Technical Information
Product Description

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.

Advantages
  • Easy to use a single component product.
  • High physical and mechanical properties.
  • Extremely low permeability providing reinforcement protection against corrosion as well as resistance to ingress of contaminants.
  • Non-Shrink properties ensuring repair dimensional stability.
  • Suitable for internal and external applications.
  • Breathable, compatible with host concrete.
  • Thixotropic properties allowing high build-up in vertical and overhead repairs.
COMPLIANCE STANDARD
  • BSEN 1504

Application Information
Instructions for use

Priming
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.

Mixing

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.

Curing
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.

Cleaning

All tools should be cleaned immediately after application using freshwater. Clean hardened materials mechanically.

Surface Preparation

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.

Limitation
  • Apply Vetorep CR526 in a single application for sections up to 50mm thick in overhead applications, and 75mm thick in vertical applications. The thickness should not be less than 10mm deep in all applications.
  • Vetorep CR526 repair area should not exceed 2.5 m2 in a single application.
