    Field of application

    • For use indoors and outdoors
    • Core construction underneath restoration mortars, in deep missing areas

    Properties

    • Low free alkali content
    • Good flank adhesion
    • Low inherent stress
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        Clean, dust-free and capable of supporting a load.

      • Preparations

        Any necessary cleaning measures should be performed as gently as possible, e.g. by spraying with cold or hot water or steam cleaning; stubborn dirt should preferably be cleaned using the rotec soft blasting method or Remmers cleaning products (e.g. Clean FP, Clean AC basic, Clean WR).

        Preserve valuable heritage ornamental elements and statues by carefully removing encrusted dirt and using the appropriate Remmers Stone Strengthener to carry out repeated intensive strengthening.

    • Application
      • Mortar cover / Filling knife / Trowel application
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 30 °C
      • Apply a contact layer to the pre-wetted substrate using grout (dry mortar/water) in a layer thickness of approx. 2 mm.

        Apply mortar in layers from 1.5 cm to 3 cm thick into the contact layer while wet.

        Once the material has hardened sufficiently (when the grain "pops"), roughen the surface.

        Wait at least 24 hours before applying subsequent layers.

    • Application instructions
      • Once it has hardened, mortar must not be made workable again by adding either water or more wet mortar.

        Protect wet mortar surfaces against frost, rain and drying out too quickly for at least 4 days.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Mortar cover / Filling knife / Trowel application
      • Mixer, trowel, smoothing trowel, foam rubber float, plasterer's float
