Applying one-coat mortars to smooth surfaces

Not very absorbent and smooth substrates, for example concrete, do not facilitate mechanical anchorage due to the lack of superficial pores, and this leads to false adherences that usually end up producing cracks in the one-coat render or cause it to come loose.

The solution in these cases is to establish a bonding interphase between the substrate and the one-coat mortar via the PROPAM® FIX primer.

PREPARING THE SUPPORT

Repair degraded concrete with PROPAM® REPAR TECHNOPROPAM® REPAR 40 o PROPAM® REPAR 5, depending on the thickness required.

Prior to the application of the mortaromoncoat, the support must be perfectly set, resistant, and cleaned of dust, grease, and debris.

When the support is smooth concrete, it is convenient to wash the surface of the support with acidulated water to open the porosity and then rinse with plenty of clean water.

APPLICATION

On the support prepared in the previous way, proceed as follows: First dilute in the proportion of 1 part of water to 2 of PROPAM® FIX, and mix with the aid of a slow mechanical beater. Then apply with roller or brush. During application, stir the mixture from time to time so that the product does not settle.

Apply the monolayer mortar REVAT®, once the primer has dried PROPAM® FIX, and within 3 days of its application.

Recommendations

  • It can be applied both indoors and outdoors.
  • Do not apply with risk of rain or frost.
  • Use within the range of application temperatures of monolayer mortars.

Technical mortars

Build a barbacue

Making barbecues, chimneys, ovens, etc., requires using specific materials that withstand the extreme conditions to which they are going to be exposed (high temperatures, expansions and contractions, etc.). The solution lies in using PROPAM® REFRACTARIO, a refractory mortar which, due to its technical characteristics, is suitable for coating walls and making joints that are subject to environments in contact with fire or high temperatures. The abrupt changes in temperature that occur when lighting barbecues, fireplaces, ovens, etc., produce dilations. When turning off facilities, contraction movements in the materials used are produced. These changes can produce cracks and even lead to loosening, if the materials used for its...

Build a wall with glass blocks

A glass block is a very useful material both in construction, decoration and interior decoration, as it can be used to separate different ambiances, showers, outside walls, or simply as decoration. It is formed by two pieces of molded glass, which are welded at a very high temperature, to create a vacuum air chamber between the two pieces. This air chamber confers the capacity of thermal-acoustic insulation. Once placed provides highly decorative finishes, given the wide range of formats and colors.

Making quick fixings in masonry

Masonry tasks like arrissing, small anchorings, door and window framing, attaching pawls, sanitary units, hinges, etc., require the use of quick hardening mortars that can provide very high mechanical resistances in a few minutes.  The solution lies in using PROPAM® CEM RAPID, that is, a mortar formulated on the basis of high resistance cements and special quick setting and hardening admixtures.

Fixing glass wool in an enclosure chamber

The need to obtain efficient thermal insulation and even more so since the TBC came into force a few years ago, has lead the construction industry to develop materials like glass wool, for use as thermal insulant and acoustic absorbent in enclosure walls inresidential, commercial, industrial and service buildings. For its correct placement it is necessary to use a mortar that allows the waterproofing of the enclosure against water that can penetrate from the outside, without forming a vapor barrier.
