Levelling and creating pavement intended for a garage

To create and subsequently level a pavement intended for a garage, the use of materials that can withstand the vehicles transiting over it is need.The solution lies in using BETOLEVEL® 15 (thickness up to 15 mm) or BETOLEVEL® 30 (thickness up to 30 mm), self-levelling mortars with a very high superficial hardness and resistance, capable of giving the pavement the mechanical
properties needed for a correct and lasting application.

PREPARING THE SUPPORT

Check the condition of the support; it must be completely
set and clean of dust, paint, oils, etc.

Check any smoothness differences. In function of the required thickness,
choose the leveling mortar, BETOLEVEL® 15 for thickness between 3 to 15 mm, whereas BETOLEVEL® 30 between 8 to 30 mm.

Repair all the gaps and deteriorated areas with the same levelling mortar BETOLEVEL® 15 or BETOLEVEL® 30, or with PROPAM® REPAR 5PROPAM® REPAR TECHNO or PROPAM® REPAR 40 if the support is concrete.

Respect the dilations and contractions joints. Treat the support applying a primer layer before BETOLEVEL® 15 or BETOLEVEL® 30:

  • Porous surface: PROPAM® PRIMER SOL.
  • No porous surface: PROPAM® GRIP.

APPLICATION

Mix BETOLEVEL® 15 or 
BETOLEVEL® 30 with a slow electric mixer (500 rpm), leave to stand for 2 minutes and mix again so that the paste is ready to be used.

Pour the mortar on to the support and spread with a trowel to make levelling easier. Use a wire  brushes to deaerate the mixture and facilitate the levelling.

If applying a second layer, this must be applied as soon as the first layer can be walked on (about 4 hours)

Wait between 8 and 12 hours before covering with ceramic tiles. Wait 72 hours before applying a paint finish.

Recommendations

  • Do not apply to soils with permanent humidity.
  • Apply at a temperature of between + 5ºC and + 35ºC.
  • If applying a second layer, the first one must not be allowed to dry completely, otherwise, a primer layer will be necessary using PROPAM® PRIMER SOL.
  • It is advisable to use PROPAM® DUR as a surface hardener for old mortars and concretes, before applying the product, and waiting 12 hours for it to dry.
  • Respect the mixing water and prepare the correct product mixture, without adding too much air.
  • The indicated thickness for BETOLEVEL® 15 is between 3 and 15 mm, whereas for BETOLEVEL® 30 it is between 8 and 30 mm.
  • On supports with underfloor heating, switch off the heating 24 hours before applying the product.
  • Before applying the paint finish, it is advisable to apply a primer coat with PROPAM® DUR to ensure a more uniform finish.
  • Non-porous media using the primer PROPAM® GRIP.

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. Related products PROPAM® REPAR 20RPROPAM® PRONTO Solution SUBSTRATE PREPARATION The substrate must be firm (minimum tensile strength of 1N / mm2), rough and free of oils, old paint residue, demoulding agents, dust, cement slurries, etc. Moisten the substrate with water before applying PROPAM® CEM RAPID. This operation must be...

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.
