing begins as soon as the surface has lost its moist sheen and is continued for a minimum of 1 hour.
The working time can be increased by lowering the mixing temperature or by adding retarding additives. Temperature can be lowered by keeping the product cool and using chilled mix water. The addition of Set Control from Concrete Pharmacy increases the working time.
Yes. The color of MORTAR MIX can be modified by using dry powder pigments designed for use in cementitious building materials.
Roughening of the surface and removal of all damaged and contaminated concrete. The repair surface must be free from oil, paint, acids, dirt or other materials impeding a good bond. Prior to the placement, the repair surface has to be saturated with water, avoiding the formation of puddles.
Yes, MORTAR MIX is produced with Rapid Set Cement which is a hydraulic cement. Hydraulic cements harden under water.
One bag MORTAR MIX yields in approx. 13 l ready mix. For specific details on placement, please contact the manufacturer.
When stored in a dry location, in undamaged packaging, MORTAR MIX has a shelf-life of approx. 9 months.
Cold temperature will slow the setting time of MORTAR MIX, warm temperature will speed it up. Greater fluctuations in temperature will have a more pronounced affect.
