POLYCRETE LX

 

 It surrounds each cement particle and forms e. polymer lattice throughout the mix allowing even cure, giving & additional adhesion between the cement matrix and the aggregate.

The POLYCRETE LX based slurries form a protective rubber - like skin which is tightly bonded to the substrate.
Unlike some polyvinyl acetates and acrylics, EAMICRETE LX does riot re-emulsify and once cured, the bond is unaffected by water or water vapor.
EAMICRETE LX can be used with advantage as an economical replacement for epoxy, polyester and other resin mortars.

Strength 
     By using POLYCRETE LX in the basic mortar mix, all round strength can be increased, the mortar itself 
Adhesion 
POLYCRETE LX is a powerful and permanent adhesive. In many difficult applications, it is an effective replacement for expensive two pack resin system.
Shrinkage 
When POLYCRETE LX is added to cement / aggregate mixes, it increases the resistance to shrinkage during the curing process.
 
Thermal Coefficient of linear 
Expansion 
     Using POLYCRETE LX as a latex admixture with the cementations mixes and it has no effect on the coefficient of linear expansion.
Durability & Chemical 
Resistance.
POLYCRETE LX modified mixes have better resistance to chemical attack than control samples,.
 
Methodology & Dosage
 
 Preparation 
      It is essential that areas intended to receive a POLYCRETE LX slurry on mortar be adequately prepared and any additional remedial work undertaken. Surface must be well cleaned and prepared to give a strong mechanical key. Remove all laitance I oil I grease, and any loose of weak parts.

Application
 General
     Immediately before application of 'he first slurry coat only, thoroughly dampen all surfaces.
     Slurry coats are applied by brush in alternate horizontal and vertical directions.
     Allow preceding coats to dry overnight, while the final slurry coat is still wet, wet time depends on temperature (usually about ten minutes), apply the render with the required thickness.
     Working joints must not occur at vertical angles nor coincide in successive coats.
When working in damp unventilated conditions, the first (or second) slurry coat must be dry before over coating.
Do not damp surface between slurry coats, nor apply second or third coats to a surface which is wet due to condensation. Wipe dry and introduce ventilation.
 
Packing
 EAMICRETE LX is supplied in 5 liters & 20 liters containers and 210 liters drums.
 
Storage
 Shaded or inside storage is recommended.
 
Shelf Life
One year when stored as recommended.

Quick Overview:

  • Short Description:

    Product Description POLYCRETE LX is a styrelie / Butadiene copolymer latex, specifically formulated to be used at a combined waterproofer, adhesive and plasticizer for cementations mixes. It is suitable for use with all types of cement and aggregate and is simply added as a total or partial replacement for the gauging water. It surrounds each cement particle and forms e.
