Protekta 400                                                                                                                               

A flexible polymer for modified cement / mortar.

Protekta 400 is an aqueous, dispersion of acrylic-styrene copolymers to make flexible mortar with high elongation. Supplied as a liquid to modify cement / concrete / mortar.

Uses

It can be used for making waterproofing slurries and patch repairing flexible mortar / concrete.

Advantages

•    Provides superior flexural and elongation properties to mortar/concrete
•    Prevents penetration of water into the concrete to retard corrosion of reinforcement
•    Hinders further penetration of chlorides into concrete
•    Prevents advance of carbonation in the event that the concrete cover is not sufficiently compact and / or is too thin.
•    Effective seal against moisture, i.e., against capillary water absorption and water under pressure, as a result
     of which, the concrete is also protected from chlorides if it is exposed to road salt
•    Can also be applied on moist surfaces
•    Seals even coarse pores in concrete and thus, ensures effective long-term protection

Application

1. The surfaces should be clean and free from dust, loose particles, oil and grease.
2. Protekta 400 is added directly to concrete mix as per the suggested dosage (below).
3. Add water according to mix design to attain the desired consistency.
4. Apply 2 successive coats totaling 1 mm thickness, allow to dry between the coats.

Dosage :
1. Concrete / mortar : 2% of the cement content.
2. Slurry : Adding 10% of cement to Protekta 400 gives coverage of 2 sq.m/L on smooth surfaces and 1.5 Sq.m/L
    on rough surfaces.


Packing : 20L, 50L, & 200L (Other sizes available upon request)

 

Protekta 500                                                                                                                               

A waterproofing and repair mortar polymer.

Protekta 500 is an acrylic polymer that modifies cement and results in strong bonding concrete mortar and it is ready to use product. It can be used for modifying hydraulic setting agents, particularly cement mixtures. It is preferably used in cases where maximum demands are made on the mechanical properties of these products such as touch-up mortar and screed.

Uses

It can be used for repair mortar, honey comb repair, bonding between old and new concrete etc.

Advantages

•   Gives excellent bonding between old and new concrete
•   Very useful in patch repair mortar/concrete
•   Provides water resistant mortar/concrete

Application

1. The surface should be clean and free from dust, loose particles, oil and grease.
2. Concrete : 2% of cement content.
3. Repair Mortar : 2% of cement content.
4. Waterproofing Coat  - 1 coat System : 1 part Protekta 500 + 2 part cement + 0.5 part Silica Sand 30/80.
5. Waterproofing Coat  - 2 coat System : 1 part Protekta 500 + 1 part Water + 1 part cement  : Apply 1st coat  of  watereproofing coat . Apply 2nd coat of waterproofing coat, while 1st coat is green or touchdry.


Coverage : Waterproofing Coat : 3 - 4 sqmt/ltr depending upon site condition.

Packing : 20L, 50L, & 200L (Other sizes available upon request)

 

Protekta Duracoat                                                                                                              

A polymer modified slurry.

Protekta Duracoat is an aqueous emulsion of specially formulated acrylic and hydrophobic polymers with cementitious binders that can be used on all concrete surfaces.

It gives excellent binding and resistance to abrasion when bonding between old and new concrete is required.

Uses

It can be used on any cementations surface such as wall, roof etc.

Advantages

•   Ready to use polymer with high bonding
•   Excellent adhesion to various concrete surfaces
•   It imparts excellent waterproofing to the applied surfaces
•   Can enhance the thermal insulation effect when applied on insulation materials and prevent water seepage

Application

1. The surface should be clean and free from dust, loose particles, oil and grease.
2. It can be applied on any clean and dry concrete surface by brush or spray.
3. It should be brushed or applied in layers to obtain required thickness.
4. Sufficient time between coatings should be given to allow surface to dry.

Dosage : 10 Sq.ft./kg.for 2 coats

Packing : 20L, & 50L (other sizes available upon request)
