    Field of application

    • For use indoors and outdoors
    • Backfilling compounds
    • Cementing and battering mortars
    • Scumbles and grouts


    • Contains soft segments for a more flexible silica gel
    • Good stress-strain behaviour thanks to larger, low-stress silica gel bridges
    • Gel deposition rate: approx. 50%
    • Non-hydrophobising
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        The substrate must be clean, dust-free and dry.

      • Preparations

        Any construction defects such as cracks, cracked joints, defective connections, rising damp and hygroscopic moisture must be remedied in advance.

        Perform any necessary cleaning gently, e.g. by spraying with cold or warm water or by steam-cleaning; use rotec soft whirl jet technology or Remmers cleaning products (e.g. Traffic Film Remover (0671), Clean FP (0666), Clean AC (0672), Combi WR (0675)) on tough stains.

        To avoid material loss of the substrate, an initial strengthening with KSE 100 or an other suitable strengthener can be carried out before any cleaning measure.

        The absorbency of the substrate must be reduced by applying a fresh coat of primer (e.g. V KSE, KSE 100, KSE 300).

    • Application
      • Application temperature: min. 10 °C max. 20 °C
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +10 °C to max. +20 °C

      • Shake/stir KSE 500 STE thoroughly before use.

        Tips on use and suggested formulations for the compounds in question can be found in the technical guidelines for the KSE module system.

    • Application instructions
      • Take appropriate measures to protect adjacent building elements and materials that should not come into contact with the product.

        Protect freshly treated surfaces from driving rain, wind, sunlight and condensation.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Syringe, spatula, filling knife, paintbrush

      • Tools must be clean and dry.

        After use and before prolonged interruptions of work clean tools with Thinner V 101.

        Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • Store frost-free and cool / protect for moisture / close containers
      • Shelf-life 24 months
      • If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 24 months.

        Use the contents of open containers as quickly as possible.

        After every use, close containers so that they are air-tight, since silica gel reacts with moisture (in the air).

    • Usage
      • Depending on the application / m²
      • Determined on the basis of the individual application.
        (see technical guidelines for KSE module system).

    • General information
      • Current regulations and legal requirements must be taken into account and deviations from these must be agreed separately.

        The relevant test certificates must be observed when planning and carrying out work.

        Carry out a quantitative analysis of aggressive salts if there are any salts present that could damage building materials.

        High concentrations of harmful salts can cause major structural damage that impregnation cannot prevent.

        Residue (e.g. surfactants, wax) from previous cleaning measures can have adverse effects on the treatment and must therefore be completely removed.

    • Disposal instructions
      • Larger quantities of leftover product should be disposed of in the original containers in accordance with the applicable regulations. Completely empty, clean containers should be recycled. Do not dispose of together with household waste. Do not allow to enter the sewage system. Do not empty into drains.

    • Safety / regulations
      • For further information on the safety aspects of transporting, storing and handling the product and on disposal and environmental matters, please see the current Safety Data Sheet.
