Concrete substrates must be suitably prepared using mechanical or abrasive blast cleaning techniques such as scabbling, needle gunning, grit blasting and to provide a clean, sound surface free of laitance, surface contaminants such as oil and grease and loosely adhering particles.
E.M. BOND should be mechanically mixed using a forced action mixer or in a clean drum using a drill and paddle. A normal concrete mixer is NOT suitable. Mix E.M. BOND with water to produce a gauging solution in the correct ratio for 90 seconds. Add gauging solution to cement/aggregate mix until desired consistency is achieved.
The prepared substrate should be thoroughly soaked with clean water until uniformly saturated leaving no standing water. Always apply mix &ldquo wet on wet&rdquoonto bonding bridge/coat. Re-apply if surface dries.
Typically in order to modify mortars the recommended consumption level of E.M. BOND is 15-20% of cement weight.
FIELD OF APPLICATION
E.M. BOND is added to water then mixed with cement and sand/aggregate to produce:
Screeds with enhanced mechanical properties.
Repair of damaged or spalled concrete.
3, 8, 18 kg containers.
The shelflife is 12 months if unopened, stored free from frost, moisture and direct sunlight.
