Method of Application
1 SURFACE PREPERATION
Clean the surface with wire brush or scrubber to remove hidden dirt, loose particles, laitance, & dust. Degrease the surface by using suitable solvents.
Repair the concrete spalled portion by saw cutting the extreme edges of the repair location to a depth of at least 10mm to avoid featheredging & to provides strong substrate.
Clean the concrete surface to remove any contamination where breaking is not possible. Roughen the surface by light scabbling or grit blasting.
Precautions & Limitations
Recommended dosage to be followed to achieve desired results.
When working in hot temperature conditions, extra water may be added to the repair mortar to compensate for the evaporation loss & make the mortar workable.
