Instructions For Use
Remove all loose material, plaster, paint and oily deposits to produce a sound clean surface. Roughen smooth concrete to give a good mechanical key.
Cut back repair edges to avoid feather edging. Expose reinforcing steel two thirds of its circumference in a sound concrete background. Totally expose steel in areas where concrete repairs are deeper than the steel embedment depth. Clean back corroded reinforcing steel to bright metal. Protect cleaned steel with Steel Primer.
Using Bondcoat UF, pour all of the contents of the hardener bottle into the resin tub and mix thoroughly until homogeneous. Apply a thin continuous coat of mixed primer to the work area using a stiff bristle brush.
Place the mixed Parex Epoxy Mortar E, see section below, within 30 minutes of priming. If primer is absorbed by a porous substrate, re-prime before applying mortar.
The mixing of Parex Epoxy Mortar E should be carried out with full packs only. Pour all of the resin and hardener into a clean vessel. Mix with a slow speed high torque drill and Mortar Stirrer until homogeneous. Add the filler slowly whilst continuously mixing. After all filler has been added, mix for a further one minute.
For larger quantities place the mixed resin system into a suitable mixer such as the Mixal or Creteangle. Start to mix and slowly add the filler. When all the filler has been added, mix for a further one minute.
Place the mixed material onto the primed surface using a clean trowel or other suitable hand tool. Ensure that the applied mortar is worked well into repair edges and any irregularities. A smooth surface finish may be achieved using a steel float moistened with Solvent.
Place in layers of approximately 10mm to 50mm. Where thicker layers are required to be built up, the surface of the under layer should be left with a wood float finish and should be scored. Subsequent primer and mortar layers may be applied as soon as the initial layer is firm enough not to distort under the new work.To view our extensive range of Parex products click here
