BASF - MasterEmaco S 5400
Application

Used for the structural repair of concrete elements such as:

  • Columns, piers and cross beams of all bridges.
  • In conjunction with electro-chemical cathodic protection systems.
  • Cooling towers and chimneys and other industrial environments.
  • Water treatment and sewerage facilities.
  • Tunnels, pipes, outfalls and all below ground construction especially in harsh ground conditions.
  • Marine structures.

Description

MasterEmaco S 5400 is a single component, extra high strength, high modulus, shrinkage compensated structural repair mortar that meets the requirements of European Norm EN 1504–3 class R4.

The product is a ready to use material that contains Portland cement, hydraulic binders, well graded sands, specially selected polymer fibres (PAN – polyacrylonitryl) and special additives to significantly reduce the risk and incidence of shrinkage cracking.

When mixed with water, MasterEmaco S 5400 forms a highly thixotropic mortar that can easily be spray or trowel applied.

Features and benefits:

  • Can be applied inside and outside, on vertical and overhead surfaces, in dry and wet environments.
  • Formulated with new nanotechnology, shrinkage compensation systems and fibre reinforcement (polyacrylonitryl fibres) to minimise crack tendency.
  • Highly thixotropic - can be applied up to 50 mm without the need of secondary reinforcement.
  • High early and ultimate strengths.
  • Outstanding workability for easy placing and finishing.
  • High modulus and excellent adhesion to host concrete ensuring load transfer.
  • Excellent freeze/ thaw resistance.
  • High carbonation resistance.
  • Very low permeability to water and chlorides.
  • Low chromate (Cr [VI] < 2 ppm).
  • Does not contain chlorides.
  • CE marked.
