Technical Information
Product Description

AR LATEX RIPRESA is an acrylic co-polymer bonding agent which is used for cementitious systems as a bonding aid, curing agent and gauging liquid. It is resistant to hydrolysis and can be used for external application.

AR LATEX RIPRESA is non-yellowing and has excellent resistance to ultraviolet degradation, heat and most common chemicals.

It is mixed with cement mixture to give higher adhesion power to all surfaces, extra bonding strength, excellent plasticity, higher impermeability and flexure resistance, higher abrasion and acid resistance and can be considered as a waterproof admixture when mixed with cement.

  • Increases impact and abrasion resistance
  • Reduces permeability. Suitable for waterproof sealing and lining of tanks, pools, etc.
  • Improves chemical resistance to oil, grease, salt solutions and mild acids
  • Improves adhesive, tensile strengths of cementitious mixes
  • Self leveling, flowing consistency mixes can be produced to enable placement under difficult conditions

Application Information
Instructions for use

Surface Preparation

The surface must be clean, sound, solid, uncontaminated and compact. Contaminated material, dust, corrosion, grease substances and old paints must be completely removed.

The decayed or damaged area to be repaired should be marked. Cut the marked area to a depth of at least 10mm using a hand held concrete saw or disc grinder to avoid feather edging and to provide a square edge. Break out or chip the complete repair area down to sound base using sharp tools or chipping hammer.

Surfaces should be saturated with water to avoid possible backwater at the moment of casting. Before applying the screed for repairing, apply always the anchorage mortar to assure a perfect adhesion to the old cement support. Do not let the anchorage mortar dry but cast fresh on fresh.
For steel reinforcing use BETOFER or EPOZINC to coat steel bars to protect from rust and allow to dry before applying the repairing mortar.

Additional Information
Health & Safety

AR LATEX RIPRESA can be harmful to skin as it contains cement powders which may releases alkalis when mixed with water.

During application, wear appropriate protective clothing, goggles, gloves and respiratory equipment if necessary.

In case of contact with skin, rinse with water and again wash thoroughly with soap and water. In case of contact with eyes, rinse with plenty of water and seek medical advice accordingly.
