Instructions for use

 

ARCAFLEX FLEXIBLE JOINT MORTAR

 

Application Conditions
Do not apply if the temperature is <5°C or >30°C
Do not apply on frozen substrates or freezing is forecast within 48 hours of the application.
Do not apply under hot dry sun.

 

Product Preparation
Mix the 2 components in equal proportions (in terms of weight)
Pour the component B into component A and stir with a trowel or an electric mixer until a homogeous paste is obtained.

 

Surface Preparation
The substrate must be, brushed clean and free of any loose material, dust and any loose particles which will prevent proper adhesion: laitance, separating agents, etc.
The surface must be clean and cohesive.
Wash and vacuum out cracks and joints.
Place a backing foam at the bottom of the joint.
Do not use in the presence of running water (major leaks).

 

Application

  • Widen the crack using a chisel and hammer to a minimum of 2x 4cm and break away any deteriorating concrete (the edges of the crack should be vertical or beveled in an inverted “v”).
  • Note: The width of the crack should be twice as large as the depth. See illustration below.
  • Once the crack has a wider base, clean thoroughly using a wire brush, a damp cloth or a vacuum to remove small particles that will prevent the adhesive from bonding to the concrete surface.
  • Prepare the product as indicated above
  • Insert and pack down the flexible mortar to fill the entire area.
  • Level off with a wet trowel
