Systems for applying a one-coat mortar finishing stone

Coatings using one-coat mortars with sprayed aggregate finish, are characterised by having very high superficial strength, and for being particularly suitable for erosion sensitive areas, like bottom floors or base plates in buildings.

For a highly decorative sprayed aggregate finish, that is impermeable to rain water and permeable to water vapor, and available in a wide variety of colour, use REVAT® PIEDRA.

PREPARING THE SUPPORT

The substrate must be perfectly set, resistant and free from dust and grease.

Remove degraded or damaged parts.

In hot weather or very absorbent supports, it is advisable to moisten it in advance.

Placing fiberglass mesh REVAT® 110 where different supports (pillars, slabs, lintels …)

On smooth or non-absorbent concrete supports, the application of PROPAM® FIX as a bridge.

Mix with the recommended amount of water and knead manually or mechanically to obtain a workable and lump-free paste. It is important to always use the same proportion of water for kneading and let the pasta stand for about 5 minutes.

Extend the paste on the support with trowel or with a projection machine.

The thickness of the monolayer mortar will not be less than 10 mm and this will be regularized by the jaws, which act as teachers and union between work cloths.

Next, the chosen aggregate is projected with the aid of a shovel or with the trowel, before the monolayer mortar forms a surface film and limits the anchorage of the aggregate.

When the monolayer mortar begins to harden it is proceeded to iron the projected aggregate without it being covered of excess paste by the excess of thickness. In this way the aggregate, as final finish, is well adhered and without protruding.

Recommendations

  • The usual supports of application are: ceramic brick, termoarcilla, block of concrete, plastered of cement and concrete.
  • Do not apply with direct sunlight or strong wind.
  • Do not apply with risk of rain or frost.
  • Apply between + 5 ° C and 35 ° C temperature.
  • Do not apply to submerged areas.
  • Do not apply to surfaces with an angle of less than 10%.
  • Protect the lower parts of buildings using sockets.
  • During application, protect exposed areas from rain.

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.

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.
