Reconstec 300 AC

Architectural Concrete Restoration Mortar

 

 

DESCRIPTION :

RECONSTEC 300 AC (part A and B) is a mortar specially designed for the restoration of architectural concrete. Non-shrink and very good bond to the concrete. Easily applied to clean, sound substrates.  Contains no synthetic polymers. For exposed aggregate larger than ╝"use part B (mix of cement, additives and sand).

Packaging:

Plastic pail contains 20 kg (44 lb).
 

Shelf life:

1 year in original, unopened pail.
 

SURFACE PREPARATION :

Remove all impurities, dirt, grease, other bond inhibiting materials from surface. Preparation work should be done using manual or pneumatic cutting techniques. Dampen surface to be repaired with clean water.

MIXING :

The mixing ratio is approximately 7 parts powder to 1 part water for part A and 5 parts powder to 1 part water for part B. Use clean container. Pour water into mixing container. The mixing may be done by hand or using a slow speed drill (300-450 rpm) with a mixing paddle. Mix to a uniform consistency for a minimum 3 minutes. Add additional water if a more fluid consistency is desired. Do not over water. Do not over-mix. Working time is approximately 15 minutes.

APPLICATION & FINISHING :

When the aggregate into the mix is ╝" or larger a mortar composed only with fine aggregate (part B) should be used as first coat as a bonding agent. Mortar must be scrubbed into substrate, filling all pores and voids. Use a steel trowel. Force material against edge of repair, working toward center. Apply mortar (part A) before bond coat dries. Force product against edge of repair, working toward center, then screed Allow mortar to reach initial set then apply the retardant agent by brush or spray. When a mold is necessary apply the retardant agent by painting the mold surface prior to the casting of mortar. After the mortar has hardened sufficiently to permit removal from the mold the outer layer of cement paste is removed by brushing, by high-pressure washing or by a combination of both. Clean area with water. With the removal of the cement and sand from the concrete surface, the coarse aggregate provides the texture and color of the precast panel.

CURING :

 Moist curing must start immediately after finishing. Use mist spray or wet burlap for

 one day. Protect freshly applied mortar from direct sunlight, wind rain and frost.

CLEAN UP :

Remove the mortar from tools and mixing equipment with water. Cured material can only be removed mechanically.

CAUTION :

Avoid eye-contact and prolonged contact with skin. May cause irritation to sensitive skin. In case of skin or eye contact, wash thoroughly with water. If eye contact, consult nearest doctor.
