DIRECTIONS FOR USE

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

SURFACE PREPARATION

  • Application surface should be clean, and free from dirt, oil, paint, loose particles, mortar and plaster residues.
  • Saturate the surface with water, but any standing water must be removed before FIXGROUT EXPAN is applied.
  • In order to achieve better mortar adhesion, chip cavities into full square or dovetail sections prior to FIXGROUT EXPAN application.
  • Minimum acceptable depth is 6 mm. Maximum recommended depth for toppings is 50 mm.

MIXING

  • Add 20 kg FIXGROUT EXPAN into 3.1 lt of water and mix slowly using a low speed mixer for 3 to 5 minutes until a lump free homogenous mixture is achieved.
  • Rest the mixture for 1 to 2 minutes, and then mix again thoroughly before use.
  • Apply the mixture with a trowel.

CURING

  • Immediately proceed with curing after the application. Curing process shall continue under normal temperature conditions for 7 days. This will prevent early drying shrinkage and help to develop strength, durability and other desired properties.
  • Any defi ciencies in the method of curing may also reduce the amount of initial expansion, which is needed to offset drying shrinkage Using INTERCURE curing agent is strongly recommended. Otherwise it is required to keep the application damp during the curing period.
  • Protect FIXGROUT EXPAN from extreme climatic changes during curing period.

WATCHPOINTS

  • The mixture should not be retempered by any addition of powder or water.
  • Application below +5 °C is not recommended.
  • Do not vibrate.
  • Cure properly.

CONSUMPTION

20 kg of FIXGROUT EXPAN will yield approx.10 lt of mortar.
