    Field of application

    • For use indoors and outdoors
    • Removal of salt and reduction of moisture
    • Sacrificial render on salt-containing substrates
    • Buffer layer under renders mixed according to historical formulations
    • Old buildings, cellars and facades

    Properties

    • High salt storing capacity
    • Capillary-active
    • Reversible
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

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

      • Preparations

        Pre-wet the substrate so that it is slightly moist.

        Remove render, paint layers and coatings at least 80 cm above the damaged area.

        Chase out friable joints to a depth of at least 2 cm.

        Apply product as a scratch coat (contact layer).

    • Application
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 30 °C
      • Mortar cover / Filling knife / Trowel application / Application by spraying
      • Apply product using a suitable tool or machine.

        Level off surface with a long float.

        Finish the surface once set.

        If applying an additional coating, use a grated scraper to roughen the surface once it is sufficiently dry.

        Waiting time before application of further layers: 3 days.

         

        One-layer

        Single layer thickness up to 20 mm.

         

        Two-layer

        Layer thickness per coat 10 - 20 mm.

        Layer thickness up to 30 mm wet-on -wet.

        Layer thickness 30-40 mm, apply second layer once the first is sufficiently dry (approx. 12-24 hours).

        Roughen the first layer with a render comb.

         

    • 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.

        Hairline/shrinkage cracks are safe and are not cause for complaint as they do not impair the properties of the mortar.

        Please contact Remmers Technical Service (phone +49 5432 83900) before applying with machine processing.
