Application Information
Instructions for use


To ensure proper mixing, use a mechanical power mixer or drill fitted with a suitable paddle. However, for small quantities, Vetorep CR523 can be hand mixed using the proper tools and bucket.

Pour 7 - 8.5 liter of fresh water into a clean container, then add the powder slowly to the water while mixing continuously with a low-speed mixer/drill (400 - 600 rpm). Continue mixing for 3 minutes until obtaining a uniform consistency. Leave the mixture for 5 - 10 minutes to mature and then remix for 30 - 60 seconds without adding further water.

To enhance the scratch resistance of Vetorep CR523, we advise adding Vetobond PB434. Consult your Saveto representative for further information.

Placing and Finishing

Apply Vetorep CR523 by using a steel trowel. Apply the mixed mortar to the prepared substrates up to a thickness of 3mm. Allow the applied mortar to stiffen before trowelling to a smooth finish.

Blowhole or bug holes might have a larger size, so to ensure the well filling and the right repair of the hole (if it is more the 5mm deep and wide), fill the cavities gradually.


Vetorep CR523 does not require curing in normal ambient conditions. In harsh weather conditions, such as high wind and temperatures, it is recommended to cure it with Vetobond AB432.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces should be clean, sound, and uncontaminated before the application of  Vetorep CR523. Clean the prepared area thoroughly by using a brush and/or compressed air. Soak the prepared with water immediately before the application of Vetorep CR523.
