Package & Yield
 
POLYPAIR FC is supplied in 25-Kg Plastic bags.
 
Rates:
One bag yields approx. 12 liters of mortar depending on water addition.
Range of water is (2.5 - 3.0) liters. This will cover 1.2 m2 at 1 O-mm thickness.
 
Application Instructions
 
Preparation 
All substrates must be free of laitance, oil, dust, grease, paint, corrosion and any other deleterious substances.
Smooth surfaces should be mechanically roughened by scrabbling gun to form a good mechanical key.
Edges of the repair area must be saw cut to 5 mm to avoid feather edging.
The complete area should be blown clean with oil free compressed air.
 
Priming 
All surfaces must be primed prior to repair, reinforcing steel must be primed with Corrosion. Concrete surfaces should be thoroughly soaked with water prior to priming.
POLYPAIR FC should be applied while primer is still wet or tacky.
Build up may be reduced due to spillage in vertical situations.
 
 
Mixing 
It is essential that quantity of one bag or more be mixed in a forced pan mixer or with a slow speed drill 500 rpm.
Always add powder to water and mix until homogeneous. The water must be cleaning, uncontaminated, and should not exceed 3.0 liters per bag.
 
Application 
POLYPAIR FC should be applied with a wood float to ensure positive contact with the primed surface.
Depending on the nature and position of the repair it may be necessary to build up POLYPAIR FC in many layers. The minimum layer thickness is 5 mm and can be built up to 25 mm in vertical surfaces by using" wet on wet" technique.
POLYPAIR FC is finished by wood float, steel trowel or sponge.
 
Curing
POLYPAIR FC must be cured immediately after finishing with standard procedures or using Tec bond ACR.
 
Storage & shelf life
 
POLYPAIR FC has a shelf life of 12 months if stored in normal temperature and closed shaded dry area in undamaged original packing.
