Product Description

Epogrout is a cement based mixture designed for repair works which require quick hardening ability; monocomponent, polymerizable, resistant to hydrolysis and breaking, smooth.

The product conforms to the requirements of the 039-2000 (TS 11140-1993) standard: “Adhesives – cement based (hydraulic conjunction), suitable for glazed, ceramic, and floor tiles”.

Fields of Application

This repair mixture can be applied in the following areas:

mounting works for hatchway ladders;

repair of walls in sewage installations and hatchways;

repair of concrete elements of railway tracks and platforms;

repair and restoration of concrete surfaces provided for vehicle traffic

Advantages

achieves high strength within short period of time for transport, and vehicle traffic on the treated surface may be allowed in one hour after application;

reduces to minimum the risk of cracks due to quick hardening;

the product is mixed with water only, easily takes the form of moulds when cast in molds;

shows high fluidity properties;

does not form cracks, waterproof;

resistant to freezing and heating;


Method of application

 

Preparation of the surfaces. Cement based surfaces should be rigid, clean and dust-free. The surface should be totally free of any fat, rust, paraffin, and other substances deteriorating adhesive force. Edges of the surfaces restored by means of breaking should be cut smooth, rust existing on equipment should be removed, new equipment should be added, if necessary. In case there is spilled water on the surface, it should be sponged up, or the water flow should be stopped using Eposeal super plus. Provide water saturation of the surface to be treated with the mixture, however there should not be free water remained on the surface.


Preparation of the mixture. Pour appropriate amount of water measured with a measuring device into the mixing container. Gradually add the Epogrout product and prepare the mixture for 4 minutes using 400-600 RPM mixer. Mix again in approximately 4 minutes during 30-minute period, bringing the product to conditions ready for application.

Application. Spread the prepared mixture over the surface to obtain a 10 – 50mm thick layer. Open the moulds in 15 minutes. In case a layer thickness above 50mm is required, mix the Epogrout product with fine filler (5-10mm) in 1/2 proportion (1kg of filler per 2 kg of the powder).


Recommendations.
The Epogrout repair mixture should be used within 7 minutes at +200C temperature. Application and reaction rate of cement based systems can be affected by the ambient and soil temperatures and other conditions, including air humidity. Low temperature elongates the hydration period, and results in increase of the drying time and effective life. To provide full hardening of the material the ambient and soil temperatures should not drop below the specified minimum values. When applying the mixture  with fine fillers the substances should be dry mixed first and then added to the mixing container with water till the water content in this mixture reaches 10%. The Epogrout product may be applied on the soil. After use all hand tools and devices should be cleaned with water.


Consumption

The required amount of the powder mix consumed to obtain 1mm thickness layer shall be 2 kg/m2.


Shelf Life and Storage Method

The product can be stored during 12 months packed in original sacks in dry and cold conditions. For the short storage period the sacks can be placed one upon the other in three layers.
