Mapegrout Thixotropic

Application

  • Repairing deteriorated areas of concrete, corners of pillars and beams, edges of balconies damaged by the oxidization of reinforcing steel.
  • Reconstruction of reinforcing rod covers in reinforced concrete structures.
  • Smoothing surface defects, such as gravel nests, new casting joints, holes created by formwork spacers, exposed rods etc.
  • Filling of rigid joints.
  • Repair of surfaces subjected to heavy abrasion (canals, industrial floors, ramps etc).
  • Smoothing of diaphragm walls and tunnels.
  • Repairing viaducts for highways, roads and railways.

Description

A ready-mixed powder mortar composed of high-strength cements, selected aggregates, special additives and synthetic fibres. When mixed with water, Mapegrout Thixotropic becomes an easily workable mortar with high thixotropic properties enabling it to be applied on vertical surfaces without sagging, even in great thicknesses and with no need for formwork.

Meets the requirements defined by BS EN 1504-9 and the minimum requirements claimed by BS EN 1504-3 for structural mortars of class R3.

Advantages:

  • Very high flexural and compressive strength.
  • Has a modulus of elasticity, coefficient of thermal expansion and permeability to water vapour similar to those of high quality concrete.
  • Waterproof.
  • Has high adhesion to old concrete, provided it has been soaked with water beforehand, and also to reinforcing rods, especially if they have been treated with Mapefer or Mapefer 1K.

Applications:

  • Repairing deteriorated areas of concrete, corners of pillars and beams, edges of balconies damaged by the oxidization of reinforcing steel.
  • Reconstruction of reinforcing rod covers in reinforced concrete structures.
  • Smoothing surface defects, such as gravel nests, new casting joints, holes created by formwork spacers, exposed rods etc.
  • Filling of rigid joints.
  • Repair of surfaces subjected to heavy abrasion (canals, industrial floors, ramps etc).
  • Smoothing of diaphragm walls and tunnels.
  • Repairing viaducts for highways, roads and railways.

Product Options

Mapecure SRA:

A special additive which has the property of reducing both plastic and hydraulic shrinkage. When added, it has the capacity to slow down evaporation of the water and promote the development of hydration reactions. Helps to reduce shrinkage by 20–50%.
