High strength fine structural repair mortar
Vetorep CR526 is a single component polymer modified fibered cementitious structural repair mortar that is ready to use and only requires adding water on site. Once mixed, the product becomes a thixotropic hand-applied mortar used to repair demanding structural repair while being compatible with host concrete. Vetorep CR526 is composed of a blend of hydraulic cement, carefully selected and graded aggregates, fibers, and special additives to give it its unique properties.
Vetorep CR526 is supplied in 25kg bags
Yield: 13 Liters.
Stated consumption data are for general guidance. Actual consumption depends on the nature of substrate, method of application, and wastage.
The original sealed bag of Vetorep CR526 has a shelf life of 12 months, provided it is stored clear of ground in a dry and shaded temperature-controlled place <35ºC.
Prime all grit blasted steel reinforcements within 2 to 4 hours with one or two coats of Vetoprime CP436.
Soak the areas to be repaired with Vetorep CR526 with clean water before applying the repair mortar. Remove all excess water before applying one coat of acrylic bonding agent Vetobond AB432.
Allow Vetobond AB432 to become tacky before applying the repair mortar.
Use a mechanically powered mixer or drill fitted with a suitable paddle to ensure proper mixing. Add 2.8 to 3 liters of clean water to a clean container.
Add the powder is slowly to the water while mixing continuously with a low-speed mixer/drill (400 - 600 rpm). Continue mixing for 5 minutes until obtaining a uniform consistency.
Placing and Finishing
Apply Vetorep CR526 by trowel or hand. Fully compact the mixed mortar into the substrate by firm pressure to ensure good adhesion with the steel reinforcements and the substrate. Finish and level the surface initially by a wooden or plastic float. Carry out the final finish using a steel float.
As Vetorep CR526 is a cementitious-based material, cure it similarly to concrete. Curing can be conducted using Vetobond AB432 or by continuous watering and covering with polyethylene sheets.
All tools should be cleaned immediately after application using freshwater. Clean hardened materials mechanically.
Cut back all damaged and weak concrete to reach sound concrete and/or to a minimum depth of at least 10mm.
Grit blast corroded steel reinforcement to remove all rust traces. In case of significant loss in the steel reinforcement cross-section, replace the steel. Remove all concrete forms around the exposed steel reinforcements by a thickness of 25mm. Saw cut the perimeters of the repair area to a minimum depth of 10mm. Clean the prepared area thoroughly by brush and/or compressed air.
Vetorep CR526 Contains reins which may cause sensitization by skin contact. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapor. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, and eye/face protection. Barrier creams provide additional skin protection. Should accidental skin contact occur, remove immediately with a resin-removing cream, followed by soap and water. Do not use solvent. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately. Do not induce vomiting.
Vetorep CR526 is non-flammable.
