Technical Information
Product Description

Plaster Mix M is a cement-based plastering material composed of hydraulic binders, selected aggregates, and special additives. It is supplied as a dry powder in pre-weighed bags ready to use on-site, which requires only the addition of clean water to produce cohesive mortar. Plaster Mix M is a high-quality product that contains a special shrinkage control additive. It is designed for manual hand application for areas that can not be accessed by machine application. Plaster Mix M can be used by plaster spray machines too. Plaster Mix M is generally applied in thicknesses ranging from 5 to 20mm per layer.

Application Information
Instructions for use

Mixing

Add to the mixing container 8.5-9.5 liters of water for each 50Kg bag of Plaster Mix M. Add the powder to the water and mix with a mechanical plaster mixer or a low-speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle. Mix for 3-4 minutes until achieving a uniform, lump-free consistency.

For manual (hand) mixing, water demand might differ from the mentioned above ratio due to the mixing efficiency that depends on human efforts.

For the spraying machine, adjust the water flow from 350-550 Liter/hour; this depends on the desired consistency and the rubber pump conditions.

To increase the plaster's workability and the adhesion to the substrate, we highly advise adding 1-2 liters of Saveto Bond 2 to the mixing water and adjusting the water requirements for each 50kg bag of Plaster Mix M.

The mixed material can be retempered after 1 hour from mixing up to 2 hours; after that, the material can not be used since it starts to set.

Application

Apply Plaster Mix M in a single or two layers on rough or smooth surfaces to achieve the desired thickness. Before the application of Plaster Mix M, Apply Spatter Dash SB to the surface.

Apply the mixed material using the hawk & trowel technique. Rod or level to a uniform thickness of 5-20 mm. When the plaster starts to stiff, usually after 40 - 60 min depending on the surrounding conditions, smooth the material to achieve the desired appearance.

When applying Plaster Mix M using a plaster machine, ensure high pressure and the right water ratio, start with the areas that will consume more, and apply gradually.

For thicknesses, more than 20 mm, use the ASTM C926 practice: each layer 10 - 15mm rough finish, should cure before applying the second coat for at least 2 days; or follow the double-up or double-back procedure (which indicates to apply the second coat of plaster to the first coat as soon as the first coat has attained sufficient rigidity to receive the application without any damage). This often occurs on the same day and is relative, where it depends on the plasterer experience; the Saveto Techincal team does not likely recommend it.

After the surface appears stiff but still moist, smoothen the material surface to achieve the desired appearance.

Curing

Plaster Mix M's curing method is by spraying water on applied material surfaces every 12 hours for a minimum of 3 days. During hot & dry conditions, allow curing for a minimum of 5 days. This will help in obtaining a higher mechanical strength and minimize the risk of surface cracks.

Cleaning

Clean tools with water before the mortar hardens. After the hardening, remove the residuals mechanically only.

 

Surface Preparation

The substrate should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt, curing compound, etc.

Before Plaster Mix M application, damp the entire surfaces with clean potable water. The surface should be suction neutralized at the time of Plaster Mix M application.

Limitation
  • Do not mix with any additives or products unless recommended by Saveto. Make sure the substrate is suitable for plaster application. In case of doubt, try on a sample area to assess its suitability or consult a Saveto representative.

     

  • Do not apply the product at a temperature lower than +5ºC. During the summer season, the working area must be covered to prevent the ill-effects of direct sun and excessive air-draught during the initial curing stage.

Additional Information
Health & Sefety

Plaster Mix M is highly alkaline; therefore, avoid direct contact with eyes or skin. It is recommended to use protective gloves and goggles during application. Wash any skin contact with soap & water. In case of eye irritation, immediately wash with a copious amount of clean cold water. Seek medical advice.

Plaster Mix M is non-flammable.
