Substrate must be sound, clean, and free from oil, grease, loose material, surface contaminants and other bond-inhibiting materials. Steel reinforcement must be clean and free from any rust. Be sure repair area is not less than 3/8 in. in depth. Preparation work should be done by high-pressure water blast, or other appropriate mechanical means, to obtain an exposed aggregate surface.
» Steel reinforcement should be thoroughly prepared by mechanical cleaning to remove all traces of rust. Where corrosion has occurred due to the presence of chlorides, the steel should be high-pressure washed with clean water after mechanical cleaning. For priming of reinforcing steel, use KRAFT HYDROGUARD ONE or KRAFT HYDROGUARD FLEX.
» Saturate concrete surface with clean water or prime with KRAFT POWDER BOND.
» Pour 3.8-5.0Kg water, depending on the preferred work-ability, in a suitable empty container and add slowly while stirring KRAFT KRAFT STRONG REPAIR 84 mortar (25Kg) by using an electric mixer at low speed. Mix to uniform consistency (approx. 3 minutes).
» Apply KRAFT STRONG REPAIR 84 mortar by low pressure or by trowelling for repairing vertical or overhead surfaces.
» Pot life of the mixture: 45min at 25°C.
» Let the material to set for 24 hours before loading any weight.
» Cleaning: Immediately after use, wash the tools with hot water and soap or detergent, along with product residues. Once it has set, cleaning may only be carried out by mechanical means.
» Smooth or paint the final surface after curing with KRAFT FINE REPAIR or industrial and decorative paints.
» Do not apply at temperatures below 10°C and above 30°C.
» Do not add cement or other inert materials to KRAFT STRONG REPAIR 84 mortar.
» Do not add water more than the recommended price.
» Do not add water once the mix has started to set.
» The recommended maximum film thickness is 80mm per layer.
