Chemical Properties
 
The addition of POLYLATEX to cementitious mortar reduces permeability dramatically and increases mortar resistance to aggressive environments.
 
Guide For Application
 
Preparation
Prepare a good clean structural surface for bonding by removing all loose materials, old mortars & laitance.
 
Traces of oil, grease & curing compounds should be removed by chipping out the affected area of concrete.
Finally sweep or blow off the surface to remove dust which could cause de bonding.
 
Priming 
Areas should be pre- wetted but free standing water should be removed.
Apply a slurry coat of POLYLATEX to the prepared area.
 
Mixing 
Mix dry ingredients with the required amount of water before adding POLYLATEX, as shown in Table A.
 
Placing 
Place POLYLATEX cementitious mortar / concrete while primer is still wet.
Do not hard trowel or over finish;
Easily float the surface to reach a final finish.
 
Curing
 
We recommend the use of POLYCURE RB I for curing.
 
Cleaning
 
Tools should be cleaned immediately with water after use.
 
Packaging
 
POLYLATEX is supplied in 20lit.
Pails and 210 lit. Drums.
 
Storage
 
POLYLATEX should be stored in shaded areas.
 
Shelf Live
 
One year when stored as recommended.
 
Health and safety
 
POLYLATEX is non flammable.
 
Any splashes on skin should be washed with water.
Seek medical assistance in case of contact with eyes, after washing it with plenty of water.
