Henkel Polycrete FC 25kg
Polycrete FC is a single component polymer modified fairing coat designed to fill pores, blowholes, minor honeycombs on a concrete surface. This can also be used as a skim coat prior to the application of protective coatings. It is a shrinkage compensated crack free material, which can be applied as thin surface coats.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
can be used as a skim coat and as an aesthetic mortar – to repair and fill honeycombs, blowholes on concrete surfaces – smoothen out damaged patches on concrete surfaces due to shutter movement and grout loss – as fairing coat prior to the application of protective coatings
Clean the concrete surface of all contaminants like oil and grease, traces of curing compound and loosely adhering particles. The cleaning can be done by sand/grit blasting, high pressure water jet or mechanical scabbling.
Priming Saturate the concrete surface with clean potable water prior to the application of the fairing coat. However, ensure that the surface is free of standing water prior to the application of the fairing coat.
Mixing Polycrete FC shall be mixed with 4.5-5.0L water at a w/p ratio of 0.18 - 0.2. pour the required quantity of water in a separate mixing container. Slowly add the powder to the water and mix continuously with a mortar paddle mixer fitted to a slow speed drill (300/400 rpm) till a homogenous and lump free consistency is achieved.
Application Apply the mixed mortar with a steel trowel evenly on to the concrete surface within its working time. Allow the coat to partly set before finally toweling it to achieve a smooth finish. For achieving a very smooth finish, sprinkle water on the surface and smoothen the surface with the steel trowel. The fairing coat shall be finished by striking off with a straight edge and closed with a steel or plastic float.
Water can be drawn to the surface if “overworking” with the float occurs resulting in an unsightly finish. Damp sponges or plastic floats may be used to achieve a desired surface texture, but care should again be taken not to overwork the surface. Curing Due to the presence of rapid drying polymers in the fairing coat, the applied mortar has to be protected from hot and drying winds.
Curing can be done either by the use of a non-degradable type of curing compound or continuous wetting of the surface with water. When cured with wet hessian cloth, the area shall be covered immediately with a TDS_Polycrete FC_GCC_0519 Low permeability crack resistant 2 Henkel Polybit Industries Ltd.; PO Box: 293, Umm Al Quwain, UAE Tel:+971(6)76 70 777; Fax:+971(6)76 70 197; firstname.lastname@example.org Henkel Polybit Industries Ltd.; PO Box: 5911, Dammam-31432, KSA Tel:+96613808 4061 / 62, Fax: +966 13 812 1164; email@example.com www.henkelpolybit.com high density polyethyelene sheet which shall be taped to all the edges which has been repaired.
