Polymeric bonding agent, waterproof mix enhancer & primer
Vetobond PB434 is a modified styrene butadiene rubber emulsion which is supplied as a ready to use white liquid. It is designed to improve the quality of site-batched cementitious mortars and slurries. When used as a primer; it works to seal the substrate and enhance bond to mortars and plasters. Being resistant to hydrolysis, it is ideal for internal and external applications in conjunction with cement.
Vetobond PB434 supplied in 20 & 200 Ltr
Coverage - As required
Original sealed container of Vetobond PB434 has a shelf life of 12 months provided it is stored clear of ground in a dry shaded place below 35ºC.
For application to all surfaces, Vetobond PB434 mortars, toppings and renders must be well compacted on to the primed substrate by trowel. It is frequently beneficial to work a thin layer of the mortar into the slurry primer and then build the mortar on to this layer. Exposed steel reinforcement should be completely encapsulated by the mortar. Vetobond PB434 mortars can be applied at a minimum thickness of 6 mm and up to 40 mm thickness, dependent on the location and configuration of the repair zone. The thickness achievable in overhead locations without the use of formwork is largely dependent on the profile of the substrate.
Refer to the recommended thicknesses shown in the ‘Mix design’ section above. If the recommended thickness is exceeded and sagging occurs, the affected section must be completely removed and reapplied in accordance with the procedure described above. The use of formwork may facilitate achieving the required build. If formwork is used, it should have properly sealed faces to ensure that no water is absorbed form the repair material.
Where thicker sections up to a total thickness of 40 mm are to be built up by hand or trowel application, the surface of the intermediate layers should be scratchkeyed and cured with Vetobond AB432. Applicationof the slurry primer and a further application of Vetobond PB434 mortar may proceed as soon as this layer has set.
Refer to Vetobond PB434 for further mixing and application details.
Saw cut the extremities of the repair locations to a depth of at least 10 mm to avoid feather edging and to provide a square edge. Break out the complete repair area to a minimum depth of 6 mm up to the sawn edge. Clean the surface and remove any dust, unsound or contaminated material, plaster, oil, paint, grease, corrosion deposits or algae. Where breaking out is not required, roughen the surface and remove any laitence by light scabbling or grit blasting.
Oil and grease deposits should be removed by steam cleaning, detergent scrubbing or the use of a proprietary degreaser. The eff ectiveness of decontamination should then be assessed by a pull-off test. Expose fully any corroded steel in the repair area and remove all loose scale and corrosion deposits. Steel should be cleaned to a bright condition paying particular attention to the back of exposed steel bars. Grit blasting is recommended for this process.
Where corrosion has occurred due to the presence of chlorides, the steel should be high-pressure washed with clean water immediately after grit blasting to remove corrosion products from pits and imperfections within its surface.
The substrate should be thoroughly soaked with clean water and any excess removed prior to commencement. A slurry primer should be prepared consisting of 1 volume Vetobond PB434 to 1 volume clean water to 3 volume fresh cement. To obtain a smooth consistency, the cement should be blended slowly into the premixed liquids. The slurry primer should be stirred frequently during use to offset settlement.
The slurry primer should be scrubbed well into the surface of the concrete. Avoid applying too thickly and avoid ‘puddling’.
The repair mortar, topping or render must be applied on to the wet slurry primer. If the slurry primer dries before application of the mortar, it must be removed and the area reprimed before continuing.
In exceptional circumstances, e.g. where a substrate/repair barrier is required or where the substrate is likely to remain permanently damp,contact Saveto Technical Support.
Vetobond PB434 mortars, toppings and renders should not be applied when the temperature is below 5ºC and falling. Neither should they be exposed to moving water curing application. Exposure to heavy rainfall prior to the final set may result in surface scour. If any doubts arise concerning temperature or substrate conditions, consult the local Saveto office.
Cementitious mortars and slurries modified with Vetobond PB434 contain cement powders which, when mixed or become damp, release alkalies which can be harmful to skin. During use, avoid inhalation of dust and contact with skin and eyes. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, eye protection and respiratory protective equipment. The use of barrier creams provide additional skin protection. In case of contact with skin, rinse with plenty of clean water, then cleanse with soap and water. In case of contact with eye, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately – do not induce vomiting.
